Within the last month Nolan The Ninja has definitely made some power moves to further his art and career. Dropping two new joints on his soundcloud page, one featuring the legendary Guilty Simpson, and the other featuring one of Hip-Hop’s freshest new entities, Red Pill. The best part about it all is that the features are secondary, the fact the tracks are dope and the music is good is what is most important here. Music should be about the music first and foremost, rather than the package its wrapped up in which is often the case unfortunately. But, Nolan certainly shows the “Integrity” he has for the game with Guilty and goes rhyme for rhyme with Red Pill of the Ugly Hero gang on “Abyss”. Peep both 5ynoT productions below…
Not only is Nolan putting out dope music as an MC, but also as one of the best with the beats on the scene in the current state of Detroit Hip-Hop. The new video for “Lady In Infrared” from A-Minus & Semi Six is a smooth video and track dedicated to the ladies and is produced by, you guessed it, The Ninja! Peep the video below and make sure to pay attention to Nolan The Ninja.
One of the most original sounding producers out of the Detroit scene continues to push boundaries in the world of Hip-Hop. Hir-O’s newest release from Mellow Orange Music is full of unique instrumental cuts along with some well placed verses from Red Pill, Doss The Artist, and Mic Write of Cold Men Young to mention a few of the dope MC’s on the project.
The title track “Emissary” is cutting edge, raw, and yet soulful work of art that is laced with mellow yet powerful vocals from Jade Lathan. The new project is available now through most digital music outlets and most importantly directly through Mellow Orange’s bandcamp page. Check the new music below and support, also keep a look out for the new Hir-O produced records on Valid’s debut album “Reach High” set to drop April 2015. Welcome back, Hir-O.
