Narbui Selah

I Am Living Math

I my opinion there is not enough conscious poet-rappers in the music world. All the major record labels won’t give any political conscious artist or any artist with something real to say a record deal. As long as artists keep conforming to what the record labels want and selling out nothing will change. Well Narbui Selah happens to not be a sellout. She is a vocalist and spoken word artist. Her raps have you thinking about what’s really going on in this crazy world. Narbui released her independent debut album “I Am Living Math” in 2010. She hits it out of the park on her debut album. It’s a mix of hip hop, spoken word and passionate singing. This amazing artist is from Trenton, NJ but lives in Brooklyn, New York. I don’t know what it is about East Coast artist I think they are the best. That’s just my opinion. I like the way Narbui Selah uses metaphors. She has toured with and recorded with some heavy hitters such as Mos Def, Sista Soulja, Lauryn Hill, Big Pun, Poor Righteous Teachers, Mums and Sac-Roc. My favorite songs from “I Am Living Math” album are “U Already Know”, “What Am I Doing Here (featuring Sa-Roc)”, “Birdie”, “I’m Gone” and “Hookless”. Tune into Streetwise Radio and listen to songs from this amazing talent. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on MyGern365, Athena365, Live365, Pandora and iTunes.
