Flowing Like The Nyle

Posted in Music Downloads, News, SOBs Radar, Uncategorized on March 4, 2011 by SOBs

A Philly born veteran of the New York City Underground, Nyle has spent the past half-decade on a journey through rap that has acquired a legion of followers who identify with his persona as much as they are entertained by his storytelling. Upon his acceptance to New York University, Nyle would become a staple within New York City’s SinSin Circuit, (one of the city’s most respected collections of rappers) winning the Off-the-Head Game Show Battle, and 2006 Best Freshman MC award.

2007 saw the release of his debut album Frosh. A chronicling of his freshman year at New York University, Frosh quickly became a cult sensation that rose to the top of college charts as Nyle filled venues around the East Coast from clubs to college auditoriums.


Nyle closed out his college career headlining a sold-out concert which featured Hip Hop staples Asher Roth, Kidz In the Hall, 88 Keys, Izza Kizza, and Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg. The following day, Nyle release a music video for his hit cover single ‘Let The Beat Build’, which was immediately proclaimed as one of the year’s most innovative music videos. The video garnered tremendous buzz, and was a featured piece on websites ranging from Gawker to Nah Right to Kanye West’s blog, KanyeUniversecity.

Nyle has translated his growing buzz into performance success. In 2009 Nyle performed at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival alongside legendary acts such as Dead Prez, Black Thought from the Roots and Pharoahe Monch. The following week, he was premiered his new song ‘GangReal’ in a live performance/interview on MTVs ‘It’s On With Alexa Chung.’

Now, a well-respected NYC artist with a steadily growing following, he is set to release his next LP entitled Capstone, later this summer, in conjunction with a collection of video releases.
