FEATURING Gabe ‘Nandez

Gabe 'Nandez—the raw New York rapper—joins us on today's episode. Those that attended our Not A Showcase in October already know 'Nandez's sharp talent. The multi-cultural rapper discusses growing up around the world and the craft of creating music as a bilingual artist. 

Gabe introduces us to his longtime friend and frequent collaborator Ibekelia, as well as the street wise Rochester rapper Rigz. We sample London's young, genre-bending scene with captivating tracks from Osquello, KiLLOWEN, and Isabelle Brown. 

And we tackle the opposite poles of hip-hop through Velvet Negroni's untraditional delivery to Tanner Molique's mainstream sensibilities. 

Gabe also plays his own song, Conneries, from the album Cliquetape
