  3. This is good music right here. You can hear the heart he puts into all of his tracks. Definitely check him out. The 702’s next big musician.

  4. I grew up with this kid right n we have loved music since then I have seen him grow to the real mc that he is today. Keep it going brotha let the whole world know what time it is because I want to see you change the world even if 1 city at a time.
    Ya boy Robby P.

  5. Good job its nice to see people trying so hard to make a difference and write meaningful lyrics in a time where the industry values other things more than the message you’re putting out. keep tryin you’ll achieve your dream 🙂

  6. Most hip hop artists today are more worried about the main stream fame, and less worried about the heart and messages they put out into this world. This young man’s music holds onto the true meaning of hip hop at its best. Hold onto your values and keep going strong, you have a lot to offer to the music industry! I wish the the best of luck.

  7. Hell yeah you grindingand its going to pay off! Its awesome to see this I’m excited for more music from you. Keep doing exactly what you’re doing and the right people will hear you!!

  8. I want to start by saying I have heard many mc s mainstream and underground but none like double v. His music is catchy and keeps you wanting more, listening to his rap now goes hard AF…

  9. What I respect and can appreciate about Double V and their music, is the genuine raw emotion and depth you not only hear, but can also feel whenever you listen to their music. Double V takes a different approach on the hip hop/rap music scene with their authentic sound, relatable lyrics and a ridiculously sick flow that only confirms Double V definitely has skills, turning each track into a masterpiece that takes you on a personal journey into the creative world of Double V. Once you arrive there, you realize that many of the things you have struggled with or are still struggling with in your life, are never things you were the only one that had to go through. There’s healing in knowing that you’re not singled out or alone when struggling with things that life throws at you. Double V shows through their music that everybody is somebody and no matter what kind of obstacles or adversaries you’re faced with, you can rise above it and overcome it. It’s inspiring to see Ian Van Vleck turn his pain and frustration from life’s hardships, such as losing his older brother that he looked up to, and channelling his emotions from that tragedy into this incredible talent that is a force to be reckoned with! All seriousness aside, it’s no secret that Double V knows how to have a good time too. Much of Double V’s music is filled with fun, feel good songs that turn any get together or gathering into something memorable. If you just feel like going solo, you can enjoy their music just cruising or even while you’re just chillin at home. There’s definitely always something for everyone. Anytime Double V performs live, it’s full of energy and excitement, everybody always has a good time. Ian is always focused, dedicated, on top of his game, never fails, always delivers and you know you just got to experience something very special and epic. So to Double V, I salute!

  10. I have know Ian for over 8 years and still going strong. Ian has always been an insperatianal spirit from day one. He has always had away with words and the fact he’s now putting it to work through the mic/ music for the world to hear will be a blessing. When he flows he pulls every aspect of life that he can. He knows just what say and how to say it not just touching ones heart but there emotions that to me is how an artist is born.

    Keep up the hard work bro.

  11. Ian is one of the most talented person I know! He has so much love and passion for what he does. You have 110% of my support every step of the way! Xoxo

  14. Holdin it down for vegas its nice to see someone from the city of sin spit real lyrics keep up the hard work n good luck fam

  15. The rap game doesn’t have too many people who have been born and raised in Vegas, and Vegas is the shit so we need more people reppin the 702! Double V is the best person for that job. He’s real, people can relate to his music and he’s just an overall good, chill dude. I’m proud of him and know he’s gonna make it far!! keep up the good work Ian!! you got this

  16. I’ll start off by saying, Ian is a young talented artist with incredible lyrics. Lyrics that main stream artist can’t come up with. One of my favorite personal tracks is “my addiction” that song is straight from the heart and if you personally know Ian he only writes what he lives. Ian will be on top one day just with time and patience and Chris is going to be there watching. R.I.P. Chris Ryan one love

  17. Big ups for Double V, raising the bar for local indie artists, honing his craft, and representing the community. Double V serves an inspiration for other indie artists in the pursuit of their dream. #powerup #purenergy

  19. I have watched Ian grow as an artist since the beginning. I grew up with his brother and when he passed away, Ian became a brother to me. I am astonished with how his music has progressed. Its so dope and inspiring, I know he will change the scene out here. I have had the honor of making a couple songs with him and am just glad to be part of the movement. Ian you are always and forever my brother.
