"Without Struggle There Can Be No Progress" -Frederick Douglass
Even as a child, Vic naturally gravitated toward music because of his constant relocation in Illinois. From kindergarten to 7th Grade, he never went to the same school more than one year. So when not playing sports, Vic spent nights blacked out with old school tape deck legends. From Slick Rick to LL Cool J, Freeze emerced himself in hip hop to forget drab surroundings of an lower middle class apartment complex to the pressure of being the only black in an all white class room.
So how his music born? The beat machine had the same 4-bar loop playing because they couldnt save the track. The mic hung down from the ceiling like a punching bag. For hours, he and his college roommate, Paulie Rhyme, would work on their craft to hone the art of songwriting, rhyming and performing. As a result, after some dedication and hard work, Vic Freeze has shared the same stage with legends such as: Krs-One, Big Daddy Kane, Wu-Tang, and Talib Kweli.
After touring in late 2008, Vic recorded the mixtape single "Now" which was hand picked by DJ Green Lantern's MySpace Invasion Mixtape Series. His first national mixtape, it showed that not only hip hop heads but mainstream music appreciated his sincerity and feeling in his songs. Now in 2010, Vic Freeze is a veteran emcee with a fresh flow who brings the streets and the world together over rugged hip-hop tracks. A genuine lyricist who emits positivity through trial and tribulation but touches everyone with honesty and his "live before you speak" attitude.
