The Verce, short for Verce-a-tile, began his recording career in Atlanta, GA. The Verce started by following the southern trend of distinctive hip-hop, and has since stepped out to write and perform truly versatile songs from productions that illuminate electronic hip-hop; from the studio to the stage. The Verce’s stage show is awe inspiring as he exposes his soul by mixing his sound with classic vibrant onstage colors and laser sharp lights, creating his unique electronic hip hop performance.
Kontoure caught up with Verce to talk about his music and his start:
1. What inspires you to do music?
The ability to create an emotion and connect with a person through songs are what inspire me to do music.
2. What are you currently working on?
I just dropped a new video titled “Matt McConaughey that releases July 1st. Unfortunately I am dealing with alot of backlash because of the single cover art I used for that video. But hey any publicity is good publicity. ha ha ha I am also working on another video titled “Geeked” that drops in August. We have a new label Fkn Muzik and are currently signing new artist. I’m also releasing 3 new singles this summer and preparing for my college tour this fall.
3. How do you feel the current state of the entertainment industry?
Honestly I am really not sure how to feel about the industry. I mean the artist out today are really talented but the structure of how music is released is flawed. The entertainment industry is primarily set up to release quick hits and doesn’t allow time to learn more about the artist. The music doesn’t represent a voice of a region or the story of the musician anymore. Because of this everyone has the same sound, same look etc. Hopefully the industry will find a solution to promote more creativity.
4. Where do you see your career taking you?
Honestly I try not to map it out to much. I am doing a lot of writing for other artist. Me and my business partner are venturing out into short films and received our own distribution deal. We have a few more business ventures but I am not at liberty to say at this time.
5. How long have you been doing music?
Too long. Officially about 7 years but I have been interested in music since I was 3.
