“The Cove”, by Long Island MC & Columbia College student Vince Verza, is a smooth laid back track that showcases the 19 year old lyricist’s buttery delivery. The track is an ode to his town’s beachside spot where his friends would gather to pass the time, bump music, and make memories. Inspired by past MCs such as A Tribe Called Quest, as well as contemporaries such as Joey Badass and Pro Era, Verza brings his east coast influences to the windy city.
“The spot the cove was where me and all the homie’s would meet up, post up, smoke and contemplate, it was always peaceful and inspiring being in that nature preserve, the spot is known by everyone in my town as the outdoor party spot, for me it was that but it was also more than that… a place that I think of when I get nostalgic and miss home.”
