The duo of Atlanta-via-Michigan emcee Willie The Kid and Harlem based producer VDon have been frequent collaborators for some time now, releasing a number of records together including “Friends & Money”, “The Food”, “Marina”, “Seafoam”, “Standtall”.
VDon & Willie The Kid decided to join forces once again and went back to the lab to bring you Deutsche Marks, their first joint full-length project. With features from rappers Smoke Dza, Meyhem Lauren & Roc Marciano, this ten track LP from Willie The Kid & VDon is classic Hip-Hop from start to finish.
Willie notably appeared on both DJ Drama albums Gangsta Grillz: The Album and Gangsta Grillz: The Album (Vol. 2) as well as Lil Wayne's Dedication 2 and Dedication 3 mixtapes. He is the younger brother of Wu-Tang Clan affiliate La the Darkman. He released his debut album, Absolute Greatness, in September 2008, and has steadily dropped project after project including The Fly (1, 2 and 3), The Living Daylights with Bronze Nazereth, and The BrainFly with Naledge.
As the son of a Harlem DJ, VDon was destined to make his mark on music, and has amassed an impressive catalog, including handling production for the likes of Smoke DZA, Vado, Trae the Truth, Lloyd Banks, Styles P, Wu Block, Jadakiss, A$AP Rocky and 2 Chainz.
Following the release of their first single off of Deutsche Marks, “24 Hours” featuring Roc Marciano, Willie & VDon also released a music video for “Bleacher Report”.
