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

(Intro)

Time to gas up the space ship.
Take a little trip out to the cosmos.
See what's up in the stars . . .
flying pass the sun

(Verse)

Peep the;

Transmission, this ain't a technology dream schemes to stack cream and live the american dream . . .

Was in the game plan way back, to when I was a little kid who wanted to whip a candy coated cadillac Escalade, escapades to get paid started capers for paper, shoplifting was my forte then I got caught up, the right place but wrong time, the cops got called up, I was hauled off home, 16 and in high school, I'm tryin to be cool, Vinnie breakin' all the rules . . .

But mama wasn't havin that though, the cash flow went from high to low, probation for a nigga-ro . . .

So things had to change, I had to change a few things, ain't no bling-bling in the cell of a precinct . . .

So my dreams gotta come true, I need a life away from the strife, and chickens steady livin' trife, it ain't a my life's a hustle rhyme, I know you're sick of hearin' it all the time, so here's a different frame of mind . . .

come along if you wanna come, the reward is at the end of the road, where the sun light shines on a pot o' gold

(Chorus)

Space and beyond!
That's where we all gon' go, that's where the dreams they grow
That's where we see what's at the end of the rainbow

Space and beyond!
That's where we will find joy, for every girl and boy, the stars are what I'm reachin for . . .

(Verse)

Now every;

Body wanna be a ruler, and that's cool, but you can't rule a thing if you on a ship of fools . . .

So be about the paper playa, stay on the grind, but you gotta move fast cause you runnin' outta time . . .

And time's movin' fast, life is a game of chance where only the quick can get helly cash . . .

A phrase that I live by, check it out
succeed first, brood later, there ain't no time to cry, cause I rather be young workin' harder than a horse, than being 4-0 years old with nuttin to show . . .

I'm twenty-six, got some hellified rhymes to kick if you listen, you'll learn how I'm doing it . . .

Money motivates me to stay on the grind all the time, gimme a mic and some music, and I'ma rock a rhyme . . .

From the early mornin' hours till the moon's in the sky, got my eyes on the prize while I'm young and alive . . .

'Cause ife ain't a big party, it's all about gettin' paid and making sure you live to see the next day guess I gotta go until my next intro but remember, my name's V Sinizter

(Chorus)

Space and beyond!
That's where we all gon' go, that's where the dreams they grow
That's where we see what's at the end of the rainbow

Space and beyond!
That's where we will find joy, for every girl and boy, the stars are what I'm reachin for . . .

(End)

Space and beyond (repeat)

Time to gas up the space ship.
Finna take a trip through the rings of Saturn.
Through the Horsehead Nebula.
Go pass the moon and beyond.
Cruisin' through the stars . . . dreamin' . . . driftin' away.

Victory Road

(Chorus)

I CAN'T LOSE!!!
I'm on a quest to Atlantis for platinum plaques,
because now's the time

I CAN'T STOP!!!
Till I reach the top and show the world how a young star shines

I WON'T LOSE!!!
I spent too many years hustlin' hard to win,
stayin' on the grind

I WON'T STOP!!!
Till I reach the stars and top the charts,

the VICTORY IS MINE!!!

(Verse)

This is how the;

Struggle begin, ever since I uplifted a pen, since Public Enemy, I've been strugglin' to come up in the industry;

Since Mack Tha Jack'a been spittin' raps and gettin' dap from many different kittens and cats, I been wishin' that it had been me, the best feelin' to see, my brother killin' these peeps, he's still in the streets, I'm willin' to be a really skilled emcee dealin' with many Mill-i-ons, chillin' but the reality was,
he wasn't feelin' me;

In ninety-two, I kinda knew,
my rhymes were new, needed time to show and prove and find the frame of mind to grow and expand,
so me and my homie Dan formed a two man band and with pen in hand, I went home to write,
alone in my room at night, honin' my craft, but the raps I spat weren't tight;

The fight to win was heightened with from writin' with pens and recitin' my rhymes I scribed to my friends

(Chorus)

I CAN'T LOSE!!!
I'm on a quest to Atlantis for platinum plaques,
because now's the time

I CAN'T STOP!!!
Till I reach the top and show the world how a young star shines

I WON'T LOSE!!!
I spent too many years hustlin' hard to win,
stayin' on the grind

I WON'T STOP!!!
Till I reach the stars and top the charts,

the VICTORY IS MINE!!!

(Verse)

This is how the;

Struggle continues, dreamin' of rockin' many venues and Kittens gettin' into what I'm spittin', jockin' me, watchin' V rockin a flock of 'em, boppin' and hoppin ain't no stoppin me toppin' the top of the monopoly, droppin' the hottest product on the industry, since Public Enemy, took a nation of Millions and made a military from militant civilians;

But my daily existance, delays the persistance, it takes to get paid and I hate it so much, that I wish I'd blow up makin' them kids go nuts, tryin' to get up in the club, kittens shakin their butts, with their busts so robust, but I snap out and wake up and cuss, gotta run before I miss the bus, it's ridiculous, got me livid and sick with disgust, but I refuse to lose or give up, I'm about to blow, movin' units out the door, to Atlantis down the road, I'm abouts to go

(Chorus)

I CAN'T LOSE!!!
I'm on a quest to Atlantis for platinum plaques,
because now's the time

I CAN'T STOP!!!
Till I reach the top and show the world how a young star shines

I WON'T LOSE!!!
I spent too many years hustlin' hard to win,
stayin' on the grind

I WON'T STOP!!!
Till I reach the stars and top the charts,

the VICTORY IS MINE!!!

