Hip-hop has evolved to sound like Top 40 hip-hop everywhere you turn. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Future and listening to the radio because I’m passionate about radio (I worked in the field from 18 until just two months ago). There are many artists who have not transformed into what’s popular and kept grinding with what is now an underground sound. One of those artists is Detroit’s Nolan The Ninja.
While Nolan is getting ready to drop his he[art] project on July 1st, he gives us a new single to get prepared for it. This one is produced by Def Dee and features a verse from Noveliss of Clear Soul Forces. The production is boom-bap and gritty, just like Nolan is known for. There’s an analog feel to all of his music, taking you back in time almost as he raps aggressively to you on the first verse. Listen to Nolan and Noveliss try to achieve prosperity on this one.
