Born in the Bay Area and raised in the rural south, Tennessee rapper/songwriter nobigdyl.’s sound embodies the eclectic nature of his upbringing. A storyteller at heart, his influential lyrics are part memoir, part stream of consciousness as he wrestles through the concepts of faith, ego, love, and loss. Gliding over production ranging from hard-hitting to ethereal, Dylan employs wit and introspection as he explores what it means to be a black boy raised in the backwoods of Tennessee.
