Our track of the day today is coming from Carribean, Bronx rapper High Nelson, who’s wavey and intoxicating ‘Sunday’. The up and coming artist is clearly influenced by multiple different sources, and his chilled and laid back rap style is incredibly easy on the ears.
Talking on his influences, in his own words, Nelson explains “My upbringing plays a part in the constant push and pull between right and wrong. There are many contradictions in the way I was raised by my family and the way I learned to survive outside of my household in the Bronx; these concepts live within my music.” Being raised in the Bronx no doubt influenced High Nelson’s sound. His New York state of mind combined with rich Trinidadian roots have organically fused together to create a perfect mesh of raw and authentic rap style, with a touch of easy going calypso swagger.
