MP3 of the Week: ViceVersah, “Man Vs. Wild”

DOWNLOAD: ViceVersah, "Man Vs. Wild"

Over the past year, ViceVersah has been spotted grinding in New York, outside Boston Phoenix headquarters, and on bills with hardcore street rappers whom he can easily hang with despite, well, being white. This week, after a pair of expertly executed mixtapes, the Greater Boston native turned North American wanderer drops his James and the Giant Beats debut. “Man vs. Wild” attests not only to Vice’s beastly abilities (“I’ll invite you in for dinner but not for your entertainment”) but also to producer the Arcitype’s ability to upgrade contemporary hip-hop while staying true to boom-bap basics. For real rap fans only — hipsters beware. You can catch Vice at Harpers Ferry on November 15 and grab the MP3 here.
