Notoriety is a two-man Hip Hop duo consisting of emcees Vital Silveira (Vydle Sinez) and Charles Monfort (Incredible Chuck) who grew up down the street from each other. Vydle and Chuck had been close friends, almost like brothers, since the two were children. Each had come in connection with their passion for music at an early age as the pair had unique and individual talents to showcase from beat boxing to rapping, and even singing.
As the years passed, their friendship grew and abilities escalated; Notoriety soon emerged as an entity in 2009. The pair writes daily, records weekly and all production/recording/mixing/mastering and business takes place in-house, independently.
