Chapter 13 - Nevermore's Asylum

(Charlotte, NC, June 10, 2005) --- Rashid Hadee and Young Valentine of Chapter 13 have been waiting the sidelines patiently, dropping a 12 in 2004 and starring on all of Neblina's releases to date... but this July, they finally get their chance to shine on their own. After months of production & experimentation, Neblina is at last ready to reveal the group's long-awaited effort, Nevermore's Asylum.
Following in the footsteps of double threat pioneers such as The RZA, Diamond D and Havoc of Mobb Deep, Rashid Hadee and Young Valentine create beautiful music with aggressive rhymes that are thoughtful and refreshing, says Neblina co-founder Leo Jeffers.
Nevermore's Asylum features all-classic Chapter 13 production with the exception of one track by the enigmatic SP-1200 producer Gensu Dean and Corner 2 Corner, produced by New Jerseys Analogic. Songs like All Day and Makin It Right showcase our classic production style, states Rashid, but Burnin, Walk Together and Vacation bring a totally new sound to the table. We like to be different we take risks and basically do what we want to do.
From tagging grafitti on walls to waking up to the ice-cold hawk of the Windy City in his Hyundai Elantra, Rashid passionately recounts tales of life in Chicago while overcoming personal demons and obstacles. The talented producer has laced tracks for MCs such as Common Sense and Special Ed and has even shared production credits with fellow Chi-town native Kanye West on Abstract Mindstate's Still Paying album. His production credits include the gems Watchin My Moves, Demonz and Do the Math by Skinny Kenny.
Cocky, confident, and proud Gemini, Young Valentine was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, where he met Rashid at a local high school. Valentine brings a very unique sound to Chapter 13; his production style is a mix of East Coast underground with a noted dirty-south influence. My music is straight from the heart, proclaims Valentine, I'm from the south but grew up listening to all kinds of hip-hop, and those influences are clear in my music. Valentine is best known for his production on the 12 vinyl classic, The Rebirth.
Young V and Rashid work together with a yin and yang duality to create dynamic depictions of pavement pain mixed with well-mastered lyrical prowess. Nevermore's Asylum is a culmination of real mc skills and breathtaking production that breaks the current hip-hop mold, taking the listener deep inside the complex world of Chapter 13.
