Classical musician turned hip hop producer, Michael Vincent Waller, returns with another entry into his budding catalogue. This latest effort, titled “Oscar,” sees the NYU grad team with frequent collaborator and Good Music artist, Valee. Since dropping his debut project, CLASSIC$, in November, 2021, MVW has not let up. “Oscar” is his one of several singles from the classical producer in anticipation for his second album. His rollout includes the Matt Ox assisted “Check In,” a collaboration with Desiigner, as well as a feature from Detroit rapper, Babyface Ray.
On “Oscar,” MVW’s minimal expressionist style meshes with Valee’s laidback delivery, as he flows his way onto the track. While MVW’s production is laced with his aristocratic sound, Valee juxtaposes it with his own brand of luxury as he raps about the glamours of living the “Oscar” lifestyle.
Yea, but that Mercedez Benz much better for my posture Bad B**** with me, Actress no Oscar.
Valee’s unique set of flows and beat selection have helped him establish a niche fanbase in the luxury rap scene, yet his collaborations with MVW have seen the Chicago native find his perfect pocket. MVW’s relaxed production and Valee’s easygoing style of rap go hand-in-hand. On “Oscar” he rhymes about his cars, trips to luxurious fashion houses and his bank account, all with a devil- may-care attitude. His style isn’t forceful yet makes it mark.
Yeah, definitely noticed that. It happened fast. It started happening, then it happened fast. More and more people. But I guess I’m happy that people noticed it. I didn’t have to call it out.– Valee on his flows being imitated
