Album Notes
An innovative record producer and thought provoking lyricist, Vesuveo delivers an honesty, passion, and social consciousness rarely heard in today's hip-hop on his debut solo album Shine. Chuck D of Public Enemy says, "It's a great record. Shine shines." WIth subject matter ranging from domestic violence to personal healing, race politics to falling into and out of love, Vesuveo tackles life's richest and most difficult experiences gracefully.

The first single off the album "Algiers Point" features Evelyn Harris of iconic Grammy-Award winning a capella group Sweet Honey In The Rock. Vesuveo wrote the song after reading an article in The Nation magazine entitled "Katrina's Hidden Race War" that exposed unsolved race-based crimes in the Algiers Point neighborhood of New Orleans after the floods, which have yet to bring a conviction.

A native New Yorker of Italian American descent, Vesuveo first broke on the scene in the mid 90s with Moonshine and The Anonymous, the critically acclaimed underground hip hop groups he founded. Since then, he's worked with Eminem, Mystic, Cut Chemist, Medusa, and Dilated Peoples while sharing the stage with Black Eyed Peas, KRS-One, Biz Markie, and Rock Steady Crew. His top 10 hit "Green and Gold" by The Anonymous featuring Eminem, Vesuveo & Able remains an underground classic. Album tracks produced by Vesuveo, Zinndeadly, Janko Radosavljevic, Withope, Stupid Genius, and Production by 1000.

Praise for Vesuveo:
"It's a great record. 'Shine' shines." -Chuck D of Public Enemy
"Vesuveo's 'Facts O' Lyfe' sounds like the hip hop baby that Bob Dylan and Tracy Chapman might have had." -Jack Splash (Grammy-winning producer of Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Missy Elliott)
