Vince Bryant in Iraq Writing Lyrics After 9/11

Vince Bryant in Iraq Writing Lyrics After 9/11

Texas – September 11, 2011 – Effective Immediately – BreakIt! Distribution is proud to announce a new signing with Vince Bryant

BreakIt! Distribution is proud to announce its signing of Vince Bryant. Bryant has proven to remain true to Hip Hop as well as his country, serving 2 terms in Iraq preceding the tragedies of 9/11. It is only fitting that he embark upon another war, the Hip Hop Revolution, on the same day that he was boarding a flight to Camp Pendleton, when tragedy struck America’s peace and infrastructure on a mass level to engage in Marine Combat Training for the battle to come.

Some decide at some point in their lives, they have a love for music some decide they have a talent for music. Some, such as Vince Bryant are chosen for the music industry, to lead a culture — born and delivered into it like a breech baby feet first, landing firmly on the ground.  On November 20th, Leo and Lilla Bryant birthed the most spiritual MC into a strange land to represent as the chosen. Bryant is presently the most versatile artist in the Houston area — acting as a vocalist, song-writer, producer and lyricist, he has the ability to sing and rap comparably. Developing his drive and talent in the house of the Lord at the age of only 5 years old, Bryant was mesmerized and intrigued by the sound of his own voice, realizing he was blessed with a natural gift of music. He ventured and explored various genres and styles of music to test his skills. In 1985, Bryant took his career to another level, creating his own style of Hip Hop inspired by some of the most successful pioneers in the industry such as Whodini, LL Cool J, KRS1, Rakim and Public Enemy. Already established as a well-known producer himself, Bryant encountered producer Jeffrey Sadik McNeil in 2002. After their meeting the two inspired a major catalog of songs together blessed by the instant connection of their talents. Bryant’s inexorable rhymes and Sadik’s impervious beats cultivated a style of Hip Hop never delved upon in the community and proved to be intergalactic in reach.

In 1998, Vince Bryant was the first North-side artist to be recognized as a professional artist from the North-side, on DJ Screws 1998 mixtape release Outlaws. During a time when North-side and South-side Houston were not showing love, unless regionally, this was a huge accomplishment and solidified the beginnings of peace amongst the feuding sides of town. In 1999 Bryant a.k.a. the Bishop, at the time, began performing in the Houston area gaining notoriety throughout and today is one of the greatest underground artists in Houston.

Bryant released his first mixtape in 2005, titled, “Interview With A Veteran” while serving in the United States Marine Corps in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom soon to be followed by his debut album titled “Sadik McNeil Presents: Vince Bryant’s Greatest Hits Vol. VII.” Properly noted Sergeant Bryant, Bryant’s background as a U.S. Marine Combat Veteran, lyricist in the music industry, and a juvenile detention center drill instructor has culminated a diverse partnership in the vision to make drastic changes in the music industry and communities world-wide. His battle overseas to afford a country privileges and freedom, we at times take for granted, has never ended. He is now fighting a realistic battle right in the US to reach youth through the most miraculous influence known to them…  MUSIC!

BEHOLD I RETURN The Resurrection of Vince Bryant  — Americas chosen! The wait is now OVER!

Vince Bryant Unplugged

Vince Bryant Unplugged

Walking into Houston’s Club Curve for a Friday evening hip hop show, one would expect the typical underground rap scene. Instead you walk into an elegant, classy setting, climbing stairs to reach Vince Bryant’s Unplugged performance and find yourself in the midst of sexiness. The tone was clearly set, live band, stylish contemporary décor, lit therapeutic candles, Vince Bryant’s specially requested professional culinary vegetarian cuisine and a room full of true hip hop supporters.

Lining the stage you see the four-piece band, background singers, dimmed lighting just at the forefront of two military issued U.S. Marine uniforms worn by former combat veteran and music hip hop lyricist, Vince Bryant. With clear view of the setting, the ambiance, and the people, I could see the amazement and wonder on the faces of the people on what to expect from this show. The words of the guests were ringing in the air, “he really did this” and “I must take a page from his book on this one.”

Suddenly you hear a U.S. Marine recruitment commercial blaring from the speakers, images flashing on the bar’s flat screen, an iconic voice speaking introductions, and the crowd in search of the voice yet not finding the speaker – knowing that the voice they are hearing is that of Vince Bryant. Suddenly taking a slow purposed stride thru the crowd appears a figure hooded and draped in a Marine Corp. jacket and black fashioned jeans. You can’t help but notice the figure isn’t wearing shoes. Even amongst the darkness, his bare dark socks stand out as he continues his stride to the stage. Mounting the stage, what becomes more apparent are the high top black tennis shoes that lay before him. Suddenly he eases his feet into each shoe, signifying that upon this stage, this day I have taken my rightful place, now walking in the embodiment of the purpose for which I was birthed. The words rang clear and the understanding of the title of his album was solidified. Behold I Return… The Resurrection of Vince Bryant. The stage, the props, Vince Bryant’s purposed walk to the stage all gave speech to that title.

