#ManonFire Vincent Vega Album Review

How does one define an MC? Urbandictionary.com gives this description "
Master of Ceremonies or Microphone Controller. A rapper who is either the host of an event; someone with enough flow and skill to be considered a master of the art of rap." Man on Fire is Vincent Vega's effort to prove he has enough flow and skill to be considered a master of his craft.

Sorry, no snap your fingers, gun totting music over this way. Vega condones commercial rap with the line "lyrics don't mean a thing, just find a nice beat and act like you killed it." Vincent Vega's love is music and discusses his relationship with her, especially in songs like in "Hear Every Rhyme."

Applaud him for the cd's great production, mesh-well but not overpowering collabos and lyrical content. Hats off to him for promoting local businesses (become a member of morethanaspace.com) and nod your head to the way he supports the artists he works with (get the album and follow everyone associated!). Is Vincent Vega a MC? We'll give him the Kanye shrug and acknowledge this to be true.

  1. Very good review..which rings true about most "TRUE" HIP HOP artists their music ...its not about violence and glamorizing social stigmas...yet a voyage into what most people miss nowadays..good music without the commercialization and negative connotations which plagues an abundance of the "rap" music which we hear everyday.
    Artists such as Common, Talib K, Mos Def and the like have become a mainstay in hip hop music with a similar style of the craft and when the momentum picks up for Vega, his level of success achieved should be no different....Pick up a copy of Man on Fire....and hear what we all have been missing!
