As often does, from deep struggle comes great art.
This holds true with Corey Writes. Growing up in Uniacke Square, one of the roughest neighborhoods in the East Coast, Corey struggled with adversity from the moment he left his home. As his world became darker and more dangerous, Corey began rapping and spitting rhymes to vent some of his frustration. With the encouragement of local producers and rappers, Corey released his first mixtape “In It 2 Win It” under the name of Vinny Deniroz. It was just after this time that Corey’s personal life took a turn for the worse. Deep pain and long periods of self reflection followed and from this struggle came the gripping and emotionally raw lyrics of “Appreciate the Wait”, Corey’s second mixtape.
