Great. Now that we know where the drive and passion comes from…
Paris-born, to the Comoros Islands, then Washington DC raised, Napoleon is a Brooklyn-based artist who uses his voice as weapon of hope, social-critique, conquest, and joy. N.D.L.’s song “Black Privilege” led him to be featured at the Essence Festival in 2017. He was then invited to perform live on FOX 5’s Good Day DC.
N.D.L.’s message of empowerment, community, and self-determination through music doesn’t stop there. He also works regularly with youth, running hip-hop workshops in Brooklyn’s toughest schools and Rikers Island’s juvenile programs.
2018 was a Jordan year, without a doubt. N.D.L released 10 projects- including four albums, four mixtapes, and two EP’s released through various indie labels (Chopped Herring, Media Pop and Fxck Rxp).
From hip-hop that makes you think and feel triumphant, to infectious, memorable dance records, Napoleon continues to prove he’s a force to be reckoned with. And he’s only just begun.
