LISTEN | Montreal's 199V Just Released A Dope EP Titled twenty-two
What are you doing still sleeping on this?
Some may have known him as Mac Vybz, but newcomers might have heard the name 199V nowadays. The 22 year-old artist from Montreal is coming out of a 2-year hiatus with full force, backed by ODDIO Ent. and a generous amount of collaboration with hard-hitters from the underground scene.
"Too Fast" is third single off his latest EP twenty-two, getting the visual treatment to promote the release of his debut EP as 199V. You can watch the colourful video above, shot by MOB & edited by Xavier MC of Vandales.
The idea behind it all revolves mainly around change and dealing with his best friend/music associate's passing as well as a couple other subjects that come with maturing and reality.
Listening to his twenty-two EP in its entirety, it was easily digestible and exciting to say the least. 199V definitely sounds like a seasoned artist, his entire EP gives off a fresh vibe accompanied by that signature Montreal bass provided by Jei Bandit and others like Planet Giza, Dear Lola, jåmvvis, and Rawssi. The 8-track release ranges in a variety of sub-genres including R&B bedroom vibes and hyped up mosh pit-style jams.
199V is truly representing the widespread musical movement that is brewing in Montreal and we couldn't be more proud to present his latest EP.
