Now 19, Vince is preparing to really grow musically, with the release of “Land of the G’s”
I’ve been hip to Vince Ash for several years. His first video he sent in “Eastside“, when he was 16, instantly struck a chord with me. Having the voice and bravado of someone much older and wiser. The influence of Biggie and Pac was more than apparent. For that to be coming out of someone at such a young age, he was someone I’ve made a point of keeping up with. Now 19, Vince is preparing to really grow musically. His first offering from his upcoming project, the EASTSIIDE EP, is the visual for “Land Of The G’s”. A song that, as Vince put it “Basically [gives] you the ins and outs of living in a heavily gang influenced area [and] what I picked up as a shortie, primarily being raised around my family.” I met Vince in Gary Indiana to shoot a roughly concepted visual in which we wanted to capture the every day struggle of life. In Gary Indiana, there is nothing but struggle. The town is nearly a wasteland, and has been crumbling for years. By my estimate, 1-3 houses is abandoned or dilapidated. Only liquor stores, churches, and big box stores and McDonald’s remain. The neglect we can have on our neighbors is astounding. Take a look for your self below, in Vince’s new video “Land of the G’s”.
