Originally from Queens and based just outside Atlanta, Georgia since the age of ten, Nebu Kiniza -- the alias a play on Nebuchadnezzar, the Chaldean king -- has been active as a rapper since 2011.
That's the year the MC born Corey Reid released "IDGAF," a bold trap track that became a cult hit. After he made a name for himself, Kiniza's stature gradually heightened with releases on his label, On Some Hippy Shit (OSHS), and his vocal style became a little more assured and relaxed at once. Among the tracks he issued in 2015 were "Myself" (including a version with iLoveMakonnen), "All Good," and "Call It What You Want." The following year, his releases included "Hop Out" and "Gassed Up," the sparkling and sing-songy latter of which became his biggest track yet. In 2018, he issued the From Me 2 U EP, featuring the single "All In." ~ Andy Kellman
