Equal parts throwback and modern, “No Tomorrow” is a soulful, undeniable banger from rapper-producer Vice Soulectric. It also just so happens to be the driving force behind his latest video. Fresh off last Friday’s release of ‘Vice For President 2’ LP, Vice teamed up with fellow Buckeye State resident Ced Lynch for these sharp, stylish visuals. They center on the artist’s hustle, as we catch glimpses of his writing process, samplechopping skills, and moments in the studio laying down vocal tracks. It’s all in a day’s work for Vice aka “Clark Kent with the dark tint.” But there are moments […]

Though it was born in the East, grew up in the West, and then […]

Why is it easier to tear someone down than it is to build them up? In truth, our differences should be celebrated; there’s no reason to segregate ourselves because of how we look, what we believe, or how we view the world. Unfortunately, this message isn’t passed onto the youth as often as it should, which in turn makes the world a more hateful place. And while society may chastise African Americans for not fitting to a set series of characteristics, Vice Soulectric will stand up and refute those claims. “Hate Myself,” which is beautifully shot in a snowy cemetery, […]
