Lord Nez is the embodiment of the classic Queens ethos – raw, honest intricate lyrics over beats that sound like they were literally made in a QU gutter at 3 am to the flashy, bright beats that maintains universal appeal without the sellout factor, proof that it can be done. From working for Russell Simmons to rhyming alongside Capone-N-Noreaga, Lord Nez’s diverse experiences in the industry have made him into who he is today – a classically-modern MC with the sole purpose of making head-nodding music that makes the listener think, reflect, and question. Nez stops by ProfileWild to talk about his classic cuts with the likes of Large Professor and Hi-Tek, his musical growth, paying homage to the vets and legends, his new video series, and much more in this exclusive interview. Stay tuned after the interview for some exclusive acapella flames too.
