Question: How did you decide upon the name Vain?
Answer: Originally my name was V.A which meant Verbal Assault, later I added the I.N standing for Is Nasty. So, Vain means Verbal Assault is Nasty.
What projects do you have up?
Answer: Right now we are really trying to break a record in the South.
Question: You are a known public figure/celebrity in New York; do you believe it is hard for you to break out because they are already familiar with you?
Answer: A lot of times it comes down to money. If you don’t have a big enough bank to get that extra push, you will not get in. I have already been accepted. My music is being played in the clubs and on the radio, when I walk through I get the shout outs, I have been featured in magazines. I just need that extra bank to make things happen.
