Vision the Kid is a Milwaukee-born, Minneapolis-based rapper. Collaborating with producer Ryan "Tru" Truax, they've crafted a sound that pays homage to the conscious underground style that Midwestern hip-hop is known for, while making a concerted effort to bring people out to the dance floor.
In 2013, Vision the Kid was voted Best Local Rapper in a poll by Minneapolis publication Vita.mn. In 2014, Tru’s debut instrumental album, Smokers Lounge, earned a glowing review from Minneapolis publication City Pages and inclusion in their Gimme Noise Beattape Vol. 4.
They are readying the release of their second album, Somewhere in a Dark City. Mixing true stories of drug addiction and heart break with tracks of pure, danceable braggadocio, this record will be as much party as it is poetry.
