Like Gamma Xi Phi itself, hip-hop artist and producer Ess Vee was born and raised in the state of New Jersey. Born in Newark and raised in Irvington, Ess Vee's admirable work ethic and unbridled talent are bringing something old and something new to hip-hop.
Gamma Xi Phi was pleased to interview the talented Baron in September of 2012.
