A 6′ foot 4″, 145 pound soaking wet, rail-thin rapper from Western Pennsylvania. Doesn’t sound like much, that is, until you hear it.

Often his rap style is described as “bouncy”, “explosive” and “colorful”. GO Magazine calls him “One of those all-too-rare musicians who understands the difference between playing a gig and delivering a show”. His sharp delivery, smooth wordplay and amiable stage presence is what makes him a vibrant experience to see and hear. "NOVI NOV molds catchy, commercial hip-hop with intricate lyrics to produce an appealing sound” says

The self-proclaimed “Tall Slimmy” has rocked the stage with some of the best having opened for artist such as Wiz Khalifa, Flo-Rida, Lil Jon, Roscoe Dash, Travis Porter, Ryan Leslie, and more. He is a Pittsburgh Hip Hop Award winner, A3C Award Nominated Video Director, MySpace Music Feature Artist, and sort of a viral sensation with his “Periodic Table Rap” reaching over 250,000 views. 

Jump started and driven by his sister’s belief in him, NOVI began to perform around his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After making a name for himself in the local hip hop community, along side artist such as Wiz Khalifa, Boaz, and Mac Miller; NOVI would make his way to Atlanta, GA. Moving on faith and an undying dedication to his craft, he would rub elbows with Jermaine Dupri, T.I., Nelly, Trey Songz, Big Sean, Rick Ross, J.Cole, and many, many more.

Spending years just under the industry radar, the stage seems set for "his time”. He hopes to create a legacy in music that lasts far beyond his years and if for nothing else, to show his lone daughter, Jozi, she can do anything she sets her mind to.

“Conquer The Devil” (written by M. Rankin)

Achieve it only if i believe it / most these suckas is lucky wit me luck isnt needed / hustle sweat and i grind i swear that these niggas cheated / aint no time for complaining just get in the game and beat it / my reflection says my destiny’s due thru my review / extended minutes in sessions GOD images through / get the point for the sentence is through / break outta prison wit a couple of bars do how the citizens do / forget chasin them ghosts 9/5 to ya grave / fantasize seeing rays through the cloudiest days /my daughter dont see me wile im grinding for praise / the spirit slaves to never fail rhyme on a stage / risk it all for pocket lint facebook likes / read and retweets my opulence stasis defeat moments in deep / forgettin all my christian beliefs stuck in a shadow of my own feats / foot on my feet standing on one leg holdin my ground / stares wooden but some stay holding me down / not sure my motive its harder now to keep my head level / but ima die a legend and rebel watch me conquer the devil

*chorus x4* Watch me conquer the devil *chorus end*

Scene was a genius his team was full of demons in dreams / solace his privacy college his insurance policy scheme / blood thick in his poet marks had the heart to beat dragons / seemed like the planet was laggin / baggage heavy feet dragging / beggin for scars share his soul words electronically / fuckin around honestly bitches astonish me / fall in love whatever accepted heart broken left it / left a bit of himself in a wide open necklace its all / a little bit fucked up what am i dog a little bit fucked up i manage dog / from not only that so much as made me lack / heart compassion soul fire / that all faceted well fastned in faster race driver / in this lifes fast lane the pains liver / the trains rider cannot control why the conductor cannot switch rails I tried to / racked out my motherfuckin brains i got to / find a way to put out all these flames i got to / nothin in this planet seem the same i got to / make it so my pictures in the frame i got to / even if they never hear my name i got to / fuck it nigga charge it to the game i got to / this for my daughter not the fame i got to / this is for my daughter not the fame /

*choir* I shot the the devil *repeats to end*
