Nolan The Ninja ft. Jaye Prime | ORANGES | Prod. by 5YNOT
Nolan The Ninja has made a name from himself in Detroit, distinguishing himself among some of hip-hop's greatest artists in the area. His delivery is reminiscent of 90s MCs, crafting intricate patterns and clever rhymes. Today he announced his upcoming album with DeadEndHipHop and a new single, Oranges (feat. Jaye Prime). Traditionally, Nolan has been associated with a frenetic energy, his songs overflowing with syllables and style. Now, having matured as an artist, Nolan's new album, SPORTEE, demonstrates his growth in approach. Inspired by a lo-fi renaissance, producer 5YNOT and Nolan The Ninja created the new album with a minimal setup, emphasizing creativity and passion. The album looks at hip-hop from the eyes of a competitor, Nolan a gladiator in the sport of rhyming. Drawing from personal experiences, the MC finds ways to inject humor into the relentless bars. The new album, SPORTEE, is available everywhere on Mello Music Group April 19th. Nolan The Ninja ft. Jaye Prime | ORANGES | Prod. by 5YNOT
