Victor Oladipo VO Album Download – After stops in Oklahoma City and Orlando, Victor Oladipo has blossomed into a full-blown NBA superstar on the court with the Indiana Pacers, a mere 50 miles from where he dominated the NCAA scene at Indiana University. With athletes refusing to just “shut up and dribble,” Oladipo prefers to speak out by making music, moonlighting as a burgeoning R&B artist.
Music culture was deep-rooted in Vic’s upbringing, as the Maryland native was exposed to various genres of tunes by his siblings and parents, ranging from country to R&B and hip-hop. “Coming from the Nigerian culture, music is really big. I had a whole variety of music I was listening to and it was definitely impactful and beneficial to my music career,” the 26-year-old tells Billboard. “I started singing when I was 6 years old in the [children’s choir] at church, and I’ve been singing ever since then.”
Oladipo continued to hone his craft throughout high school and college, before deciding to publicly share his art with the world and become the next professional athlete to dabble in the music world. Vic surprised fans and teammates alike with the release of his first single last August, “Song for You,” a dulcet Donny Hathaway cover. Following initial positive feedback on his silky track, the Pacers guard continued to test the waters by delivering his Songs for You EP prior to the 2017 season tipping off in October.
