Rising star, Villz has dropped his five-song EP, ‘The Vaccine’. Throughout this project, Villz exhibits his incredible storytelling by sharing his life experiences based on the gritty street lifestyle. Villz storytelling ability is why he’s considered one of the realist artists in the UK. Him yielding these accounts enables his fanbase to relate to his lyrics, which builds a bond between Villz and his followers. Rilly Rilz is the only artist featuring on ‘The Vaccine’, Rilz leaves a mark on this project as he lands a splendid verse on the song he features on, ‘Yea Yea’.
The project starts with the introduction track, ‘The Truth’. In this song, Villz gives an overview of his life where he speaks on his past lifestyle involving conflict with his opps, prison, and trapping. Another aspect of this tune highlights his growth as a person. Villz asserts in his lyrics that he has stepped away from his criminal ways as he’s no longer active on the roads, which discloses his maturity. The music producer phenomenally produced an instrumental that enables the listener to relax and reflect on Villz’s great lyrics. The second song,’Die Young’, exhibits the versatility of Villz as he switches from rapping and undertakes a melodic singing style. His euphonious flow corresponds magnificently with the production as it creates a poignant vibe for the track. ‘Die Young’ focuses on Villz reflecting on the negative consequences of being involved in the streets, such as being at risk if you don’t strike first, the good dying young, real ones sentenced to prison, and the roads consuming him as a person.
The following track, ‘In My Bag’ showcase Villz shying away from his sad disposition. Villz still raps about the unlawful lifestyle. However, the production of this song differs as it doesn’t set an upsetting, emotional mood. ‘Yea Yea’ (featuring Rilly Rilz) follows up with a different spirit to the first two songs. Villz doesn’t dwell on the road lifestyle. Instead, he and Rilly Rilz, in their separate verses, focus on rapping on their relationships with their women. The song’s production set a cheery, happier ambience, unlike the first two songs in this EP. Finally, Villz ends the EP on a high note with his intriguing storytelling. The East London rapper unveils his regret for the past as he reminisces on various events that occurred at different life stages. One factor that stood out for ‘Outside’ is how Villz started the song rapping then replaced it with his melodic singing style. The change in his flow reveals his anger substituting into sorrow because he feels apologetic for the painful past.
Villz throughout, ‘The Vaccine’, has manifested his ability in creating a phenomenal body of work. Villz’s storytelling is impressive to absorb because it’s relatable and lyrically fantastic. Hopefully, this can be the start to Villz receiving more acknowledgement for the talents he has to offer to the UK music scene.
