"The Next Great MC"
http://www.myspace.com/mixvinsane

Take one cool dude, mix that with a real personality and a passion for getting things hype, and you have a man named Vinsane. Question: Who is Vinsane? Answer: the next great MC. The best part of this story is that he is right in our backyard. He started in Long Islands own Kings Park .The first element of this equation is the love of music. Without love you have no purpose but when you put that love first everything else just seems to fall into place. Vinsane always loved music but he didn’t start his journey intentionally .He attended Suffolk community college and played baseball for them as well. While playing baseball he made a friend who was already a DJ. He started making a name for himself as being a hype man and quickly became one of the sickest around. The best part about being real at what you do is that you don't have to tell anyone because it speaks for its self. Vinsane is a real cool dude with a approachable style that made it easy to see why he was loved so fast. I had the opportunity to sit down with Vinsane and talk about where he will be in the next 5 years and I must say I want to be along for the ride.








So did you grow up on long island?
Yea Kings Park but I lived it Brooklyn first and moved when I was 2.

So what was your muse for music?
It was definitely my parents; they always kept up with the music that was hot at the time.

So how did they react when you told them that being a MC was something you were serious about?
My parents always supported me ….you knows my mom brags about me now…

So how did this all begin?
Well I graduated from high school and went to Suffolk Community College… I played baseball and had a friend who was a DJ

So was being a DJ something you thought about doing?
I started doing parties at stony brook and local bars and parties.

So how did your name start getting up?
Promoters started hearing about me and I made a lot of friends.

I like all kind of music but mostly hip hop

Do you work outside of being an MC?
I work at "Rockabilly" in East North Port, as a barber...But before I worked there I worked in "Ace of Fades" in Bay Shore NY. Both shops play different but great music so I am surrounded by it all day.

No, I'm not

What's your favorite club that you have worked for?
I would say Whitehouse…Vie got to do a lot of great work there

And look out for me on the MTV show called “Silent Library” airing in June.

So what can we look for as far as music goes from you?

I am actually having a mix tape coming out soon called Radio Ruckus vol. 1
