‘After All’ is just one of the dopamine-boosting tracks on Nashbi’s 2021 EP, GOD GIVEN, that teaches the listener how to smile through the pain; with the high energy beats that eclipse NYC Hip Hop, there won’t be much of a learning curve.
His standout track, After All, is so much more than a collection of witty lyrical observations; it exhibits an unparalleled level of empathy. You’ll find most rap artists turning their lyricism into naval-gazing introspection; Nashbi penned the lyrics to After All in a way that allows the listener to apply the wisdom to their situation and let the empathy to resonate on a personal level.
The Atlantan artist is just one of the MCs adding his flow to the stream of conscious hip hop 2021, yet, with his dynamic presence, perception-shifting optimism, and vibrant beats, if anyone can make a positive impact, it is Nashbi.
After All is available to stream along with Nashbi’s 2021 EP, GOD GIVEN, via Spotify.
