#NewMusic: J. Nolan – “Shield of Faith”

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

24grlmu

As J. Nolan lays forth his stated creative intention “…my aim is to provide more substantial music that speaks to the internal struggles of our time and to be a better example with the voice that Hip-Hop has enabled our generation to have.” We here at GFM could not agree more and count it as our obligation to present a voice such as J. Nolan who has been countering the numerous assumptions that many of my(often cynical) generation re: Hip Hop circa 2014.

What I encourage us Growns (of every generation) to do when presented with an offering such as “Shield of Faith” is to listen, feel, and as so moved share. That’s something that we can all do that in the power of the aggregate is extremely substantial.

New Music: J.Nolan- “The Archetype” EP

Monday, January 30th, 2012

GFM Fam a great voice in Hip Hop is out with a new EP and we really think you should scroll down and hit that play button and tell someone if they don’t know about J.Nolan. The set consists of 5 songs, completely produced by Reese Jones. Reese is an 18 year-old producer from Virginia Beach, VA and is currently attending Howard University. The EP was completed in a span of about 9 days which just goes to show with the vibe and the players are right it doesn’t always take long to produce a quality production.

New Music: J.Nolan- “Time Machine”

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

More great music from GFM fave J. Nolan. Here’s what J.Nolan had to say about this particular release:

Just reaching out to let you know I’ve released a new promo-single called “Time Machine” (prod. oriJanus x Tuelv). It basically serves as a thank you to everyone that’s supported my music this year and is also a precursor for what’s to come in 2012. This song won’t be on any project, but I do have a new EP entitled The Archetype coming on January 16th. I’ll have the single for that out on January 3rd.

Press play below for some musical goodness…

J. Nolan – “Round” (Official Video)

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Sometimes the only commentary that is necessary is A-Yo check this out right here! I am asking all that read this post to do the same thing to all the folks that you know and we can turn the tide on this music thing. As I said earlier this year here at GFM we are more about celebrating and promoting the good and pretty much ignoring the other.

J. Nolan is back with his new music video “Round,” directed by MickzThePest. The track is from his Loose Files mixtape that came out earlier this year. Now, here is the info below to keep up with this artist on the rise. Check him out and cop that mixtape if you haven’t already.

New Music – J. Nolan “Whatever Works”

Monday, July 11th, 2011

J. Nolan is back with the new single from his forthcoming project Chaos Theory. J. Nolan is definitely an MC on a mission and his sound is one that if you’re not already familiar with you should definitely put an ear on it. The track was produced by Todd Jordan and according to J. Nolan: “It’s basically a play on how certain dudes will see a woman they’re interested in and instead of being cordial, they decide to be obnoxious and try to show off in order to get her attention. Pretty much ‘whatever works’ to get the girl. I flipped the concept a bit as you’ll hear in the song.”
