Interview with 'Verndolla$'

Verndolla$ is an underground artist hailing from New York, Queens to be exact but he doesn’t sound like your conventional NY artist. Influenced by artists like IDK, Earl sweatshirt, Tyler the Creator & A$AP Rocky Verndolla$ is an artist from Queens, New York with a lot to say. Vern began his career with his LP “August..” detailing his heartbreak after being cheated on in a relationship he took seriously. Vern will show you why it’s a good idea to have him on a song, His bars are always presented with a flow that will make you play the song back. His distinct “Yeah, aye” in between sentences will reel you in from the beginning of a song but by the time you realize you’ll already be a fan. From slow emotional songs to bangers about clothes, wwe wrestlers & the stigma of the hood & what people from the hood often like to take part in to classic boom bap tracks, Vern will give you something catchy with a message deeper than you think.
