It’s time we introduced North West London’s most talked about rapper to the media. In 2015 his latest mixtape ‘One Foot In’ acquired 15,000 downloads in 14 days, nominations for both the MOBO and GRM Awards and support from the likes of Mike Skinner and Oliver El-Khatib (Beats 1. OVO co-founder).
With plans in 2016 to release the follow up mixtape ‘One Foot Out’ and a management situation with SBTV founder and digital entrepreneur Jamal Edwards MBE, Nines has made his transition from part-time artist to fully fledged rapper and carved out a unique lane for himself as the voice for the streets, speaking for a section of society often unheard and overlooked in Britain today…
“It’s just the real portrayal of someone that’s coming up from the streets. It’s not glamorising it but giving a story of where he’s come from. All of that to hopefully better his life and the people around him.” – Jamal Edwards MBE (SBTV Founder and CEO).
The track features Tigger Da Author and is produced by Show n Prove (Wretch 32, Benny Banks, Lady Leshurr).
“ ‘YAY’ is an unfortunate true story from someone that had been in my life so I had to lay my experience on a track for everyone to hear to hopefully not go down the same road” – Nines.
