Third.... Here are Videos & Content from Metropolis Binocular (Von Vargas' Full Length Album) (All Videos except " Look Up and Concrete" were Co-shot &. Edited by Von Vargas)

About Metropolis Binocular (Released 2017)

The latest Album Metropolis Binocular 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.

    About Red Lips (From The Album Metropolis Binocular) For years now, sexual assault/domestic violence awareness has been on my heart, mainly because I've witnessed the act as well as know survivors and victims first hand.

My passion for creating awareness provoked me...and so, I have prepared a short music visual accompanied by my song, titled "Red Lips”. A part of my purpose as a music artist and as an advocate for justice is to use music to speak out and speak up for those who feel like their voice has been silenced. This video was prepared for DV Awareness Month (October 2017) and was used in partnership with a few DV/Sexual Assault Awareness organizations.

Number Seven... This project includes Videos & Content from one of Von's favorite body's of work. 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/

Commentary from Von Vargas on World Famous Lexington Market:

When I was a child I would always be so excited to go to Lexington Market. I know I'm not the only one...especially when u lived blocks up the street from it. Lexington Market is one of the oldest standing markets in the world! This was my way to be proud of my heritage in my hometown. 
Shalom is a crazy one featuring Preme... this one started it all off! One of my favorite lines is "give em milk like I'm Chick Fila's poster Cow" 

Maryland Crabs is a song that's very truthful and honest about Maryland...Maryland Crabs are just not in Md. they are everywhere around the world! Tell me that you ain't never want what another have.!!!! 

Break Bread is a joint featuring J. Johnson...it's one of those funk soul songs spitters will love and ladies will love it too. 

So Cold is one of my favs featuring Ronika...it's turns the whole vibe of the album to something special, and just a lil emotional. 

Rise prod by Skillz is a collab featuring Blesst...its an song about empowerment and conquering regardless of the obstacles etc. Any one can take it and make it their own anthem. 

"Hippodrome" prod. by Banga Bill is another favorite. The Hippodrome years ago was a movie theater where for the first time I saw the movie Purple Rain. A classic movie if u love music.
