Finding Novyon re-emerged last week with the lead single off of his upcoming album, That’s My Dawg. Titled “Never Too High,” the Girard Hennepin produced record comes in smooth at the beginning but drops hard at the :35 second mark. Novyon attacks the record with vengeance giving fans insight into his remarkable journey. Known for his high energy records, Novy channels that same energy into this introspective banger. P.O.S bridges the transitions with a barrage of heavy bars, his latest album Chill, Dummy is quite possibly his best, and he has continued to feature on tracks with a variety of artists. Finding Novyon sounds locked in, “Never Too High” is a track that sets him apart from his peers, check it out above and be on the look out for That’s My Dawg.
