Bio

Born in Oakland California, Vincent “V.T.” Tolan has made a name for himself by bringing a new sound out of the West Side of Oakland. Inspired by Cash Money super producer, Mannie Fresh, V.T. also has family ties in New Orleans, home of Jazz and Blues. After years of writing and composing, he met Traxamillion who would help him as a mentor and a teacher on how to succeed in the music business. He let him know that he "needed to be heard." As a producer, V.T.’s style contains a mixture of jazz, soul, R&B and techno. Several of his tracks or music productions feature live instruments adding a distinct touch to every song. His first radio song, "Code of the Streets" by Dem Hoodstarz featuring V.T. has been one of the most successful Bay Area songs nationwide. V.T. is currently writing and producing songs for Dem Hoodstarz’ next album, Black Friday. He has also produced Electric Love by Netta B, winner of the Bay Area’s Def Jam Star Search, Too Short and the Trunk Boiz, Turf Talk, Jiggsaw, Shady Nate, J-Stylin, Relly Rel and Mr. F.A.B. His signature, “V- V- V -T on the track” can be heard throughout and beyond the Bay Area.

Young Naughdy was born in Oakland, California and was raised in the Acorn Projects of West Oakland. He began focusing on writing poetry at the age of fourteen. Known for his unique standpoint with music, clean image, undeniable talent, and impressive stage presence, rap artist Be-Naiah Williams, also known as “Young Naughdy”, is finding his way to the top of the game through positivism and incredible perseverance. He has performed with Too Short, E-40, Mista Fab, Hieroglyphics and Mac Mall. At the age of seventeen, he met his producer and long time friend, Vincent “V.T.” Tolan. VT directed Naughdy’s talent to cater to a worldwide audience and to aim beyond the boundaries of the hood. He directed his talent towards writing complete songs and producing an album. With only a few months of recording, the determined duo created an album entitled “The Warm Up” released in September 2009, capturing the attention of local promoters and artists here in the Bay Area.
