A new song titled “Vice City” by later American rapper, singer, and songwriter XXXTENTACION’s is now available on all DSPs for the first time.
“vice city” is the earliest song publicly available on XXXTENTACION’s SoundCloud. The song is a classic to many fans with its melancholy melody, cynical lyrics with the juxtaposition of Laura Mvula’s sample of “Sing to the Moon,” proving the versatility X has with his music, switching from rage rap to deep, pondering music. X has stated that he likes to blend and cross genres and “vice city” only serves to support this point.
It’s one of X’s most well-known compositions from his “SoundCloud Era,” and it was the first song to appear on his SoundCloud page. From sampling Laura Mvula to using a Logic-style rhythm he found on YouTube, the song demonstrates XXXTENTACION’s talent even at the tender age of 16. This piece of work is more than just a song for X fans. It was the first glimpse inside the complicated and at times depressing mind of someone with whom many of his fans could identify. When compared to other artists at the time, it was instantly evident how raw and original X was, and his genre-free approach established a gateway to the music-making environment we take for granted today.
