The rapper and songwriter known as La ‘ Vega has released her latest official album, “Best of La ‘ Vega (2014).” The album contains seven original La ‘ Vega songs for an approximate total listening time of 25 minutes, making for a comprehensive introduction to this rising star of the hip-hop underground for those not yet acquainted with her uniquely powerful style and sound. It has been released on the MVB Entertainment Music Group LLC independent record label. Prefaced by single releases earlier this season such as “Tipsy” and “Nappy,” her “Best of La ‘ Vega (2014)” album is sure to become the definitive La ‘ Vega record for fans old and new alike.
La ‘ Vega has listed as her main artistic inspirations Nicki Minaj, Nitti Scott, MC, Lil’ Kim and Foxy Brown, all of whom hail from New York City. But the rapper’s own style is grittier and closer to the heart of hip hop than any of the above with the possible exception of Lil’ Kim, with whose urban poetry La ‘ Vega’s lines and rhymes share an East-Coast edge that’s sharper than that of Minaj, Scott, or even Brown.
Commenting on her new album, La ‘ Vega writes, “This is my second ‘Best of’ compilation mixtape. It’s a collection of my most popular songs from 2014, the most purchased, streamed, and blogged about songs that were released in 2014. Because it’s a compilation, this mixtape has a variety of songs and vibes to it.”
La ‘ Vega’s first such comp appeared in March of 2014, titled, “I’m Here.” That record was also published under the MVBEMG label and is still available online containing nine songs from her best material of 2013. Yet as popular and successful as that first album has proven, tracks from her new EP such as “They Ain’t Like Me,” “Pray for Me” and “Wake the Neighbors Up” are certain to grip a whole new wave of avid fans for this Dominican diva from the Bronx.
“Best of La ‘ Vega (2014)” is available for listening and download online worldwide.
