VVS is an acronym referring to "Very Very Slightly" Included, a way of describing the clarity of a diamond, nearly flawless. When deciding on a rap moniker, that's what Tennessee rapper V.V.S. had on his mind; building a 'flawless' career in the music industry. Born Bj Arnold in Haywood County, Tennessee, V.V.S.' first decided to dabble in the rap game at the urging of a childhood friend. In 2005 he debuted with a local rap trio called "3-Deep". A year later he found success as a solo artist with his song "Mannie Fresh". The popularity of the song led him to release his first independent album entitled "A Star Is Born" in 2007. After receiving a very positive response from the album, V.V.S. launched an 8-city promotional tour and was booked for several performances all over the south. During that time he had the privilege of opening shows for major artists such as Lil Boosie, Slim Thug and Yo Gotti. In 2009, he released his second independent project "Money Machine". Following the blueprint of his influences 3-6 Mafia and Master P, V.V.S. built his own recording studio and learned the ins and outs of audio editing. "I always had a business mind so I bought my own equipment so I wouldn't have to be on a time limit in the studio. I like to cut the middle man out. I wanted to do a mixtape but hosts were charging too much so I learned how to chop up songs just like they did and put out my own mixtape series called Pimp Edition. I hosted every up and coming artist's mixtape from my area." The Pimp Edition mixtape series earned him a Knocdown Entertainment award for Mixtape Artist of the Year.
V.V.S.'goal is to secure a recording contract and make a name for himself in the industry all while continuing to hone his craft. He has accomplished that goal in the state of Tennessee as an audio engineer, ghostwriter and rapper. He is currently a senior at Lambuth University, majoring in Entertainment, Music and Industry.
V.V.S. is currently recording a new project and pushing his brand new single "Polo Man".
