V. Bozeman is your favorite singer and actress, all in one. Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, V describes herself as your regular, down-to-earth homegirl around the way — only she wants to impact the entire world. You may recognize her as her character Veronika on Fox’ hit television show, Empire, but she’s also been singing her entire life.
Growing up in the church would give V the knowledge she needed to learn how to perform, connecting with people, and reating great music. Most recently, she released her new single “Juicy,” the perfect bop for the summer.
King Ice caught up with V to discuss her jewelry preferences, who had on a burgundy top hat, hoop earrings, and layered necklaces.
I love all the drip you got on. What’s your go-to pieces for jewelry?
I follow this queen @msdmichelle. She makes all my earrings you see me wearing. Right now, these are my favorites. I’ve been wearing these for days and weeks now, I love them. She’s so bomb when it comes to making earrings. Every time she posts an earring, I’m like “I want that!” [laughs] She sends me earrings, they’re so dainty and so custom! My personality, and they’re bomb for the summertime. I like her whole aesthetic. If y’all want some dope earrings and little pieces, @msdmichelle is bomb. She’s all up in my comments and I’ll be all up in hers. You’ll definitely see her.
Desiigner 2015 viral hit “Panda” will forever go down in history as one of the most explosive songs to grace the rap game. Fast forward to 2020, the Brooklyn, New York recently celebrated his 23rd birthday in Malibu (amidst quarantine). Beyond his constant celebration of life, he recently also was freed from his former label, G.O.O.D. Music.
Now, he releases his new single “SURVIVOR,” with a cinematic visual to match. The song itself is a reminder that we will all get through these dark times, no matter what. King Ie,
I see you have your rings on. What kind of watch is that?
Yeah, I’m cool. An AP (watch). I got the diamond bracelets, a little something. I’m not bringing out too much. [laughs]. I have a chain, but I haven’t put it on. I didn’t want to wear it right now. I wear it sometimes, but I just came out the barber chair,
Do you use your watch to tell time?
Nah. [laughs] You dig man. Every time’s the right time for me. Time is sand man, I’m just flowing in it. I don’t really believe in it.
Does T-Pain even need an introduction? The R&B singer-songwriter is best known for sparking a whole autotune movement, unleashing hit after hit after hit. "I'm Sprung", "I'm 'n Luv (Wit a Stripper)", "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')", "Bartender", "Can't Believe It", “Kiss Kiss” featuring Chris Brown are just a few of our favorites.
Fast forward to 2020, T-Pain is living his best life. Quarantine has been his dream come true, revealing he actually hates travelling. His house in Atlanta is a trip in itself, stocked with his own arcade, movie theater, a T-Pain shrine in his hallway of accolades, and even room for his top hats. King Ice caught up with the Nappy Boy Entertainment founder to bring us back one of the most iconic chains in hip-hop history.
Do you still have your iconic chain?
Yeah, it’s somewhere in this house. I have no idea where it is. It’s somewhere in here, I don’t know man. I get drunk and I fuck with it a lot, then it gets put down somewhere in here. I don’t know where it is.
Do you ever wear it out?
Oh no, it’s too heavy. It’s too much. Either I’m at show on stage or I’m drunk out of my mind in the studio and feel like wearing it real quick. [laughs]
