This February's #ArtistOnFire is 22-year-old hip-hop artist Vegas.
Vegas is currently a senior at the University of Iowa studying International Studies with a double minor in Latin American Studies and Psychology and also working on his writer's certificate. We talked about the origins of his name "Vegas", names he passed on before settling on his current moniker, how getting clowned on in his yearbook inspired him to become a much better MC, his ideal breakfast and rediscovering Michael Jackson. Listen to his single "SZN" below the interview. "SZN" will be featured in the After Hours Mix at midnight on Friday Nights with DJ NYJ and Saturday Nights with DJ Commando.
