From the minute you press play on a track from Vert there is something distinct happening. The combination of bass, choir, and synth that a listener would liken to a production of a trap music artist with a quality instrumental begins and you may feel that you can anticipate the lyrical style and delivery to follow. But that's not what happens. A commanding voice ushers phrases and metaphors that with each bar leaves you saying "...Oh."
A native of St. Louis, MO, this trend setting entrepreneur aims to utilize the gritty, chest pounding sounds from the likes of producers such as Metro and Bebop of 808 Mafia while still challenging us to keep up with his complex word play. All of this can more quickly be stated as nothing will be the same.
As an introductory course Vert issues his first ever mixtape The Prerequisite, hosted by world renowed Atlanta-based DJ Holiday slated to release February 20, 2013. With production from the likes of Metro, 808 Mafia, and Marvelous J The Prerequisite is shaping to be the staple mixtape for 2013. With more work to follow including his second mixtape Vert Lymon.
From here on out, turn the bass up and pay attention...
