Abstract Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop, Rap | Abhi The Nomad Brings the Slaps On ‘LOCK’

Posted by on November 2, 2018

Austin based artist Abhi The Nomad has had one hell of a year.  From releasing his debut album, “Marbled“, in February, to being granted his visa to stay in the US as a working musician, to taking off on his first headlining North American – American Alien Tour, to most recently releasing a string of stand out singles, Abhi The Nomad seems to really just be getting started.

While, “Marbled“, has already become an instant classic, racking up millions of plays and finding support from top tier tastemakers, Abhi The Nomad seems to have switched gears as of late – bringing things back to basics and releasing straight up bangers as the year winds down.  Today, he has just released his latest single, “LOCK“, featuring Foster Cazz & Schama Noel and it is a head knocking, gritty bomb.

Over a self-produced, grungy, electric guitar laden beat, Abhi and friends go in, spitting vicious bars and letting everyone know that there is no stopping them.  Always known to do things to the beat of his own drum, Abhi The Nomad crafts a hard-hitting slapper that brings an undeniable energy and braggadocios vibe, putting critics in their place once and for all.  With a promise of more singles on the horizon and a growing, rabid fanbase at his heels, I have no doubt that 2019 is going to be a huge year for the nomadic one.  Keep it LOCKed.

Rising from St.Louis, Tef Poe uses his words and voice as a tool for music and injustice. Expressing his art and activism, he believes in the value of using his voice to spark change on the local and national level.

Posted by on September 28, 2018

Born and raised on Long Island, Jaeo Draftpick has been honing his skills behind the mic and perfecting his pen game for years.  A hometown favorite and leader of the 51631 movement, Jaeo has been on a roll lately with a string of singles helping to put the island back on the Hip Hop map.

With his most recent single, “Same Gang”, recently hitting the 100K mark on Spotify, Jaeo is back once again with a new tune titled, “Blessings”, on which he takes the opportunity to reflect on everything life has given him.  About the release, Jaeo Says, “Life could always be worse, but I’m alive and breathing. I appreciate all the lessons in life. Counting my blessings because tomorrow’s never promised.”

Via a catchy hook, heavy bars and his signature swag, Jaeo delivers a heavy bop while also adding a bit of inspiration.  Looking back at where is has come from, he can’t help but be thankful for the cash, clothes, cars and women in his life.  At this point, he’s just too #blessed to be stressed.

Rap, Tour | Abhi The Nomad Drops New Single Ahead of Tour

Posted by on August 23, 2018

Indian born, internationally raised producer/MC Abhi The Nomad has been racking up some major numbers in the last couple of years.  With the release of his debut album, “Marbled“, back in February, the project has seen over 10M streams across platforms and continues to grow.  While he may have had to put his ‘Marbled‘ promo on hold to secure his visa, and therefore his future as a working artist in the US, Abhi continued to put in long hours in the studio and he is now ready to close out 2018 in a BIG way.

Now, officially granted status as an ‘Alien of Extraordinary Ability‘, Abhi The Nomad is back with his first official single of the year – and it comes along with a major announcement of his first headlining tour of North America.  Now set to embark on his 14 city ‘American Alien Tour‘ next month, Abhi is back to bring the slaps with his new single, “RUN“.  While the official release doesn’t hit until tomorrow, we are bringing you the heat a day early.

Bringing things back to his roots, Abhi departs from the more Alternative sound of his debut album and gives his OG fans exactly what they were asking for – BARS.  On the self-produced tune, pitched synths, slapping drums and stellar sound design come together to lay the bed for Abhi to go HAM.  With his new visa, and worries of once again getting kicked out of the country a thing of the past, Abhi is hungrier than ever and ready to take his underground flows mainstream.

With a stash of singles ready to go, keep an eye on Abhi The Nomad and make sure you check him live if he is coming to a city near you.  Grab tix & check the dates below.
