Through molding his approach to rap based on the unique stylings of the North and South, Vanity Wyze is forging his name in the industry. His music is defined by his come-up and the memorable lessons that have contributed to his success. Amongst his many accomplishments, Vanity Wyze released his full-length LP of 10 tracks, Vanity before Wyze, in March 2022. Now a professional recording artist, Vanity Wyze works full-time, side-by-side with legendary Sonny King at Musicbykinginc & Music for Love International charity and record label. With records spanning TV, film, and video games, the artist brings versatility and a new edge to the rap scene.

Anytime Vanity Wyze and Sonny King collaborate, they are sure to create a hit record. Their song “I Won’t Miss” became a soundtrack feature on NBA 2K and the music behind the James Harden highlight film of 2021. Now, the duo is heating up the rap scene with their track “Stayed Down,” which blends Vanity Wyze’s lyrical intensity with Sonny King’s expert production. “Stayed Down” was featured on the soundtrack to Lizzo’s hit TV show, Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, which also featured Lizzo herself and stars like Cardi B, Missy Elliott, Latto, DJ Khaled, DMX, Mariah Carey, and more. The track is a breezy, feel-good, and compelling take on their grind to stardom. It’s an inspiring anthem to help you stay focused on what matters most to you. The music video was shot in Charlotte, North Carolina, and features the rappers sporting the jersey of Melo Ball (of the Charlotte Hornets) and chilling in a Carolina blue Slingshot and hanging around iconic buildings like the Bank of America stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers. Let Vanity Wyze and Sonny King’s inspirational track be the fuel to achieving your dreams.

Tell us about how your personal upbringing influences your musical creations?

We were too poor to be rich and too rich to be poor. My upbringing was very much influenced by the environment. I saw good people get hurt. Even though I was never into the street life I had front row seats. I was very critical of what was going on around me. From the bullies to the hoodies. Betrayal from the closest companions made trust very trivial. I begin writing about what I saw, blended with what I went through.

Where do you draw inspiration from when producing lyrics and forming your flow? What topics do you tend to be inspired by?

Lyrics are like clever codes engraved in the beats. So when I hear the beat it guides me towards the emotion. I find the emotion which in turn helps me find the words. The words paint the picture.

What is a memorable lesson that you’ve learned during your career that you continue to carry with you in life?

There’s a few lessons I hold dear. For one someone is always watching,  and no matter what background you come from, we all have the ability to achieve exactly what we desire, so long as your vision is clear and your heart is pure.

What keeps you motivated and focused on continuing to work hard?

The possibility of great success keeps me motivated. So those times where I might feel like giving up, one thought comes to mind. ” Don’t let your darkest nights be the reason you don’t shine”.

Why did you choose to film in Charlotte, North Carolina, and what was the best part of the shoot?

Charlotte, North Carolina is a beautiful place. It was ideal for bringing the visuals to Stayed Down to life. Every part of the shoot was special in it’s own way. But if I must choose one it would have to be cruising in the Polaris Slingshot catching the breeze and gazing at the city.

What is the message you hope viewers take away for themselves by the end of the song and video? How do you hope it makes people feel?

I hope to inspire, if only one, to never take the moments for granted, focus on love without conditions, pay attention, and remember that positive thoughts along with the right moves lead to victory. Also,  mistakes are ok as long as you learn from them and old keys won’t open new doors.
