From the moment of that realization, NovA, began to perfect his lyrical ability, carefully analyzing every line to ensure perfection. By the age of 17, NovA had begun being featured in the Philadelphia Daily News and receiving glowing reviews for his music on the now defunct PhillyHipHop.com .
In 2007, NovA recorded, his first full-length album “The Myth of Sisyphus”. “The Myth of Sisyphus”, however, would not be officially released due to NovA’s decision to focus on receiving his B.A in Philosophy from Temple University.
However, the itch to record new music soon caught a hold of NovA once more while still in school. Over a 2 year period, he began exploring new sounds and song structures, recording over 100 new songs. This new music would become the basis for his new album “The New Black”. “The New Black” is an album unlike any other before it, blending Hip Hop, Rock, Pop, and R&B into one cohesive sonic adventure. It is a bold departure from the “Philly Rap” sound so prevalent among Philadelphia Hip Hop artists.
