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.
