"One album for every year of college."
Or at least, thats the plan. A Philly born veteran of the New York City Underground, Nyellee 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 Nyellee foolishly vowed to release an album for every corresponding year of college. I don't know why.
But as fate would have it NyelLee became 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 Nyellee filled venues around the East Coast from clubs to college auditoriums.
NyelLee became a God among men. But the pressure was too much, and like Dave Chapelle, he escaped to Africa.
But just before studying abroad in Ghana, he released "S'more" an EP that re-recorded, re-sampled, and remix various un-hip-hop-ish songs from the Flaming Lips, Jack Johnson, and Citizen Cope.
Now he's back and decompressed and ready for his senior year. But fans are baffled, there's no album on the way and everyone's asking
...is this the end?
