MP3: VNCHY – “19+” (Prod. by Prezident Jeff)
Premiered by EARMILK, Ottawa Rapper Releases Ambitious First Single From Forthcoming Neverland EP
“His voice sounds somewhere along the lines of Sticky Fingaz or Nine, with a little bit of a Dr. Dre undertone,” said HipHopCanada of Ottawa-based rapper VNCHY, who just released “19+,” the first single off his forthcoming Neverland EP. The track has the young, Congo-born rapper presenting his rugged rhymes and deep, raspy voice atop dark but elegant production by Prezident Jeff, whose credits include Little Simz and Kevin Gates. “19+” premiered via EARMILK, who said, “With swirling, haunting vocals and fantastic lyrical content and flow, we’re impressed at how incredibly far the young talent has been able to get in his short life-span. We can’t stop playing this, and neither will you.”
“During ’19+’ I was in a very rebellious mentality. The very title speaks to the idea of a ‘transitional phase,’ however, that phase is yet to be fully understood in capacity,” VNCHY explains. “During the creation process I had newly turned 19 and felt that while those around me viewed such a phase as a time to party and exploit all the freedoms that come with being a legal adult (in Canada), all I wanted was to exercise my other wants and desires. I wanted to exercise such desires as running my own business with my own personal team. I wanted to properly put my family and team on a level we all desired. However, my goals didn’t finish there for I have bigger goals and bigger plans at such a young age. Progression has and always will be a must.”
VNCHY has opened for the likes of Big K.R.I.T. alongside Two-9 and has performed alongside Post Malone on his White Iverson Tour, and now, at the ripe age of 19, he’s ready to take his distinct sound to the spotlight. Stay tuned for his Neverland EP, releasing later this summer.
VNCHY and his MVMNT Collective team are hosting a 19+ event in Toronto on June 5th at Sterling Lofts.

VNCHY has been making music since the ripe ages of 15 but it wasn’t until last year that his progress made exponential leaps. He began his surge by gathering together a team of like-minded individuals and creating a business entitled MVMNT Collective Inc. Through the creation of an entity that is distinct from him yet represents anything and everything he believes in, VNCHY was able to open himself up to many more business ventures and opportunities that would not have before been possible on his own.
He released his first single, “Bane,” on SoundCloud, which was able to garner over 6,000 listens simply through word of mouth and promotion from close friends and family. He followed up his initial release with his track “Godlevel,” which was instantly picked up by Noisey, iLuvLola, Boi1da, AshleyOutrageous, Mechanical Dummy, and more and now has over 7,000 listens on SoundCloud. These releases helped VNCHY create a nice buzz for himself which led to the creation of a loyal fan base allowing him to begin doing performances as many people started showing interest in wanting to hear him perform live. As such, VNCHY has opened for the likes of Big K.R.I.T. alongside Two-9 at Cabaret Underworld in Montreal and has performed alongside Post Malone on his White Iverson Tour.
