South Florida's Van Buren brings melodies to life on Baptized

Get a dose of melodic raps from Florida’s Van Buren

The Sunshine State has proven to be a hotbed of talent, at times, and my latest find is Van Buren. Hailing from Bradenton (a town on Florida’s west coast), he delivers a sound not typical of the South Florida scene focused which people tend to ficus in the Miami/east coast area. He partners with Blank Body on production to create a more experimental and melodic offering titled “Baptized.”

“I grew up writing poems as a kid and that transitioned into rapping and recording song,” he tells Pigeons & Planes over email. ” I always kept to myself in my younger days and was super into fantasy and sci-fi type of stuff instead of sports, so this song kind of stems from that.”
