My man UllNevaNo never seems to stop working. I am a little late posting his full length with [w], but we did have some of the singles here. The full length is one of the best by Neva, IMO. The whole MGNTK movement with Neva, logic marselis and Illien is really fucking solid. Everything they’ve been doing is dope and really interesting.

On “Adventure Rhyme” Neva continues diving deeper into his underground rap referencing, syllable cramming style to great affect, sometimes hitting the listener with stream of conscious wordplay (MGNTK/[Bullet Proof]) and sometimes pretty straight forward storytelling (Press Run/Thank you Cali, the latter of which I get a little shoutout in). It really is UllNevaNo’s confidence that shines through and pulls you in.
And speaking of “confidence,” UllNevaNo and Illien’s release “Confidence is Everything” recently got a re-release through Already Dead Tapes. If you’re into the throwback format, you definitely gotta pick a cassette up.
