Staying true to himself has served him well as he has been able to put himself in unique opportunities and garner many accolades, such as writing “C.N.F” with Nelly, featuring on “Some Ish” with Sir Michael Rocks on his #1 debut album, Banco, and co-producing tracks for Young Money with the producer Rich Skillz.
Master The Best Version of Yourself
Getting to know yourself is one of the most guaranteed ways to get ahead in any career or industry. Vi City is a prime example of an artist that recognized his strengths, his limitations, and utilized them to his full advantage. Self assessment is a hard skill to master, especially as an artist, but once you do you get much farther in life. He once stated:
“Always stay true to self. Stay focused on the goal and above all be straight up and down. Be smart with ya moves and ya bread.”
