Nolan The Ninja – Oranges

Nolan Chapman aka Nolan the Ninja is a Detroit based emcee, rapper and producer whose brand of Hip Hop encompasses a sense of nostalgia whilst maintaining a modern freshness. Over the years, Chapman has shared several projects via DJ Soko’s Left of Center record label in the form of ‘Fuck the Hype’, ‘he[art] AND ‘Yen’, but it’s with his major label debut ‘Sportee’ where the rapper truly sets himself apart from his contemporaries. With contributions from the likes of Chuck Inglish, A-Minus, Black Nix and more, the gargantuan record which boasts over twenty songs is the perfect embodiment of Chapman’s spirited flow, impassioned songwriting and hard-hitting soundscapes.
As part of his COLORS performance, Nolan the Ninja works his magic on ‘Oranges’, a stand out single from ‘Sportee’. Produced by 5ynoT, the track takes an old-school aesthetic with a super mellow and bouncy beat which serves as the perfect backdrop for Nolan the Ninja to lay down his brilliant verses with an unforgiving, relentless edge. Check out the fierce performance of ‘Oranges’ up top, and if you haven’t already, make sure to get ‘Sportee’ on rotation too!
