On the Rise: V!RTU

By The Rap Scout
Hip Hop Vibe Staff Writer

The North Carolina hip hop scene is unlike many other hip hop scenes in the South. Because of the influx of people, from the military, people come from all over the place. Current, North Carolina rap star, J. Cole, moved to North Carolina through the military.

V!RTU is among the rappers in the North Carolina hip hop scene. Currently, he is based in Durham, but he is originally from Southern California. Earlier this year, V!RTU and his family of six moved from the West Coast to Durham, because of his work.

Quickly, V!RTU has found work in Durham with several rappers and he has a gig, hosting a radio show in the area. Hip Hop Vibe ran across V!RTU this summer and is now posting the interactions in an interview.

Read the entire interview below:

How long have you been rapping?
Seriously, I have been doing this for ten years. Ever since 2006, I have been doing numerous recordings, going real hard.

Where are you originally from?
Southern California, we moved around a lot so I can’t really say where I am from, exactly. I stayed near Lancaster until I graduated from high school.

How did you find your way to North Carolina?
I came here through my job, but I have joined the hip hop scene.

How long have you been in North Carolina?
I have been in North Carolina for nearly six months.

Have you teamed up with any local artists?
I worked with DJ Flash, SkyBlew, and Chris Sutton. They all worked with me on my album, I Work Harder Than You!

I Work Harder Than You!, can you tell us more about the album?
The reason I called the album this is because I have not seen anyone who works harder than me, both in hip hop and out.
