About Metropolis Binocular

The latest Album Metropolis Binocular (Part 1) by Von Vargas is some of Von's most transparent work to date. It features the woes of childhood in underprivileged environments, losing family members to the trap "Oceans Fade", with honest and heartfelt lyrics.

The album is well balanced with "Thought Provoking" and "Introspective" songs such as "Red Lips", "Cry A Tear", and "One Thing". Expressions that are reminiscent of growing up such as the title song: "My Metropolis" and "Fit Out". Other songs like "Frozen Cupz", "Penned Pola" and "Good Day" pay homage to urban life while helping to change one's outlook on it. "Symphonious Maxim" reveals Von's vital points of life as he declares his thoughts of wanting to give up on his dreams.

All in all Metropolis Binocular is a solid piece of work.

Videos & Content from World Famous Lexington Market (Von Vargas Full Length Album)

About The Album

One of the Oldest Markets in the World now becomes Hip Hop's latest Inspiration.

Von Vargas is the first to title an album after Baltimore's historic downtown market. World Famous Lexington Market. Von's Album World Famous Lexington Market takes an affectionate, but never saccharine look at Vargas' hometown, with tracks like "Maryland Crab" and "Hippodrome", says A Shipley of 'City Paper's Rap Sheet'. When asked "Why the title?" Von answers, "Lexington Market is one of the longest running markets in the world, and that;s huge to me; to live here and have this place right at our disposal...I think that's insane!"
He also states, "people normally go to the market to get their food substance, and since my music is substance too I believe the title fits World Famous Lexington Market."

Von Vargas addresses drug trafficking on the "One Last Trip" track, which is an in depth composition of a young lady describing her last trip before getting caught. The album consist of production from Banga Bill, Skillz, and Von Vargas, as well as features from The Boy Blesst, Ronika, J. Johnson, and Preme. World Famous Lexington Market can be streamed in it's entirety @ https://lexingtonmarket.bandcamp.com/
