Representing the Netherlands’ rap scene is Yung Nnelg, whose influence has been quickly growing since he dropped his first album “Fox P2”, in 2016. The album instantly expressed his style: pop and laidback rap, inspired by 90s rap, and jazz, funk and soul music. His songs differ from the synth based trap production that many artists now use: they are sung over beats composed by real instruments and samples, giving them a unique feel. Nnelg has dropped four albums, the latest being the 2020 release “Balans”, which meant a great deal to him, as it expanded his audience and generated a great local and European buzz. The album was so popular that it kicked off his tour all over the Netherlands and even gave him the chance to perform in large festivals such as “Woo Hah!”. His latest single “Red Ons”, made in collaboration with Willelm, was yet another success. Throughout his career, Nnelg branched out from being signed at Sony to becoming an independent artist, with his own label “Zes Nullen”. The documentary series about his life and career “Road to Balance”, made in collaboration with Red Bull, reflects on, among other things, balancing the responsibility of being a label owner with the creativity of being an artist. Nnelg’s sound has been constantly demonstrating the uniqueness of the Netherlands’ music scene to the world, making him definitely one to watch.
