Hip-Hop duo, NEFEW, have been raising their profile stateside with material from their recent project Homesick. It was tracks such as the poignant Biko featuring G.O.O.D Music signee Consequence that attacked the College Charts and encouraged the attention of some of the most recognized DJs.

Wanting to keep the momentum moving, Polemikk and PA-Double, who featured on the coveted’s Next column earlier this month, joined forces with world renowned Hip-Hop blog and their premier sponsor PUMA to deliver a new chapter of their ongoing musical biography for fans old and new.

The ANTIHERO BEGINS is a project that simply enhances the brand the duo have diligently worked hard to establish over the past few years. Prolific lyrics and odes to things that matter are complemented by string heavy, soulful musical soundscapes crafted intentionally for this album.

“With artists giving out music for free, and the industry demanding it, we thought it was time for us to walk on that same path, but at the same time we felt that releasing a mixtape using other artist’s production was just not enough. Instead we decided to produce a whole album from scratch.” – Polemikk

Their ability to create Hip-Hop, reminiscent of that which saturated the Hip-Hop timeline in its infancy, is what puts NEFEW in pole position. Their attitude to the culture, their undeniable talent and the content they are comfortable to address is what allows them to transcend boundaries with their music and their interpretation of the issues we face in our daily lives.

“This album is about us, our production, our lyrics, our story. You won’t encounter any big features with A-list artists, nor will you hear feature productions from celebrity producers. It’s just us,” the duo confirmed confidently. “What people will get from this project is great music and great inspiration. Lyrics that I feel everyone can relate to. We all have dreams, and we’re always looking for ways to make them come true. This project might serve as the blueprint for that. It is definitely not something you want to vibe to in the club, but you might want to listen to it when you plan to do big things.”
