Vision The Kid: "Lost Summer"
The TC has such a vibrant rap scene that its pretty easy to lose track of who’s who and doing what. I have never heard of local rapper Vision the Kid until very recently, but he’s an up and coming local emcee who happens to have a record coming out this Fall. It’s called Lost Summer and was produced by Ryan “Tru” Truax who has previously worked with St. Paul Slim. I definitely dig the bluesy samples worked in to the title track, and Vision himself at first glance seems to be a rapper who’s voice shares an eerie similarity to Eminem while his thematic palette seems more in tune with “hard luck” rappers like Buck 65. Anyway, check out the title track off of Lost Summer below and if you dig it you can head to the record release show at Honey on November 10th.
