about

After countless international tours, numerous chart-topping albums, and producing for underground hip-hop’s elite (including Ghostface, Raekwon, Tech N9ne, M.O.P., ONYX, and Vinnie Paz), the European production powerhouse Snowgoons partner with true-school duo N.B.S. for the politically charged and boom-bap driven “Trapped in America”.

The Boston Globe declared “If any group is due some success, it’s N.B.S.”; living up to that declaration and backed with thunderous Snowgoons production, N.B.S. (cousins Flash and Knuckles) masterfully stride the line between consciousness and consequence for young, black men in the United States and beyond.

Known for their intelligent, streetwise approach to truthful hip-hop, the independent rap favorites have garnered a rabid fan base that stretches from Budapest to Boise and have racked up frequent comparisons to both Mobb Deep and Dead Prez. Well-received initial reviews, a multi-country release tour, and clamoring critics all point to the chance that Trapped in America will be the album of 2015.
