Feeling a bit camera shy


Virus performs youthful, high energy hip-hop. At 24 years-old, this Chicago-bred emcee is capable of delivering high-caliber, witty wordplay you'd expect from a vet, and when he does so it's a relentless assault of vicious, hard-hitting punchlines. While still honing his craft, the combination of raw talent, potential, and current lyrical prowess make a potent mix for an original style that should not be taken lightly. His flow possesses much of the boastful swagger of his contemporaries, yet his delivery reflects a touch of refinement one could easily associate with the great hip-hop of the early-mid 90s. This is most evident when his vocals are paired with his beat selections, which often sound like modern versions of tracks from that forgotten era. Younger hip-hop fans can appreciate his energy, while older ones can respect his sensibility on the mic. Either way, his enthusiasm and passion for the music can't be denied. One listen and you know: this is who he is, he loves this rap game.
