‘Nowstalgia’ – “the working man’s album, full of scripted canvases the everyman can relate to.” (Review via HHSE)
“…raps and beats that’ll “kick your teeth in,” Nowstalgia comes off as the working man’s album full of scripted canvases the everyman can relate to. Work, relationships and life in general cause JB Nimble to face daily grievances and Citizen helps him vent these frustrations by providing eclectic, punching drums…
…[While] at times the songs’ objective is to display talent, each track always offers something interesting to note. JB Nimble’s matter-of-fact tone menacingly rides along Citizen’s head-nodding production and smooth-sailing samples. Overall, this project will be received well by the everyman and all should give it a listen.”

‘Nowstalgia’ is available now on iTunes (below), Amazon, eMusic, Spotify or in the Study Music Shop up top.
