"When you pursue a career in music as a self-employed artist and you see your dreams slowly becoming reality, you tend to neglect the people in your vicinity. Being obsessed with an idea is never good, and i think i had to learn the hard way. Sometimes you just have to let go in order to hold on to something new, and in some cases, better." - Polemikk
"Fade means a lot to me. When i heard the Antihero Begins mixtape for the first time i just knew i had to work with the guys. In my opinion, this song is a classic, a timeless piece of music that will not lose it’s coolness in the years to come.” - 7inch

Young Vinchi boasts plenty ‘bout being a Freaky King looking for his Freaky Queen So Vinchi release of his debut single “BLC: Baddest Lil’ Chick” on New York’s TroubleMaka Records. The song, with its bouncy HotLanta flavor, is infectious, in your face and certain to be a strip-club jam, a Hummer joint and Ipod favorite.Young Vinchi was born Albert Neysmith Jr. on May 31, 1987 to Jamaican parents and raised in the Bronx, N.Y. by a close-knit family. He began rapping at age 8 to entertain his friends at school and by the time he got to Banana Kelly High School he was the designated class “interrupter”.Like all entertainers, he developed a fondness for attention and soon entered the school’s fashion and talent showcases where he fine tuned his showmanship and savoir faire. After graduation, he attended LaGuardia Community College and studied theater and communications.
