Welcome to BuzzMusic, Vinnin. We're incredibly excited to chat with you about your latest heavy-hitting single, "Top of the Game." What inspired you to write a song that leaves the listeners pumped and with boundless confidence?
"Top Of The Game" was inspired by playing the game basketball. From a young age, I have always been playing basketball and it is the only sport that has enjoyed playing. I put all my feelings and current real-life experiences into my song as well. The song talks about my passion for music and basketball, ignoring all the negativity from my life before worrying about achieving fame.
Did you create the production yourself for "Top of the Game?" Or did you work with any producers along the way?
I found a talented producer named J.Sonii, he was my producer for this track. I found his beats really unique and he caught my attention since he was an underrated producer. Thanks to the internet I was able to connect with him and get the stuff necessary for this record.
Was there a particular message or vibe you wanted to convey within your bars for "Top of the Game?"
I wanted my track: "Top Of The Game" to be a motivational and inspirational track for others. It's the type of song that you would listen to when working out, playing basketball, or gaming. It's just a hype song with a message of: You can do anything, don't listen to anyone else, stay on your grind and the ones that put you down would realize and wouldn't be putting in the work that you are putting in.
How has NBA2K helped bring awareness to your music? Have you found that getting featured on the NBA 2K21 Next-Gen Soundtrack has helped bring more recognition to your music?
Having my track in-game in NBA2K21 has gotten my name already out to millions of people that have the game. Really grateful for this opportunity as not that many artists get this type of opportunity at all. Having my track in-game has gotten me some fans and people that reached out to me from playing the game. Also having the track in their soundtrack playlist as well has been helping me collect streams around the world. I made this record when I was 16 years old, I am extremely proud of this achievement at a young age.
