Snak The Ripper has returned in style with a new song called ''Lesson Learned''

Snak The Ripper has returned in style with a new song called ''Lesson Learned''. The music video was directed by Stuey Kubrick and the beat was produced by Vokab. The music video is dark and almost feels post-apocalyptic, showing the Ripper moving through an empty city at night by himself while looking as though he is reflecting deeply on past trials. The visuals are a great match for the musical vibe of the song . Watch Music Video‌

Nolan The Ninja - "LEX" (produced by Ill Tal) +++ Euro Tour Booking Now +++

Hip Hop is an art form and culture that is constantly changing. Mus ically speaking, new technology and the lates t trends have a very real influence on the records releas ed from year to year. It’s easy to get caught up in the pop culture hype machine and triplet trap beats that currently dominate rap. Trends come and go, but the proven elements of Hip Hop mus ic w ill continue to be relevant for years to come. For ins tance, MCs that s pit ferocious bars over dusty, head-s plitting beats w ill never go out of s tyle. Enter Detroit’s Nolan The Ninja and his latest record, YEN. Released on DJ Soko’s imprint, Left of Center (LOC), YEN picks up w here Nolan’s earlier projects left off. Nolan, w ho has been gaining momentum in Detroit and els ewhere, continues to demonstrate his ability to rip a microphone. Underneath Nolan’s agile delivery is an element of s torytelling that is sometimes lost in rap. From Nolan’s rhymes to guest appearances by Royce Da 5’9, Blu, A dd-2, Denmark Vessey and Quelle Chris,

there is no shortage of heavy bars on YEN . W ith stand out production from Black Milk, 14KT, Chanes , Denmark Vessey, Scud One and Nolan hims elf, YEN is 17 tracks of non -stop heat that creates the perfect backdrop for Nolan’s strong delivery . Grow ing up, Nolan and his friends w ere accustomed to status symbols by default. The latest video releas e "Lex" is dedication to that. "W e're older now & realize our full potential to do great things w hile acquiring our childhood statuses in the midst. Triumph." says Nolan.
