Vision the Kid

Vision the Kid & Tru are a rapper/producer duo based in Minneapolis. They are set to release their second full-length album, Somewhere in a Dark City. 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 the fourth volume of their Gimme Noise Beattape.

The duo first saw success with Vision the Kid’s debut album, Lost Summer, which lasted over 10 weeks on the College Media Journal’s Hip-Hop charts, peaking at #12. The debut music video, “Lost Summer,” is featured on MTV.com, along with an MTV artist page. The duo’s most recent Ep, BrokenRadioLove, also appeared in CMJ’s Hip-Hop charts, holding a Top 40 spot for multiple weeks. Their single “Live from the Midwest” has been featured on both MTV’s The Real World and E! Network’s Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.

Somewhere in a Dark City displays the type of growth listeners and critics want to see from artists. It is densely personal, at times vulnerable, but overall an invitingly listenable record. Mixing true stories of drug addiction and heart break with tracks of pure, danceable braggadocio, Vision the Kid & Tru set out to make a Hip-Hop record that sounds as current as it does timeless, as personal as it is universal, and as much party as it is poetry.
