”If you appreciate real authentic music, whether Rap, Trap, Hip-Hop, RnB, then you’re basically going to appreciate the BVR. The BVR is not for mainstream artists. I’m usually the sole mainstream artist on the mixtape and it’s a platform for upcoming artists who have worked hard during the year and deserve a spot”, expresses E.L.
”When I was an upcoming artist, someone gave me a platform to showcase my skills and the BVR project is my way of doing the same thing for upcoming artists. I’d also want to thank everyone who’s been holding it down since day one and all the Hip-Hop lovers, so get ready for a great experience”, he added.
The ”BVR” mixtape by E.L is released under the rapper’s imprint V.O. Nation Records.
