This week MITD presents the born and raised DC artist Ras Nebyu as the local artist pick of the week. Ras Nebyu aka Thunder Man aka Ras Griffin III aka The Starting Point Guard For The Washington Slizzards creates music reflective of his Rastafarian/Pan-Africanist upbringing.
The artist presents listeners with socially conscious substance while maintaining a leisure listening flow without compromising his lyrics. Ras Nebyu has kept his DC roots close to him in his music, having released an EP with a collection of songs about dealing with life in DC as a young black man with a unique Uptown Ethiopian Rasta perspective.
