On Mike Nova’s latest, “98”, we get a boom bap vibe like the 90s that is sure to give you that early Joey Badass and J. Cole feel. Nova demonstrates his lyrical word play with such lines as “Lets kill the bulls#it like a matador you’re favorite rappers whores who couldn’t cut it like a camel toe” and continues to slang a barrage of clever and witty lines.
Harlem native and rapper Mike Nova has been making music since his late teens , but started to take its serious after his participation in the Clive Davis program at NYU. His musical taste stems from such greats as J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar and Joey Badass.
Around this time last year he dropped his project titled “The 12:40 project ” on Soundcloud, which was a great introduction to the world . The project challenged issues such as social media and being self conscious in tracks like “Black Power Fist”. Songs with straight vibes but provides some aspect into his mental outlook like his single “19th hour” or his playful and loose tracks like “Acid Tab” that shows the bravado of the young emcee all can be found on “The 12:40 Project.
Nova’s music and sound is constantly progressing with each track he drops. From boom bap rap like his newly dropped single 98”, to demonstrating his lyrical consciousness and showing his braggadocios skill nova provides a vibe that is untouchable through his multi rap arsenal and is truly a star in the making.
