The homie V!sual has been known to work with many up and coming artists from the city. He’s taught them the ropes, he’s taught them the business side of music, most importantly he’s given them the opportunity that many have not. With The Ambassador, V!isual decides to bring along some artists and producers that you may or may not have heard of, but according to V!sual’s ear, they’ve got next! The Ambassador has 10 tracks, 16 artists and 7 producers, making V!sual a true “Ambassador” for the local scene. We were privileged to get a preview of the project a few months back and we definitely co-sign this project. Take a listen to The Ambassador below. Once you are done, make sure to support your local artists by purchasing the project HERE!
