The hip hop duo from Florida known as Nobodies have released their self-titled full-length record, “Nobodies.” The album contains nine original tracks for a total listening time of half an hour. It has been proudly published on the Blackhouse Records independent music label without the direction or support of the corporate music industry. Intelligent, iconoclastic, and aggressively shouting down the ills of modern society, “Nobodies” by Nobodies is a rap record fans of hip hop from every walk can get behind.
The official music video for the record’s popular single, “Zero Tolerance/Inaction,” is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76laab4VrwE. An official video for its opening track, “Hermes Trismegistus,” has also been made available for listening and viewing online.
Asked to cite some main influences, Florida’s Nobodies say their music is for “fans of Denzel Curry, Vince Staples, Awful Records, Miami, punk rock, trap, and hip hop.” Their sound is a mixture of contemporary dirty south and New York styles, with artistic principles drawn from social activism and subcultures such as the punk movement and late 19th-century occultism. The result is a smart, heavy-hitting collection of songs that recalls acts like Dead Prez and the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy.
Speaking of the themes of their new record, Nobodies write, “Nobodies are about bringing home the idea that we are all here to serve a greater purpose than to cycle through the mundane day-to-day tasks, and that we should all embrace our greatness. Music that pushes boundaries, in a sonic sense, as well as lyrically, and spreading the message to masses to do the same.”
Nobodies are a duo comprised of longtime pals MTFR (Matt the F’n Rapper) and Jah (usually stylized ‘JAH’). They have distinguished themselves in rap circles by eschewing the shameless self-aggrandizing and ostentation practiced by many hip hop artists today, choosing instead to “be prolific and release nothing but precedent-setting, groundbreaking new material.”
Music videos by Nobodies have been directed by the recent underground favorite, FXRBES.
Blackhouse Records have described Nobodies saying, “This addition to the Blackhouse Records lineup is unlike anything we have ever taken on in 15 years of operation. In this partnership, the future will see not only an upcoming full length by NOBODIES, but also solo releases from MTFR and JAH separately. We couldn’t be more elated to have these guys aboard and absolutely cannot wait to present to you what they have coming your way.”
“Nobodies” by Nobodies is available online worldwide from Blackhouse Records at over 700 quality digital music stores now. Get in early, rap fans. Very early.