(Verse)

Hopefully the;

Struggle will end, upon my wall is a diamond plaque, this rhymin' cat, is climbin' raps, high and mighty stats, findin' that tryin to align my mind with space and time will produce ten multi-plats till then I'ma still wield this pen with skill, till my kin got real estate in Beverly Hills;

And friends are chillin and Nichole is livin' with me, till V Sinizter's on top of Atlantis screamin' VICTORY . . .

(Chorus)

I CAN'T LOSE!!!
I'm on a quest to Atlantis for platinum plaques,
because now's the time

I CAN'T STOP!!!
Till I reach the top and show the world how a young star shines

I WON'T LOSE!!!
I spent too many years hustlin' hard to win,
stayin' on the grind

I WON'T STOP!!!
Till I reach the stars and top the charts,

VICTORY IS MINE!!!

(Verse)

If you;

Gimme ten Zimas I'ma drink all ten,
I ran in plenty hoes before so let me say it again;

I'm the V to the dash to the S-I-N,
if I wasn't, than why would I say I am;

I'll be damned if this nigga don't rock a show,
drop a flow, got glocks that'll rock ya boat;

Got hoes smokin' my pole like an Optimo,
stoppin' my rise to the top is impossible;

Meinberg's is the spot on the weekend,
where me and a freak we be creepin';

Cause it's time for my shine, man I'm tryin' to get rich, and if my kitten start's trippin' I'ma lose that bitch;

I'm on the grind, nigga like 'you then lost yo' mind',
but lookin at my stopwatch it's about that time;

To G--O, get a four door wide track Pontiac,
hit the black top and meet my homies at the club spot

(Chorus)

Whips sittin' on them dubs,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Kittens strippin' in
them clubs,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Niggas makin' helly g's,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Cause I gotta get paid
everyday of the week!

Sippin' brew with ya crew,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Leave the club after 2,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Kittens in my pontiac,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Two rubbers, one hour and
I'ma be right back!!

(Verse)

I'm on the;

Strip in my whip, fist clinchin' a grip, peepin' kittens fittin' tight shit, tonight's the night shit;

I might hit Captain's Cove, but some fag packed a gat through the door, now they can't play no rap no more;

But it's still time to rhyme for sho', dough I'm gonna collect in stacks by sacks and sit back in my Pontiac;

On the dolo with one hoe, she stroke the gun slow, it's fun though, her tongue so long, it touches her nose;

I'm poised for action in the back of my Pontiac, her wet panties retract, bout to do a few laps;

So I'm wonderin', ponderin' how in the hell can I get in the middle of her ovaries and don't spend no cheese;

Hoe please, V dough go slow like skis in powdery snow, ask my nigga Nitty;

You gotta be worth every penny, I'm spendin' on you and that Remy, when the pennies pay ya tab, you gotta get outta them panties

(Chorus)

Whips sittin' on them dubs,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Kittens strippin' in
them clubs,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Niggas makin' helly g's,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Cause I gotta get paid
everyday of the week!

Sippin' brew with ya crew,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Leave the club after 2,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Kittens in my pontiac,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Two rubbers, one hour and
I'ma be right back!!

(Verse)

When I;

Step up in the club, bouncers give me dap,
showin' Vinnie Sin love, where the party at;

Whoever thought that a scrub, could be so damn fly, ladies love the way I'm cut, that's why they givin' me eyes;

Three Zimas is my drank, when I want to dance, one more for the kitten, that I wanna romance;

Remy Red is my tonic, when I feel homicidal, acid Rap's the style, V Sinizter's simply the title;

Ni--Chole is my daughter, but her mother's a floozy, easy like Eric Wright, givin' up the booty;

Bein' a soldier was my duty, but rap's a lot more fun, I don't pack many pistols, but I cock shotguns;

I can dance just a little, but I bone a lot better,
I wanna stack so much cheese, I end up with a mountain of cheddar;

Gotta kitten pullin' my sleeve, so it's time to go, Vinnie Sin put you on game, that's out da cosmos

(Chorus)

Whips sittin' on them dubs,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Kittens strippin' in
them clubs,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Niggas makin' helly g's,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Cause I gotta get paid
everyday of the week!

Sippin' brew with ya crew,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Leave the club after 2,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Kittens in my pontiac,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Two rubbers, one hour and
I'ma be right back!!

(Chorus)

Whips sittin' on them dubs,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Kittens strippin' in
them clubs,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Niggas makin' helly g's,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Cause I gotta get paid
everyday of the week!

Sippin' brew with ya crew,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Leave the club after 2,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Kittens in my pontiac,
THAT'S OUT DA COSMOS!!
Two rubbers, one hour and
I'ma be right back!!
