With a collection of wigs that would make Kylie Jenner’s closet look amateur, a penchant for fur shoes and booty-hugging sweatpants, his over-the-top glam style has become a signature that catapulted him to internet stardom. Aside from his looks, his talent as a hairstylist and wig maker for notable wig-heads like Cardi B, Joseline and Marlo Hampton has solidified his space in Black Hollywood. Now, though, Cliff Vmir has his sights on something even more outrageous. –BET.com


Coming from Wilmington, Delaware also representing Philadelphia, and South Jersey, Cliff Vmir has bars for days. From his debut show on BET’s Wig Out, (over 30 million viewers), the show chronicled Cliff in the very beginning stages, as he was slowly exiting the hair industry to transition into his rap career. His first single, “Pink City,” was released late 2018. But if you let Cliff tell it, that was just the beginning, and he has improved so much with his delivery and bars. He has performed at so many festivals such as SXSW, ATL Hip Hop Day, ATL Pride, Bronner Brothers and many more. To date, Cliff’s most memorable performance was when he opened up at Philly’s 2019 “Powerhouse,” with headlining artists such as Migos, Megan Thee Stallion, Meek Mil, Lil Baby, Da Baby, Jeezy and more. Although all of his Cliff’s 2019 was filled with rehearsals, artist development, and vocal training, he is now ready to conquer it all by continuing to produce hit songs, music videos, and not to mention, his captivating personality. 2020 Hip Hop, make room for Cliff Vmir, because he’s coming for the number one spot.

Interview: Jacob Underwood Talks O-Town Reunion | Touring | New Music | & My 2k Tour | & More w/ @MFWERadio

Y77A9698 - Version 7

In 1999, ABC began airing one of the first reality shows in major network history, “Making the Band”, which chronicled the formation and rise to success of the boy band, O-Town. The public tuned in to watch as Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood, Erik-Michael Estrada, Ashley Parker Angel, & Dan Miller signed with Clive Davis’ J Records, released the #1 singles “Liquid Dreams” and “All or Nothing”, and achieved platinum success with their debut album. Despite their success, the band broke up in 2004 both to escape an unfair record contract and to pursue individual endeavors.

After a crash course in the entertainment industry in their early twenties, the guys have enjoyed branching off into different facets of the entertainment business. Their first experience left them with a desire to become more educated, seeing first hand how incredibly complicated (and sometimes corrupt) the industry can be. And now, after 10 years apart, Trevor, Jacob, Erik, and Dan are reuniting as friends with a renewed passion for making music together again. “This one’s for the fans and everyone who supported us from the beginning.” – O-Town
