FM Meets: NASHBI

By Vee D

Born and raised in Clayton County in the south of Atlanta to Haitian parents – Nashbi describes his music as ‘conscious mainstream’. His smooth & convincing new track After All, is dedicated to young men and women who are suffering from broken homes, as well as parents who may not notice their influence on their children. Written whilst he was working his day job at the Governor’s Office in Georgia, After All, is lifted from Nashbi’s highly anticipated EP God Given .

Hi Nashbi! Thanks for taking the time to chat with us. How are you doing? 

I’m blessed by God’s grace and excited to release our new EP this year!

Who are some of your biggest musical and non-musical inspirations and why?

Big Sean

Big Sean is one of the most honest and down to earth artists on the planet. In addition to his amazing lyricism and songwriting skills, the sincerity in his music is super inspiring.

Russ

I had the honor of meeting Russ last month. Russ has been my biggest inspiration these past couple years because of his very unique yet successful approach to being an indie artist. Ownership is Key

Childish Gambino

Donald Glover is arguably top 5 most interesting artists of our generation. His genius surpasses basic knowledge. His well rounded approach to art is more than inspiring. 

Bishop Jakes 

Bishop TD Jakes has been a major influence on my life. I believe God used him to speak to me these past couple of years.

Shaquille O’Neal

Shaq is proof that you can be a jack of all trades and do it all well. He has a PHD in Education, 4 NBA Championships, he’s a police officer, a rapper, a DJ, and he owns over 150 business franchises. I also own a business as I do music. iyodadigital.com 

Master P

Master P selling over 100,000,000 records in his lifetime is one of the most underrated accomplishments of all time.

What are you thinking right now?

How grateful I am to have the opportunity to do what I love.

What was the first album you bought?
