IT’S VICKEY! He screams in the booth as his head bobs to the beat. VickeyBoy, straight from the “DALE” as he put’s it represents a movement. But not like every other movement we have heard about. No. He represents Power, Money, and Property, PMP as it is plainly put. We want Power, Money and Property. That is the goal and that’s what we are going to get. Vickey is a skilled “Lyrical Technician” who makes beats and writes his own stuff daily. He refuses to let things stop him and Nine5Four is privileged to have been able to get the inside scoop on his music, the movement and the life of Vickey B.
Nine5Four: Good afternoon... How are you today Vickey???
VickeyBoy: I’m good how bout ya self fam?
Nine5Four: I am good thanks for asking. Thank you for doing the interview with us. Let's get right to it... How did you get involved with music?
VickeyBoy: it all started when I was 6 years old I always had a love for music growing up I idolized Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G. My pops use to say it ran in the family because I had relatives in the game way before me but over the years staying in Hollywood Fl I wrote lyrics until the age of 8 10 when I started really taking this rap shit seriously
Nine5Four: No doubt... So what influences you to write what you write??/
VickeyBoy: watching my mom’s struggle to keep a roof over our heads while raising 5 kids I mean it was crazy that’s what really influenced me to write what I write I speak on topics in lyrics what I see in the streets in the hoods I grew up in and how it really is ya dig no fabricating
Nine5Four: Wow so you come from a big family... Are any of your siblings involved in music...???
VickeyBoy: my oldest sister she use to sing and my lil brothers only 6 years old my other sisters are too busy doing them to really be into music but I do have some relatives on my father’s side called the Cornelius brothers I don’t know if you ever heard of them but they sang "working at the car wash" that old school shit lol
