Baltimore emcee UllNevaNo and Virginia producer Logic Marselis haven't released a project together since their 2013 full length debut "The Protocol". With a highly extensive catalog from the two, they've always managed to continue to wave the MGNTK brand. Years later, they bring to the masses DUSTIN GRIME which is a conceptual album based on a fictional character that brings the rawness that hip hop fans fiend for. Clocking in at 14 tracks, the duo brings the listener into their world where UllNevaNo shows his range from lyrical dexterity to vivid storytelling over Logic's exceptional production. Put your wallabees on -- the DUSTIN GRIME sound quality is straight from the cassette deck.

When it comes to living our everyday life, positive energy is the key ingredient to get through your day. In the midst of what's happening in the world, whether it's the crime infested news or negative content being posted on social media, the Baltimore and Virginia duo UllNevaNo and Logic Marselis are on a mission to block the nonsense out with "Good Vibes Only". Not only is this a soulful feel good record, it also displays producer Logic Marselis rhyme talents where he spits clever lines like "not trying to go back and forth like suicides". The record is assisted by the strong harmonizing vocals of Baltimore's own Black Assets, who breathes life into the song that leaves you with peace and prosperity. GOOD VIBES ONLY showcases Neva's range and diversity, displaying he can still rap very well while giving a positive message.
The crazy amount of work UllNevaNo and Logic Marselis has always been inspiring and appreciated, with DUSTIN GRIME dropping just around the corner in a few weeks, the acclaimed emcee/producer duo are back with another release titled "Off-White". Similar to Supreme Accessories, UllNevaNo infuses coveted street wear pieces with hip hop, paying homage to the ever so popular Virgil Abloh blending the dust with the luxurious. Neva tramples over Logic Marselis soulful dynamic soundscape that sounds like someone belongs in a straight jacket. Making a bold statement, this is just a prelude to the wordsmiths rhyme display for DUSTIN GRIME.
The last time this tag team dropped a project was THE PROTOCOL in 2013, which introduced to the world Baltimore's UllNevaNo with his unorthodox wordplay and rhyme patterns to match with Norfolk, Virginia residing producer Logic Marselis' Madlib influence rawness. Despite releasing a plethora of solo records throughout 2015-2018, the duo is back with their first single from their upcoming album DUSTIN GRIME.
Titled SUPREME ACCESSORIES, UllNevaNo made this record for those that appreciate dope rhymes, and fly things. This is the type of music that you drive to pretty much. The soulful sample alone sounds like it should be in a blaxploitation film. Logic Marselis provides a raw backdrop that gives UllNevaNo breathing room to provide an audio design of the most coveted street wear brands. UllNevaNo sets a tone where this record needs to be played inside of gold 1991 Lexus ES. This record is making a statement to wack rappers, that he is a different pedigree.
Ullnevano appeared on Rap Is Outta Control Shade 45 this past Sunday on October 14, 2018 to chop it up with DJ Eclipse and DJ Rizz along with Durham artist Mark Steele. Before ending the show off the two emcees spit a few bars to let people know that this isn’t a game. Ullnevano kicks off the cipher first with heavy artillery. Check it out.

Baltimore emcee UllNevaNo and Virginia producer Illien Rosewell have been respectfully building up there catalogs with consistent projects such as SHAMMGOD and BEHOLD. The two collaborators are back with there third and final installment for CONFIDENCE IS EVERYTHING 3. The two artists organically crafted this album In the studio together which makes this piece of work sound like fresh boom bap live instrumentation. Running with the vintage basketball reference which Neva has been known for, "63 in Boston" starts off with a soundbite of Michael Jordan scoring 63 points against the Celtics during his rookie year. At first listen you know something epic is about to happen, weaving thru Illien's signature hard drums and a hook assisted by the producer himself Neva proves his consistency isn't coming to screeching halt anytime soon. Neva displays barbaric madness on the neck snapping "Chain Nets" after he let's wack emcees know that hes the "Humble Bad Guy". Not forgetting his roots that made him the hip hop artist that he is today, Neva pays homage on the soulful "99 Rawkus Logo" with clever lines like "Once the tracks on, I transform to a viscous killer, ghostwriters don't have a leg to stand on like Quentin Miller". CONFIDENCE IS EVERYTHING 3 is 8 records of well structured hip hop is all we need from this duo, and the chemistry shows throughout the album.
Baltimore emcee UllNevaNo and Norfolk, Virginia producer MANHE have released consistent bangers of raw hip hop for purists that truly respects the craft and artform. The duo brings to the masses "SHAMMGOD" a metaphor stating that Neva is nice with the rhymes ,and treats his lyrics similar to God Shammgod's handles by keeping the ball on a string surpassing so many defenders who attempted to guard him. "Check Me Out," is Neva's cover letter for this album. MANHE captures classic nostalgic boom bap vibes as the Baltimore emcee effortlessly boasts how nice he is with the raps. "Fight Klub Pool Table" which has been getting plenty burn on Rap is Outta Control Sirius XM, finds Neva paying homage to the vintage battle league, and showing that he can bring that same energy to the airwaves as a Funk Flex freestyle. "Time Wasted" finds the intricate emcee getting more personal and expanding his versatility touching on topics ranging from the struggles of a local rapper to exposing faults in a love interest relationship. 'SHAMMGOD' is an album filled with layers that has to be decoded after a few listens, and shows drastic growth from the Baltimore emcee.
