Nolan The Ninja – “14K”

blame it on JES7 June 17, 2017

Last year, one of Detroit’s best kept secrets, Nolan the Ninja released his highly-underrated album he[art] which rounded up some of the D’s greatests, including Red Pill, Phat Kat, DJ Soko, Guilty Simpson and more.

This September (9/22), Nolan is looking to up the ante with his next project, YEN on DJ Soko’s Left of Center, with the likes of Royce 5’9″, Black Milk, 14KT, Denmark Vessey, Blu and much, much more joining him on the 17-track affair.

With a few months out before its release, the proficient emcee-producer kicks things off with “14K,” executing a near endless display of powerful, witty lyricism, with dialogue lifted from the 1994 film Fresh thrown in as a motivational tool.

“My only focus point is perseverance / Despite the, smoke & the mirrors, I remain fearless / Cause ain’t no obstacles gon’ hold me back / I’m executing every platform, real n*ggas, clap for him / Only interest of market are those with hardships / Ones who can’t relate to flossing, done took some losses but continue stomping…”

Pre-order YEN on clear 12″ LP or cassette via Fat Beats or on iTunes.
