VICEVERSAH was raised on Gun's n Roses, Nirvana, Wu-Tang Clan, Rage Against the Machine, Doc Cheatham, Biggie, and Led Zeppellin among others. His razor sharp delivery and keen ear set him apart from other rappers.

Born in NYC but raised in the suburbs, rhyming was an unlikely trail for VICE to blaze. He started performing at the age of fifteen at political open mics, spitting scathing verses that caught the attention of anyone within earshot. However, a lack of original production kept him from making headway into a real project. A 2002 EP was circulated through the Boston area and received critical acclaim, but the disc was not actually replicated officially.

In 2003, after having dropped out of NYU a year earlier, VICE linked up with producer, The Arcitype, and the two immediately began making track after track. At this point, it was clear that an album was in the works, and stirred up by the criticism of skeptics, VICE wryly named the album "Career Suicide."

Since then VICE has been no stranger to the stage. He has performed at some of the Northeast's most reputable venues, such as The Middle East Downstairs, Harper's Ferry, and The Bowery Poetry Club. VICE even had the opportunity to perform inside the general assembly hall at The United Nations in 2007 for their International Day Of Peace celebrations. VICE has had the opportunity to share the stage with some of Hip Hop's greatest legends including:

Jay Electronica
Jeru The Damaja
Raekwon of Wu-Tang
Made Men
Edo. G
Immortal Technique
Styles P
Dead Prez
Rapper Big Pooh (of Little Brother)
Zioin I
Brother Ali
and more...

With multiple albums under his belt, his selection as one of URB Magazine's Next 1000 Artists and as one Hip Hop Official's Artist of the Week Battle finalists, and his next highly anticipated LP on the horizon, VICE can only foresee himself as a powerful voice for a generation who may rather remain silent.
