BIO Emcee Nemesis: Born and raised in the 7 Cities (Hampton Roads, Virginia,) this multi-talented emcee is no stranger to paying dues. Raised on soul and gospel music, and born into a family of musicians; ranging from piano players to opera singers, Emcee Nemesis was immersed in music his whole life until finally discovering hip-hop at the age of ten. It wasn’t long after that he would gain a reputation as being the “Nemesis” of any emcee who dared to take the challenge. His aggressive, yet eclectic and articulate flow is a product of the various rap-styles, and other musical genres by which he was directly influenced. For Emcee Nemesis, every sixteen spit is done so with passion and purpose; choosing substance over shine-factor, and rhyming to move the crowd over moving units. Having spent years on the grind learning the business and perfecting his craft, he now stands poised and ready to strong-arm the Hip Hop community. Get Ready!

Today is a momentous occasion for Detroit-bred emcee Royce Da 5'9". Earlier this morning, VEVO premiered not one but two videos featuring the underground hip-hop firebrand.
The first is a video for "Writer's Block," the Eminem-assisted single from Royce's recently released solo album, Success Is Certain. Not content to make a video for the album track alone, Royce's clip switches gears at the halfway point into the horn-blasting lowend of the DJ Premier "Writer's Block" remix, which made the rounds earlier this month and is featured on the exclusive iTunes version of Success Is Certain.
