Though you may be new to the name, 199V is far from a newcomer. The 22 year old Trap/R&B artist from Montreal once went by another name until only a couple years ago.Mac was gaining a lot of attention in the Canadian scene, even going on a cross-country tour following the release of his debut album. The hype was cut short though when his closest homie and collaborator Valentino passed away in 2015. Following his loss, V went on a 2 year hiatus leading to a dark place. Now, after rebranding himself under his new moniker 199V and signing with ODDIO Ent., he is ready to take on the scene again, coming back strong with his debut EP ‘twentytwo’ fuelled by life experience, pain and loss.
