Posted by Safari Jeffries on Jul 29

SonicBids winner and Jersey City’s native, Nufeel kicks it with Safari and talks about what’s poppin with the Nufeel music movement.

Safari Jeffries: Homie, how would you describe the content you put out?

Nufeel: Real. Just something people can relate to but something that also comes with dope beats and flows that won’t put you to sleep

Safari: Where are you from? How did it influence your musical style?

Nufeel: New Jerusalem aka New Jersey. I live in Jersey City and was heavily influenced by the bad boy era in the 90’s with BIG, Mase, Puff, the lox, etc.

Safari: If you were stranded in the desert and there were 3 items that you could have, what would they be and how would they be used?

Nufeel: Water so I can survive longer (laughs). A tent to avoid the extreme heat/sun and cold at night. And a satellite phone to get the f*ck outta there.

Safari: Tell us about the Love Jones single. Where did the concept come about?

Nufeel: Love Jones came about very organically. I had the beat and loved it so I quickly wrote 3 verses to it. I couldn’t come up with a hook for it so I started playing with some samples and ran across the Dave Chappelle clip and started laughing. A light bulb went off so I chopped the clip and added it to the beat. The love Jones aspect came from a bar I spit in my verse and I just ran with it since it fit.

Safari: Why is A3C Important to you and Important to the Culture?

Nufeel: A3C is important to me because it’s one of the biggest venues I have graced so far. It’s important to the culture because any festival that embraces and spreads hip hop on a grand scale is crucial. Music gives life to people.

Safari: What should we expect from you at the 2014 A3C Festival?

Nufeel: Energy man. I’m so excited to be out there with artist like Black Thought! Just a dope performance showcasing the instrumentals I produce with all the drum breaks & good vibes.

Safari: Since A3C, how has your Career been affected? What Milestones have you achieved?

Nufeel: Since A3C I was also booked for another festival in Boston and have signed with a booking agency called Trapped in Berlin for European shows.

Safari: Where do you see the Hip Hop Culture in the next 5 years?

Nufeel: I see it continuing to grow & change and we as artist and fans should embrace that. Anything that doesn’t change dies.

Safari: What up-coming projects are on the horizon?

Nufeel: I am currently finishing up the follow up project to my Year Of Potential EP. It will be a 10 track album that is completely different than anything that is out.
