WASHINGTON HEIGHTS FINDS ITS HIP HOP CRED IN WILL VILL AND HIS LEAD SINGLE, “COP SHOT”

Will Vill made a name for himself on the East Coast when he released his controversial first single, “Devils in a Blue Dress”. The single addressed the barrage of police brutality cases taking place in New York at that time. Now, Will is about to follow up that successful single with another thought provoking release, “Cop Shot”.

This young emcee hails from the Washington Heights section of New York City, an area whose talent has yet to be tapped. Through the years, Will Vill has steadily been mastering his craft as an emcee, showcasing his talent through various avenues – whether battling fellow emcees on the block or killing it with his hyped lyrical skills on assorted mixtapes. In the same controversial style as Ice Cube’s “Cop Killer,” “Cop Shot” pushes the envelope by calling out corrupt cops. This hardcore single (release date: January 15th) is just a taste of what to expect from Will’s upcoming album release, “Mangattan”, slated to hit streets in the summer of 2010. In addition to “Cop Shot”, “Mangattan” will feature singles produced by the legendary production team, Sly & Robbie. Dancehall fans will delight in a guest appearance by Cherine Anderson on the single, “Confuzed,” a radio and club friendly joint. A preview to Will’s full length album will be his mixtape release, “Hood World Order,” hitting streets February 1st through Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes.

Signed to the New York based indie label, Barrio Jamz Recordings, “Cop Shot” and “Hood World Order” are just a tantalizing teaser of what you can expect from this Dominican powerhouse in 2010
