Consisting of three core founders: O, Plan Be (mcs) and Delay (beats and production).
O - born and bred in Cape Town an mc with a singing history, his baritone husk wraps thought provoking lyrics that roll on a paced delivery.
Plan Be - born in Dominica (Caribbean) lived and traveled extensively, a mixed accent wields an effortless flow that bounces and weaves in and out of rhythmic patterns.
Delay - born and bred in Cape Town, (son of a pianist) he shapes tailored intricate soundscapes that have more of a ‘classic’ than ‘contempary’ sound. Delay is somewhat of a visionary, with a unique approach and execution to his art.
All are passionate and dedicated to their music and as all are solo artists as well, NSC has enough material to keep busy and release consecutively.
With sights set on raising local and international musical standards NSC bring ‘reality rap’ from the heart in a time where mainstream rap is shallow and one dimensional.
With hopes to raise pride and faith in the struggling South African music industry-
A new sun is rising on the industry’s horizon.
