Little Vic - Each Dawn I Die EP [Orena]Little Vic became involved with music at a young age, laying tracks in the studio with his Uncle Paulie, Big KO, and his cousin John. John who became DJ John John, now works closely with major music forces such as Shadyville Entertainment and is known on the New York music scene for his explosive mix tapes, often featuring tracks and freestyles from Little Vic.

DJ Whoo Kidd, DJ Domination, DJ Woogie, DJ Front and DJ Eclipse have all brought Little Vic's celebrated lyrical style to the streets on their impressive mix tapes.

Hailing from Long Island, Little Vic is ready to redirect rap's focus back on New York. His EP, Each Dawn I Die, features two singles that saw great success on the college radio charts: The Exorcist and Caked Up featuring Kool G Rap.

Caked Up starts with a shot of funk in the beginning and the song grows from there, layering turntable scratches over a raw New York City beat. Little Vic shows off his versatility on this track by blending the dark side of battle rap with a cocky swagger. He rhymes, "Cats are living street dreams / and wake up when they get pinched / if a king exists / peasants biting on my lyrics like dead skin on their finger tips / bring a wrist to slit / or sing a quick verse whistling past the cemetery / Little Vic hearse". Kool G Rap, one of the early legends of New York hip-hip, brings it full circle by bringing back his legendary mafioso lyrical prowess.

The Exorcist is a hard-hitting, no-frills hip-hop track featuring production from DJ Premier. Primo lays down an appropriately minimal beat on the track, emphasizing first and foremost Little Vic's Long Island flow. Conceptually, The Exorcist is equal parts braggadocio and free association. Verses such as, "Marciano punchlines I’ll throw one to test ya chin / waitin' to be blessed again, the exorcist melts tracks down / their necks will spin" showcase his rhythmic ingenuity. About this track Little Vic says, "Preem brought it out of me, now I bring it out of you".

Armed with the release of his long-anticipated follow-up to those singles, Little Vic is proud to release Each Dawn I Die on his own Orena Records.

Each Dawn I Die is in stores now.
