Who is VRN Hayes?
Besides being one of the hardest working underground artists that I have personally seen to date, VRN does not hesitate to let the masses know, he's here and he's bringing more than just content to the table.
I followed VRN on Twitter, a few months ago and I was instantly impressed by his work ethic, dropping EP's on us that we deserved.
The first song that I checked out upon meeting on social media was "The Motive" which is such a remarkable song, speaking on the current climate of people living in stress and allowing life to consume them. The production and vibe in itself is a masterpiece with the feminine vocals adlibing his words, slept on is an UNDERSTATEMENT with this song.
After being pleasantly surprised, I had to dig deeper. VRN was especially busy in 2019. Dropping not one but 3 EP's. Still, retaining his dynamic sound and topics that can touch many, im going to start with Vernon.
Playlists have become an interesting trend within the Twitter community and I’m not talking hashtags.
In the last couple of months, users have been using the platform to engage with tweets such as:
I’m going for a road trip, drop me some links.
I need new music, drop your links.
Underground artists have been doing just that, dropping their links and turning regular listeners into playlist curators.
With Spotify taking the playlist crown, it’s many DJ app integrations and now social media internet radio app, “Stationhead”, Curators that have an ear for music can make or break an artist based on its exposure to that playlist or station.
Here, I do things a little differently. One of the dopest things I’ve read about Spotify’s playlists is where you can create Collaborative Playlists.
The playlists below are broken up into Genres. Pick the genre that best suits your ONE song, you add it to the playlist.

It doesn't take much for Delaware native Barz Nice to be labeled as a "Boom Bap Chemist". This emcee and I sat down to discuss his life and passion for the Hip-Hop craft.
After going on a hiatus, Barz and I talked about his thoughts on today's Hip-Hop as well as where he got his start as a second generation artist. Having worked with some greats such as EPMD, Big Daddy Kane and more, his soon to be released EP, Sample Situations has us waiting for the drop.
The first single off this album No Mistakes Allowed shows us exactly why he is a Boom Bap Chemist in every way. He delivers us justice with his overall swag and lyrical skill and leaves you wanting to hear more.
Barz is a master of his craft and intelligently does his part in awakening the masses with his message and overall versatility on different productions.
The DMV blessed us with such an amazing artist and his contribution to the culture is much needed.
