"A musical enigma and a man with attitude: Detroit emcee V Sinizter"

" . . . Let me tell you that V Sinizter's self confidence is fully justified: when he touches the mic, the gifted emcee transforms his words into gold. Like a five stars general assembling his army and encouraging his soldiers, V Sinizter claims victory with confidence and attitude. The born soldier can't stop, he won't lose, he won't stop, because the victory he envisions is already his. Those are exactly the words that are expressed in V Sinizter's song, Victory Road. Victory Road is a song that I would rate as inspirational for any person who fights for his/her dreams to come true . . . " - The Eminem Blog

". . . V Sinizter took MC honors at the 2002 Gathering Of The Juggalos, and this night, he and his posse moved the house like a tidal wave of flavorful jams.

Throughout the ages many talented individuals have left their mark upon the world through their incredible talent. From legendary artists to magnificent composers - those who have captured the world’s intrigue through enigmatic, but imaginative works - thoroughly hailed as genius by both fans and critics alike. So what makes this individual able to boldly stake claim to such a hierarchy of legendary artists and composers? The answer is quite simple. Because he is Vinnie Billingsley aka V Sinizter (or simply V to his friends): One Man, One Dream, One Destiny . . . a man who has taken a couple of apples and created hot steaming delicious apple pies with his bare hands.

Anything but a normal child by society's standards, V entered this world of humble beginnings in 1977 in a poverty stricken but loving household. Coming from a family with a deep entrenchment in the music and movie business – mother, Stephanie Smith, a singer in a Rhythm and Blues group who performed on The Ed Sullivan Show and Ted Mack’s Amateur Hour - older brother, Stephen Herd, known as rap artist Mack Tha Jack’a - cousin, the legendary Curtis Mayfield - cousin, gospel vocalist Leatha Warfield, who sang with Sister Rosetta Tharpe - cousin, gospel vocalist Vanessa Bell Armstrong - and cousin, actor Julian Mayfield would prove to be a guiding light for V to continue his family's legacy.

Aspiring to many things as a child, V found solace in video games, comic books and music to escape the harsh realities of daily life. Whilst other kids were merely learning the basics of ABC's, V not only had a full grasp on the structure of grammar, but used it to feed his hungering mind for vast amounts of knowledge. Enrolled in an accelerated school for Arts and Sciences, V was able to mold his gift into something that would carry him forth into the world of music with unequaled distinction.

What started out as merely composing "boss" music soon turned into full scores for his own imaginary games, running from beat 'em ups like "Vigilante Strike" to action-adventure fares such as "Heavensoul" and "Cyber Warlords." Studying the instrumentals from various games such as Super Mario Bros to Gradius soon graduated into full time enjoyment of the scores for his own listening pleasure. With varied influences from the likes of Rap artists Public Enemy and Cypress Hill to Rock acts Korn and Pantera to the original owners of Image Comics to world renown comic book artists Todd McFarlane (whom he's met on his road to music stardom), Jim Lee, Alex Ross, Joe Maduira to famous composers Yuzo Koshiro/Streets of Rage and Nobuo Uematsu/Final Fantasy, V stepped into the Rap game with his arms wide open.

Relying on his video game knowledge and fueled by the lack of financing, V began creating instrumentals on a SONY Playstation gaming console utilizing Codemaster’s MTV Music Generator to use as tracks for his album. After months of tireless work, his first solo debut called MORNING STAR: SINS OF AN ANGEL (2002) was released and received high marks in the music underground for it's deviance from the norm of the genre. The album went beyond expectations, yet his solo career was slow to start. The jolt it would need came in the form of one of the music industry's most hated acts, the Insane Clown Posse and their Psychopathic Records label. V entered and won ‘the MC Contest’ held d
