Very Important Personas (V.I.P)
Boisterous, outstanding, attention grabbing, and gifted with unmatched talent are the two young men and sole members of the hip hop duo V.I.P. better known as Very Important Personas. 23 year old rapper K. iLL and 22 year old producer/rapper E-Nyce are a dynamic duo known for adding life and creativity to self written and produced upbeat tracks. As a New York native hailing from the Bronx, E-Nyce honed his skills during his early youth playing instruments. He grew up in a family that embraced music and encouraged him to nurture his musical talents whether it was playing the drums, writing hooks and verses or simply producing distinct and favorable beats. E-Nyce continues to produce a large portion of V.I.P.'s songs in his home based studio. Artist K. iLL was given the gift to rhyme as a young boy and continued to sharpen his skills in grade school whenever the opportunity presented itself. He joined in ciphers at school or in the neighborhood with seasoned artist. As a teen he wrote and delivered raps to share simple thoughts and expression, which helped shape and mold his musical delivery and persona. K. iLL who is a native of Massachusetts met E-Nyce by chance at school during a class they both had. The only common interest that united the musically inclined duo was their respect for music and the hip-hop culture. The name Very Important Personas most commonly referred to as V.I.P. was created by K. iLL who rapped about himself and his soon to be partner in music in a song produced by E-Nyce prior to becoming a duo. On a track titled V.I.P., K. iLL rapped, “…we're V-I, Very Important Personas…”, without having the slightest idea that the moniker would stick. Together V.I.P. honors the accomplishments and talents of artist such as Jay-Z, Jadakiss, Beanie Siegel, Kanye West, & the legendary Michael Jackson. They remain inspired by all genres of music that is influential to their own musical development and craftsmanship. E-Nyce gives credit to producers such as Pharell, Timbaland, and JustBlaze for creating beats that would inspire his generation to go above and beyond in the development of music and production. V.I.P. is currently working on their 3 disc trilogy which will be released consecutively as mixtape.
