“Many Baltimore rappers have sold their mixtapes in Lexington Market, but MC/producer Von Vargas is almost certainly the first to write an album about the historic downtown market. World Famous Lexington Market takes an affectionate but never saccharine look at Vargas’ hometown with tracks like “Maryland Crab” and “Hippodrome,” and features a guest appearance by the Boy Blesst and production from Banga Bill. The album will be released on Oct. 26, but can be streamed now at”

“I just wanted to thank you for being so patient and professional at The Soundry. You were definitely worth the wait! I hear your performance was amazing and that you had the whole room up dancing. I don’t think we have ever had a performer get the whole room dancing. We would love for you to come back again.”
-The Soundry / Jennifer

“Von Vargas is a guy that had been lurking around the Baltimore hip-hop scene for longer than I’d been paying attention to it, and somehow I never really heard his music until this album dropped a couple months ago, and went and interviewed him and learned about his long history in the game. I love these kinds of smart, solid underground rap albums that can only be made with a lot of heart and experience.”
-The City Paper / Al Shipley 

Went to your site, listened to your music, loved it! Very thought provoking,…Best of luck with your career, you are extremely talented, much better than what I see on TV.”
