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, Vinchi, developed a fondness for attention and soon entered the school’s fashion and talent showcases where he fine tuned his showmanship and savoir fair. After graduation, he attended LaGuardia Community College and studied theater and communications.
Vinchi also began performing at open mics and small venues around the New York metro area – Harlem, the Bronx, Long Island and New Jersey – and wet his thirst for success after winning a $1,000 prize at a local amateur night contest.
In 2007, he moved to Atlanta and began working with a number of up-and-coming producers that helped season his style by developing neck-popping bass heavy production to add to his slow, marinating braggadocio. Listen closely to his twang and see if you can’t pick up the popular idioms of your favorite trap house.
Upon the prodigal son’s return to the Big Apple, Vinchi began recording new material and has worked with several producers including J Staffz, Johnny Montana, Infinity, The Traveler and Jem Stones.
The 21-year-old Bronx native’s swagger is relaxed, his raps are clever. His radio-friendly beats are energizing, mature and mannish; ready to make the most “skeptical” women blush.
I’m real happy that people are feeling the music,” Vinchi said. “My team and I are looking forward to giving all my fans what they want to hear: hi-energy beats and killer rhymes. Working with J Staffz has been a great experience as he really conceptualizes beats to fit the lyrics instead of the other way around.
It was only a matter of time for cliques – like Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang, Wayne’s Cash Money and Dirty South master DJ Blaz – to take notice of Young Vinchi. Combine that love with shout-outs, endorsements, spins and heavy rotation from many of digital radio’s top mix shows and streaming hip hop stations and it’s easy to see how Vinchi’s new single “My Style” (radio release Sept. 12th) will be a hit!
His latest release, “My Style” is infectious, in your face and on its way to becoming a favorite party, strip-club and workout jam.
Produced and arranged by talented Toronto-born super-producer, J Staffz (website), who’s worked with more than 150 different artists including Wiz Khalifa, Yung Berg, 40 Glocc and G Unit’s Tony Yayo), “My Style” oozes with Vinchi’s confidence, game and swaggatude. The song features vocalist TV.
Bet on this new boss to continue the momentum this fall as his New York-label, TroubleMaka Records (website) continues its promotion of a slew of new tracks from the “It’s Me” EP – including his current- released single “Getcha Hands Up” (reverbnation), also produced by JStaffz. “I Want The Cash” “Nasty” and “Baddest Lil’ Chick” produced by The Traveler – on several new mix-tape collections, live club performances and social media Podcasts.
