In Radamiz’s newest video for track “V.I.M.”, he isn’t hiding where he’s from — he’s paying homage to it. The song itself is named after a clothing store in New York, where the Brooklyn-based rapper spent a decent amount of time growing up. As he and his friends grace the streets of the city, Radamiz recalls being, “in V.I.M asking for discounts, I was po.'”
Radamiz may be relatively new on the hip-hop scene (he’s the latest signing to Pay Day Records), but he’s already been endorsed by some big names; he’s opened for both Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Ferg. However, the 25-year-old rapper has been perfecting his craft since he was just 12, when he would rap outside the market he packed groceries for.
He hasn’t stopped grinding since then; before being signed to Payday, Radamiz independently created his first album Writeous, a suprisingly sonically pleasing first work. If that project is indicative of what this young man is capable of, he’s definitely someone to keep an eye on.
