We had the good fortune of connecting with StateGang Vince and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi StateGang, the decisions we make often shape our story in profound ways. What was one of the most difficult decisions you’ve had to make?
Two of my most difficult decision, I ever had to make will be. Making funeral decisions for my dad when he passed. As well as, leaving the streets, and focusing on my music, full time.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
One thing I’m most proud of, is being from Lawton,Ok, and making my way through the Oklahoma City, music scene without a Co-sign. My trail happened organically. Because Not actually being from OKC, gave me the opportunity to be more professional, and business first. Out the gate. As well as, bring a new style to the game. I’ve never owed anybody anything. Never asked for anything. Grinding and staying down and never getting discouraged is how I overcame these challenges. When it’s all sad and done, the world gonna know, that I was “HIM” and I mean that. When you heard me say it on stage.
