FIFTY VINC gives us dark cinematic conviction in his latest single, We Gonna Make It

Take the darkest rap track to have ever dominated your eardrums, throw plenty of cinematic flair on it, light it up with motivational conviction, and you may just get close to imagining what FIFTY VINC delivered in his latest single, We Gonna Make It.

And yeah, I know, all of that sounds like hyperbole, but once you hit play, you’ll soon see that even the most superfluous attempts to encapsulate the energy in We Gonna Make It is utterly futile.

The German music producer, composer for TV and Film and founder of FIFTY VINC productions has already sealed sync deals with some of the biggest networks in the industry, including Battle Of The Year, NBA, NFL, DAZN, ProSieben, RTL, UFC, SkySport and MTV.

There is an unignorable immensity to his production style that is undoubtedly going to see him go even further in his already glistening career.

We Gonna Make It is now available to stream on Spotify.

European rap luminary, Jay Creti stamped down his domineeringly dark sound with ‘Ich Liebe Dich’

European hip hop artist, Jay Creti is a product of the modern multicultural world, as his music, especially his latest domineeringly dark track, Ich Liebe Dich, which merges German and Italian rap bars over caustic industrial hip hop layers, chilling choral effects and the steady bassy rattle of the 808s.

Jay Creti may mix up his sound between releases, but whichever genres that he is leaning into, you can count on an archetype-smashing aural ensemble. There really is no understating the atmosphere behind Ich Liebe Dich with the cinematic production, harsh stylistic discord and pure unbridled vocal energy.

Ich Liebe Dich is now available to stream on Spotify.

FIFTY VINC & DIDKER have released their cinematic juggernaut of a hip hop track, WORK IT OUT, featuring Agf.Israel

FIFTY VINC & DIDKER’s latest single, WORK IT OUT, featuring Agf.Israel is ripped on steroids; motivational hip hop may not be an anomaly on the airwaves, but very few can match the energy in this cinematic juggernaut of a workout hip hop track that is all about the tough love. It’s an admirable move for VINC to channel sheer aggression while at the same time giving his listeners a viable outlet for theirs. The new wave of rap may be all about violence and Kanye stalking his ex; VINC is a refreshing exception to that insidious trend of artists rapping about their arsenal and XANAX addiction.

FIFTY VINC (Vincent Jewell) is an independent producer and successful composer for TV and film; he’s also one of the pioneers putting Germany on the hip hop map. Every self-respecting hip hop fan should pay close attention to what comes next.

You can check out WORK IT OUT on YouTube or add it to your Spotify playlists.