Opening with his new project introduction “I Am The One” the message only got louder. I heard these words come from Vince Bryant – allowing me to understand the mind of a lyricist and culminating the feel that I grasped from the moment I stepped into the building – and they resonated with me in a profound way. He spoke, “Chosen to be the best man for the fans… I’m trying to rap in a strange land with strange people… I’m lethal.” While those words have a biblical foundation, they also signify a combat veteran who left his home to fight for the freedoms of another country to return home, still a lyricist, just to find himself engulfed in an estranged industry.

One has to realize while he was fighting in Iraq, a hip hop nation was dying and Houston was slowly becoming the slump that it had been dubbed… “the dirty south.” Back to reclaim the game and place Houston back on the map of true hip hop and music art form, Vince Bryant put on a performance that will echo in the halls of Club Curve for years to come. What we all witnessed was an actual performance much deserving of the main stage!

No longer will I walk into a “rap show” or hip hop show and accept an artist rapping over a CD of their own lyrics. Every artist in Houston has been called out to step up their performance, majorly. For $10, I walked into a gallery of sexiness, exquisite eating, live band and a high caliber performance by Vince Bryant. I have not been in a hip hop scene such as this one in many years. It is great to see that an artist of Vince Bryant’s caliber still believes in the art form and the showmanship of a performance. It was obvious he is well-versed in commanding the crowd, his band, his own performance and even the videographers as he performs.

Not only has Houston been waiting on the return of Vince Bryant, the resurrection of Vince Bryant will also prove to be the resurrection of the hip hop scene as we know it across the world.

OK…. with all of the talk that’s going on about the beef between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim… do you think Kim handed Nicki her ass on this track? And uuuuuuuh check that pose… is that not another bad ass Kim Pose… I wonder if Nicki will try to do that one too or has she learned her lesson…. Nicki should become a vegetarian because she doesn’t digest BEEF very well.

Take a listen…. YOU TELL ME!



I recently read a Facebook post written by Jarrod Mr. I Am Entertainment Dixon about the use of copyrighted materials for the production of mixtapes.  I must admit it’s one of those posts that make you think. Do I use or do I not use another person’s track or sample, for that matter, to push my career?

Mr. I am Entertainment lends these words of advice:

Aye Up & Coming Artists: I am asking you to please chill with all of the Mixtapes. While you are out here jacking for beats, here are two words you’ve probably never heard before – COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT! When you use someone else’s material, whether it’s a beat, punch line, hook, or snippet of an artist, you are responsible for getting clearance/permission first and foremost. If you do not obtain the ‘right to use’ from the artist, producer(s), and/or label, you will be subject to Federal Prosecution under the Copyright laws. These individuals may choose to sue you for revenue and future royalties, as well as any money made and ‘damages’. This one act has the power to destroy your foundation before you ever finish laying it. Mixtapes have their place, but right now the market & game are OVER- SATURATED with them!! Let’s get back to making HOTT albums with HOTT SINGLES! If you want to do a mixtape, please for your sake, use your own beats! Besides, you’re attempting to get exposure for your production, showcase your rhyming skills & musical abilities. That’s not possible to do when you’re “borrowing” instrumentals.

When you have hot producers such as Jeffrey Sadik “The BEAsTMASTER – BEAsTBYSADIK” McNeil of Soulmath Entertainment and Davion “DBottz” Botts of Bottzworld Productions creating some of the hottest hits of this century, there really is no need to jump on someone else’s track. I personally know that Sadik has been working with lyrical giants such as Vince Bryant, ESG, REL the Chosen, Rap Reform Party and upcoming artists such as Buddah of Drank City Entertainment and Me La the Star.  Both of these gentlemen have impressive resumes. DBottz has worked with artists such as Mya, Scarface, Lil KeKe, Trae, Vince Bryant, C-Moe of the Narrators and Just Brittany – just to name a few. Serious artists, ready to take your careers to the next level, I would reach out to producers such as Sadik and DBottz.

As a suggestion, if you are leasing tracks or purchasing exclusive tracks from online producers, make sure you get the proper paperwork and clearances from them.

This site was not meant to provide or offer any legal advice; if you have any doubts on the use of copyrighted materials, please refer to the Copyright Infringement Laws (freely posted online – do a basic search) or seek the legal advice of an attorney.
