Noveliss never met an anime he didn’t like. One-fourth of the group Clear Soul Forces and a hell of a spitter in his own right, he’s packaged his love for all things anime, comics, and video games into boom-bap gold in the past (2013’s Toonami Tsunamis) but really came into his own with this year’s 9-track monster of an EP Mic Swordz.
Shepard Sounds gifts Noveliss with a steady kick-drum on “Brand New,” where Nov threads rhymes about Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Uncle Iroh, Rage Against The Machine, and Gurren Lagan into punchy bars. He and his crew move in silence out in the woods throughout the Richard Taylor directed video, which you can (and should) peep below. We’ve got an interview with the man himself coming next week, so keep it locked!
