Rising rapper Quez Co’Dean returns with his first full length project since 2011. Over 14-tracks he reveals the struggles he has had since that time, battling back from severe poverty, homelessness and becoming a father. “5 Years Later” is the culmination of all of his experiences and it shows in the subject matter, with songs like “Young Men Blues” and “Payne In My Eyez” speaking deeply on what all those dark times have taught him. Quez makes it a mission to show the differences in his life now as well, with celebratory anthems like “Make Em Believe” and “Connected” balancing out the project.
Helping to craft the set is SplurgeMan Rico, RaRa, Piff, SplurgeMan T-Low, Wally Bo & Ikita with production from JMark, OG LOGAN & Christopher Al TRAKKENSTEIN. Camden Da Bastard brings the vision to life with the artwork and the visuals. The Starkville, Mississippi native gets DJ LAKEGANG to host, with sponsorship from 1stDayFresh and The Gold Zone. Stream via Spinrilla and view the video for his regional smash “Connected” below.

“Pluto” is nonSense’s latest visual from his debut album ‘Mercury Retrograde’. The New Jersey rapper really showcases his storytelling ability through wicked wordplay and rhymes. The high quality visuals will keep you entertained throughout the entire video just as much as his lyrics. The video portrays an interesting series of clips too. It begins with nonSense tied up and ends with them putting a bag over his head. I guess our imagination has to end the story.
nonSense was born and raised in the hard streets of Newark, New Jersey. Raised in a single parent household, Frantz endured and overcame hardships. Coming from such a chaotic environment, nonSense needed an outlet in order to express his frustrations, fears and future. So, he began writing poetry but was soon entranced by music. Drawing from his mother’s love of music, nonSense began listening, experimenting and cultivating his own craft and style. He chose the name “nonSense”; aiming to create music that compelled the listener to dig deeper in order to reveal the message behind the words. He currently has 3 projects out; ‘Up the Downs’ which dropped 4 years ago, ‘Cosmic Vibes’ 11 months ago, and ‘Mercury Retrograde’ which dropped last month.
