MBNel Unveils Started in The South EP
Baring his soul with each clipped rhyme and plaintive melody, MBNel uses music to process trauma and express his innermost feelings. Arriving during a period of sustained growth from the new EP finds Nel reflecting on his success and paying homage to the streets that raised him. The “south” in the EP’s title refers to its position at the bottom of the map–Nel started at the bottom, but he’s quickly emerging from his circumstances off the strength of his authentic anthems. The EP is home to singles like “Other Side,” a collaboration with OTF heavy hitter Doodie Lo, plus the aspirational, piano-led “Don’t Say.” Standout track “Love Song To The Streets” Nel offers up an anthem for the streets, detailing his love for it while also reminiscing about the pain it caused him.

Detailing his feelings about a complicated relationship, Pi’erre uses languid melody and hypnotic repetition to drop some memorable quotes: “Say she in love but I know she lyin’/Say she want love but she’ll end up cryin’.”

Speaking on the single, Blessing says, “In “Plain Jane,” I’m talking about how people come and go, its one of the oldest sayings in the book. Regardless of how often I come across it, part of it always still gets to me. This song represents how I never felt like I could relate to people who were experiencing the same things as me. At the end of the day I think all of it comes from this one mazeful plot of not being understood for so long and being in that place for what feels like ages that you don’t know any different and, in that point, and time, you don’t want to.”
