1. What’s your government name? And how old are you? Give the people a little background about you, who you are, where you from etc…
My government name is Noah Rafuls. I’m 18. I was born and raised in Miami, Florida (14 years), but I went through my high-school years in a small town known as Meredith, which in up New Hampshire.
2. What is the meaning behind your rap name?/Where did it come from and why did you choose it?
My rap name is Nonchalant because
1.) It starts with the letter “N”, just like my real name
2.) It captures the essence of my jazzy, laid-back music style, and
3.) My ethic is that of a “nonchalant” nature because it takes me a small amount of time to write songs, and I do so easily. I’ve been rapping for three years now.
3. So why do you rap? Is it like a hobby or a career move?
I decided to rap because I’ve always liked writing and I’ve always been a lover of the Hip-Hop culture. I feel like I can not only be a part of that culture, but I can be one of the greatest. It is also a very effective way to vent and get my emotions out on paper. Without it, I’d probably be a very uptight person.
4. Who inspires you/Who is your favorite rapper?
My biggest inspirations include MF DOOM, Mos Def, 2Pac, and The Notorious B.I.G.
5. What are you trying to bring to the game?
I feel like I can bring the game a strong wave of talent like the legends who have passed. I mix my vocals, I do photography, and I’m now getting into videography, so I know my skills will come in use for being a relevant name in this culture.
6. What’s your favorite song or project you ever came out with?
I don’t have a favorite song of mine because all of my uploaded content is draft mixes and snippets of future projects.
7. You got any projects coming out in the near future? If so, what are they?
My next big project is a mixtape called “Imperium Anima”, which is Latin for “Empire of Soul” as it will pay a tribute to SOUL, one of the most undermining elements in the music industry today. It will pay homage to Soul and Cool Jazz, giving praise to Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and other Jazz legends.
And finally where can the people find you at online?
