The track was only a taste of what was to come; Vice City represents some of the very best wordplay and creativity in modern-day rap. It's my favorite joint on the album so far. His content is not only real, but there are a bevy of biblical references and wordplay that truly strengthens the flames of the evil existing in the city. There are soft jazz influences with a constant coldness from the percussion. It makes for an interesting dynamic. Anonymuz takes you to dark corners. Stream Vice City in full below.
He's already incredible 2017-03-23T10:27:17Z Comment by I feel you 2017-03-17T22:22:58Z Comment by love this track!. Anonymuz's dark toned album Vice City sits you in the heat of his most intense moral battles. Anonymuz's flow comes with its own head bop to match with the pockets. You get a lot with Vice City. This is music that isn't looking to leave you unscathed. Review Summary: A neon-tinged first hand account of a downward spiral into urban oblivion.
The sound evokes film noir. But when your home becomes a Hell and your Hell is certain, you think. The result is all too familiar for some. Follow me on Twitter: Broward County, Florida is definitely establishing their sound fast. His name may be Anonymuz, but we'll all know who he is soon enough. Many an overzealous youth has come into such a situation with dreams of making it big, and almost all of them are swallowed up before they have time to catch their breath.
All I knew was, there is no God in this city.

He posted numerous dark and dystopian-sounding singles over the break's span that sampled various anime clips and references, carving his already acclaimed sound into a more distinct styling. There is love in the notes, but also tragedy. There is hurt and disappointment in the music.
Anonymuz real name Isaiah Joseph has had somewhat of a slow burn of a career to this point. Soon enough, they fall into the same patterns of drug abuse, gambling and chasing women that they once promised themselves they would be able to handle. A feel for their city is copped quickly through a lyrical harshness or a vibrancy, sometimes a mixture of both. Vice City is a monster of an album, representing in vivid detail what a concoction of sin and naivety tastes like. And while these influences are apparent, Anonymuz has done an incredible job turning them into a sound that is fully his own. A lot of Broward County artists are able to take you street level in their music.
Maybe I just didn't see it that way. Anonymuz drops references to several of his influences, good kid, M. His content combats with the production, not knowing they're allies in a world that can be beat. Pride gets very original though, the blue horns whimper into deep thought. The parties, the drugs, the violence. While he is very highly regarded in the underground scene, the young South Floridan rapper took a two year hiatus from releasing albums to gather himself and maintained a relatively low profile. Vice City is an album that is truly the sum of its parts; each bar, verse and chorus on the album has been tactfully mixed with an equally appropriate atmosphere to make these fourteen tracks come alive.
Vice City's damp production strings along a lot of boiling drums. Anonymuz's flow and cadence has a relaxed projection to cope with the dark meat and the potatoes of Pride, similar to how I heard Q on a few Setbacks songs. And you have your nutty bangers like Cowboy Bebop as well. But that's only a sliver of the tense car ride that is this album. Vice City is broken into three acts, the entire project plays like a self-aware story of one prolonged night while a simultaneous emotional journey is taking place inside him. It isn't the near-perfection of Anonymuz' flow on its own that makes this such an enveloping listen, nor the down-pitched synth beats dripping with sounds of regret and misery.
