If You Like Jay-Z, Then Try These Rappers

If You Like Jay-Z, Then Try These Rappers

This Phylly lyricist made his national debut on MTV's Making the Band II, created by Diddy. Ness, the first finalist to be selected for the show, ended up being the breakout star of Da Band. Diddy fondly referred to him as "the captain" of the crew.

Listening to E Ness calls to mind Jay-Z's metaphor-heavy, no-holds-barred approach to lyricism.
