On March 23rd, 2015, New York-based hip-hop artist VACA released “Drive By Slow,” a short, melodic track over an airy beat carefully constructed by Los Angeles-based producer FORTUNE.

“Drive By Slow,” which was released following the 22 year-old’s brief hiatus from the city’s hip-hop scene, was just a preview of what’s to come for the kid.

Less than a month later, VACA’s back bearing a hard-hitting cut titled “In the Clutch.”

With Soundbank on the beat production accompanying VACA’s rapid-fire storytelling, this record introduces not only a new sound for VACA but for the city of New York.
