“Ever since I can remember, I’ve lived and breathed music every day and couldn’t imagine my life without it.”
Born Vincent Hernandez of Teaneck, New Jersey. Vendetta spent most of his years in South Florida (Fort Lauderdale and Miami). No stranger to the streets and the legal system his story mirrors the message of hip-hop’s inner city roots. Vendetta has plenty to talk about using intricate rhyme schemes along with his artistic story telling.
Hip-hop’s far reach took hold of him, giving him the confidence to go after his dream. With the guidance of Vernon “Max” Bridges, he engulfed himself with studying the masters — Biggie, 2Pac, Eminem, Nas, Jay Z and countless others before him — crafting lyrics in the tradition of the great storytellers. “I rep 954 and Broward County,” Vendetta says. I rap about true life stories and experiences, the trials and tribulations of trying to make it in an industry refusing to change, and the injustices and disparities that occur every day in society.”
“Everyone said I wouldn’t make it!!!!! But I’m stubborn. I have to prove them all wrong, hence the name VENDETTA” says the new voice of Hip Hop. Working closely with his mentor and producer, Shomari “Sho” Dillon, his aim is to change not only music but also his life. I have been very fortunate to be surrounded by a supportive family and ingenious team.”
“My goal is to connect with my fans no matter what race, religion or culture. All that should ever matter, as a person is that one stays true to oneself and that we are real. Real recognizes Real.”
