Singer, songwriter, actor and now CEO of his own label; Veltree Music Group, Bobby V has dominated the music/entertainment field in every way. At such a tender age, Bobby was introduced to music and fell in love with the art of creating his own sound. Being a part of a major R&B youth group back in 1996, known as Mista and then becoming a solo artist not too long after that, Bobby V had experienced the ups and downs within the industry. Nevertheless, his resilience was unmatched and he always came out on top. Bobby V has worked with the likes of Lil Wayne, Plies, Ludacris, Timbaland, and many more. Now he is on a quest to introduce the world to his very own artists, Santos Silva and ZanMan Trippin, as they take on the music scene with the legendary Bobby V by their side.
