Following 2022’s Hourly Profit and spearheaded by single “Clinton Cash,” Virginia’s own Krown Vic delivers a new 13-track album titled Street PHD. Once again tapping in-house instrumentalist, Garso Dio’s additional production contributions come compliments of Wright Ave, AO Beats, Millidaengineer, J Dubb, Kidd Slopes, KellzMadeIt, Black Ken, FutureWizard, and Hocus.
In a press statement detailing the inspiration behind the fresh body of work, Vic reveals:
“This project came together on its own. Not only were fans craving new music, but I also noticed my unique brand of music has been missing from rotation since I dropped Hourly Profit last year. I’m always recording, so I just sporadically began going through the thousands of songs I have on my hard drive and with the help of my team, we curated a really dope piece of art.”
Krown Vic is a DMV-based rapper who, alongside in-house producer Garso Dio, combines Hip-Hop beats and witty wordplay with a Trap-Punk twist. Though he stays true to his lane of street storytelling, K.V.’s lyrics double as a cautionary tale to the youth about how making the wrong decisions can derail you from personal growth. As an adolescent, he admired heavy-weight entertainers like Eminem and Michael Jackson, who directly influenced his sonic stylings.
After touring the West Coast and Florida with Lil Pump, D Savage, and Joey Fatts, Vic regularly performs at local Washington D.C. venues Eden, Griffin, and Rose Bar. He has also shared the stage with Billboard chart-topping artists Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert, and DRAM.
