Name: Vaca

Age: 18

Reppin': New York City

My style and/or skills have been compared to: I like to think of myself as someone that has grown into his own. I've been influenced by all the greats, but at this point, I'm truly being myself and letting the world know it.

I started rapping: It all started when I realized I had a few things to say about life and I made it work on paper. I've been writing since I was very young, so it's hard to say exactly when it all started, but it's safe to say I'm well versed in the art. If you don't know, now you know.

My standout records and/or moments have been: Completing my first mixtape, Going Back Home, was a standout moment for me because I finally got to show a few people that I was here and that I wasn't going anywhere. But with that said, I still have a lot more to go, so I'm hoping I have a few more standout moments to come.

I'm gonna change the game by: If I change the game at all, it will be because I stayed true to myself and influenced others into doing the same. The love for the game is strong, so it'd be nice for people to catch on and lead instead of follow.

I'd like to work with: J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Electronica, Wale, Drake. Plus about thirty more.

My goal in Hip-Hop is: My goal is to play the game to a point where I can one day influence the game. I've studied and done my research; I love rap and what it stands for and one day I hope to be an example of hope for the truth.

I'm gonna be the next: Prince.
