Finding Novyon has had a superb 2016. The kid has criss-crossed the nation performing shows from Philly to L.A. and everywhere in between, he even managed to blaze the stage at Soundset 2016 making his mark as one of the day’s stand out performers. One look at his Soundcloud will show a plethora of new music, Novy has released 3 (!) projects this year; living up to his reputation as one of Minneapolis’ hardest working artists. A couple of weeks ago he dropped, Super Saiyan 2 the follow up to February’s hit Super Saiyan. A step away from the more laid back sounds of Believe in MPLS, Novy doubles down with a barrage of high octane bangers. Production from Sonny Digital dots the track list while Ness Nite, Webster X, Jace and Curtis Williams of Two-9 fill the only features. We can’t wait to see some of these live, check out Super Saiyan 2 above and be on the look out for more from Finding Novyon.

Finding Novyon has been ALL over the place as of late and things are only looking up for 2016’s 4th quarter. The budding star recently released a new track dubbed, “I Can’t Lose,” via Soundcloud. Produced by Sonny Digital, the record sees features from Two-9s Jace & Curtis Williams. The energy on this one is all the way up and each artist manages to balance lyricism well with the overall vibe. Another solid record from one of Minneapolis’ most promising, Novy will be in NYC and Philly this week so stay tuned for more.
Finding Novyon is only a few weeks removed from the release of his latest project, Believe in MPLS, but the Minneapolis artist is showing that he has no plans to slow down. Last week he released the JXHNSCXTT produced, “They Done,” and now he’s back with “On Me.” The self produced record is ultra laid back, Novy finesses the track sprinkling in catchy lines and a bounce worthy hook. Peep “On Me” for yourself below and keep it locked here for more from Finding Novyon.
Finding Novyon has been everywhere in 2016, most recently he up’d the ante with the release of his new project Believe In MPLS. A collaboration with fellow Minnesotan, producer J. KELR; the album proves that both artists still have plenty to offer. The title track unfolds cinematically with Novyon cast among various locations, Robert Henry even enlists a drone allowing for some nice aerial shots. A record that should be in everyone’s rotation, “Believe In MPLS,” is a nice change of pace from the current trap sound that is so prevalent in hip hop right now. Check out the video for “Believe In MPLS” above and make sure to keep an eye out for more from Finding Novyon and J. KELR.
