The Ourtunez Backstage Pass is a weekly series where we introduce an independent artist from Ourtunez. This week, we talked with Limitless about his origins as an artist. You can check him out on our Indie Rap Station on Ourtunez.com
Vincent Valentine, aka Limitless, has a boundless future. He treats his music like any other art form. His artistic nature separates him from other rappers. Limitless expresses his creativity in his calm, intellectual lines that don’t only make your head nod, they give you a look inside the mind of a musician.
Limitless was raised in Saint Paul, MN and grew up in the Midwest as a half white half Vietnamese kid with a dream. He always had a passion for the arts. Some of his other hobbies include photography, drawing, and making youtube videos. “I moved a Las Vegas about a year ago, and am currently writing, producing, and editing my own songs,” he said.
Limitless officially started making music in 2011, “but I have been writing songs, poetry, and rapping/singing since I was very young”. His influences include Snoop Dogg, Bone Thug N Harmony, Ludacris, and Eminem. He also respects a lot of new rappers coming up who are bringing diversity to rap, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, and Tyler, the Creator to name a few.
Limitless understands the importance of sending a message with his music. “I like to send positive messages, but at the same time I mainly want to differentiate myself from everyone else. I am not just another kid trying to rap, its a part of who I am and creating art is my passion,” he said. We can’t wait to see what is in store for this true artist.
