Tell us your real names, country of birth, and childhood experience.
Robert Thomas, United States, 10-8-93.
I had a basic childhood, I grew up in the streets of Detroit, it was a rough area but I never let it define who I was.
Tell us about your music career, band name, musical background, experience, and skills.
Well so far in my music career I have been working on my craft and trying to make a name for myself. I use my birth name because when I get plaques I want to see my name on them. I have an extensive musical background because I grew up always hearing my mom listen to many different genres and I believe that rubbed off on me. I am a writer and producer. I mainly make Hip-hop, but I can also produce music in other genres as well.
Tell us about your genre, concept, and idea behind your music video and the song.
I am a Hip-hop artist. This song is the title track to my album “Vicarious Visions”; it’s about living vicariously through someone, and wishing you live the life they live.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew, or music video director, how the song was recorded, and how the music video was shot.
