Vincent Luviner, better known as Vinnie Paz(formerly known as Ikon the Verbal Hologram), is a Muslim Sicilian American rapper and the lyricist behind the Philadelphia underground hip hop group Jedi Mind Tricks. He is also a part of hip hop supergroup Army of the Pharaohs.
Originally taking the pseudonym of Ikon the Verbal Hologram, he later changed his name to Vinnie Paz (due to a disagreement with Philadelphia battle emcee iCON the Mic King), after the Rhode Island boxer Vinny Paz. Paz originally started rapping with fellow Jedi Mind Tricks member Stoupe in his basement. Paz is known for his raw and gritty lyrical delivery. He is also known for his extensive use of studio punch-ins, seldom recording a verse in one take. His lyrics frequently contain references to religion, war, mythology, conspiracy theories, the paranormal, ufo's, and politics. His more recent albums such as Servants in Heaven Kings in Hell shows a more obvious approach to politics and world issues. This gritty style of Paz became apparent with the release of Violent by Design, and has become progressively more defined since its release. Vinnie Paz has a number of aliases, including Louie Doggs, Vinnie Vicious, The Pazmanian Devil, Pazienza, Frank Vinatra (as told in On the Eve of War with GZA), and Vin Laden. Raised Catholic, Vinnie Paz now practices the Muslim faith, which plays a major role in many of his lyrics. Vinnie is also a Heavy Metal fan, and occasionally uses song titles and band names in JMT tracks and lyrics.
