With close ties to Wu-affiliated acts such as Bronze Nazareth, Hell Razah, or Kevlaar 7 (R.I.P.), the critically acclaimed debut solo album by NY area located emcee and producer Zagnif Nori finally gets proper worldwide distribution. “The Meridian Gem” (officially released in 2013) sounds like an old Wu-Tang record – raw, dusty, and grimy, combined with sharp and intelligent lyricism.
Guest appearances on this 17-track strong boom-bap banger include all artists of Nori’s Noble Scity collective: Crucial The Guillotine, Danamic, Illy Vas, Kaotny & Sleeps. The album also features Kevlaar 7 and Heaven Razah [aka Hell Razah of Sunz of Man] and contains soulful and hard-hitting production courtesy of Crucial The Guillotine, Illy Vas, Kevlaar 7, and Zagnif Nori himself.
