When NomiS watched the r movie release of “Les Miserables,” he was immediately inspired to create something that would reflect his love for the story and his love for Hip-Hop.
“My Mom would always show me musicals when I was growing up,” he remembered. “The vast difference in song structure between musical theater and Hip-Hop was something that always kept me from trying to combine the two styles, previously.”
NomiS was able to overcome the challenges of the two styles by borrowing from each one and allowing them to blend. “The incorporation of ‘Les Miserables’ on the album is far more than just sampling. Sampling would have been easier and safer. I wanted to push myself as a producer and MC,” said NomiS of the music.
Pushing himself is exactly what NomiS did, producing every track on the album. He certainly wasn’t afraid to break free from traditional Hip-Hop track structure, either, “Most of the time, I’m not rhyming over the same sequence twice within the same song; and there is not one single 16-bar verse on the whole album.”
The glue that holds together the blend between Hip-Hop and musical theater found on “The Wretched” is the thematic elements of the album. Said NomiS of the overarching themes of the album, “these ideas of justice, grace, and redemption just kept running through my mind when I watched ‘Les Miserables.’ I wanted to make sure that I touched each of them with this project.”
NomiS paid particular attention to the expression of faith in Les Miserables, “issues of faith consume the story of Les Miserables. This made for an amazing connection of expressing the dynamic of man’s shortcoming and God’s perfect grace, which allows man to be redeemed,” he explained.
NomiS has brought all of those themes to the forefront and packaged them in a unique musical experience that will appeal to lovers of Hip-Hop and lovers of “Les Miserables,” even if they’re only familiar with one or the other. Appealing to both groups was intentional on the part of NomiS.
“I wanted to create something that Les Mis fans could enjoy, even if they don’t listen to Hip-Hop; and something that Hip-Hop fans could enjoy, even if they’ve never seen Les Mis,” he said about the appeal of “The Wretched.”
As the follow up to his 2016 critically acclaimed release, THIS TIME AROUND—NEVER FOLD continues the journey while boldly exploring new soundscapes and styles. Heralded by chart-topping singles like “Gotta Live” featuring Jordan Feliz and lead single, “God Flex” featuring Trip Lee—the 17-track project evokes the Texas-bred rapper’s renewed creative vision and commitment to persevere. The album also features appearances by LeCrae, Crowder, 1K Phew, Jarry Manna, Parris Chariz, Sara Reeves and Kam Parker.
Inspired by the pointed declaration of Luke 9:62, which states, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and turns back is fit for the kingdom of God,” NEVER FOLD gives us the Tedashii we know and love: fully transparent and self-aware. He’s a man who’s been tested time and time and again. And while he may have the battle scars to prove he’s been in the trenches, his infectious joy and strength remain intact. “I want to invite others to join me on this journey,” says Tedashii. “Not just to see what God has done, but what He’s doing now. Never Fold is a reminder to never back down.” Read More Here
Never Fold starts with a soft/slow intro track ("There’s a Heaven"), followed by "God Flex," a straight-up banging track that is a perfect start to this album. The track carries some amazing production and fire spitting by both T-Dot and Trip Lee in a song focusing on how big God is. The Texas native says it best, "It's about a time in my life when it felt like I wanted to give up. But the sun came out and it made everything new. God flexed in my moment and he can flex in your moment." The theme of never giving up, finding joy, and being strong at all times is ever present both in this song and throughout the entire album. "Get Out Of My Way" comes next and features another Reach labelmate, Lecrae, and the two combine for their best joint effort since "Dum Dum." The features don't stop there on Never Fold. As the album continues, you will hear the likes of Crowder, 1K Phew, and Jerry Manna - among many others - making for a complete hip hop album. In "Son Of Sam," (drawn from the recent Andy Mineo song) the rapper hits on the back and fourth struggle of trusting God at times, particularly when he remembers losing his son. The track is open, raw, and heartfelt. The follow-up to his lament is "Home," as the rapper cries out to God and just wants to be home again.
Other standout tracks are "Splash 2," a sequel to the equally awesome track from last year with 1K Phew, "Hold Me Down" that carries flaming beats and good spitting, "Full Effect" which is guaranteed to be played at your next house party, and "All in Love" which has me reminiscing about some wonderful 90's R&B. Each track, while unique, is great and worthy to be added to your playlist for this year.
