After performing at A3C, USA’s top hiphop festival, Noski’s mind started playing tricks on him just like them Ghetto Boys as rolling up the trees got Rap Supreme’s Noski seeing Tupac, on the 8Pounds exclusive of his single, ‘ Mr. Veli’. When goals start looking distant a wise man once said you can’t let them see you sweat, even after grinding all day (all day). To clear his mind the gemini searches for the aid of fellow gemini’s like , Biggie, and Andre3000. Now seeing through his third eye for clarity, Rap Supreme’s Noski delivers astute rhymes that drift through the forest-like-production of Thovobeats’ who harvests crisp hi-hats, a low fidelity woodwind, and a fresh boom-bap melody. ‘Mr. Veli’ is an ode to Tupac as Noski keeps The Prince, 48 laws, and, the emcee’s influences from fading into memory, Rap Supreme’s debut tape, Supreme x 13, does the same with it’s 90s rap style instrumentals.
You can catch Noski and the rest of Rap Supreme perform more 90s inspired tracks this Saturday at 4OXO, Orlando’s very own ‘pop-up shop’ festival intended to showcase the flourishing art, music, and fashion culture in this beautiful city as well as raise donations for Breast Cancer Month.
