N.R.I.: Husband, Father, Chef, Lyricist.
The issues of real life are the most sugar coated and watered down subjects in the spotlight often exploited for the worst. N.R.I. formally known as The Drill Sergeant Funk, has once again teamed up with his life long friend Nod, producer/owner of Rhythm Beast Records, to deliever a positive blow to the Hip Hop industry using issues of real life. N.R.I. chooses positive reality with no fear of "corny lyrics." Messages not only for the dedicated Hip Hop listeners, but also for our children. At the same time uplifting our women. Without this important element we have no future. For once, let us make our older generations proud of what Hip Hop can do for our people. N.R.I. is dedicated to positive funk for our souls. Reinventing good beats and hot rhymes and putting IN OUR EYES.
