hip hop scene , F.M.2.0. was challenging the limits with complex graphic yet significant lyrical

symbolism combined with impressionist poetry on the verbal side and dark driving hard beats

on the other with the futuristic scratches of Mix Master Mike and Dj Abert, production done by

Apollo Novicio. The group opened shows for several groups such as Gang Starr, Organized

Konfusion, Cypress Hill, Special Ed & De La Soul. The group disbanded unfortunately in the early

nineties. Some work was produced by Dj Apollo and Nim in the gap of time that followed. Nim

One became heavily involved in International travel to Jamaica and started an Import Export

became a father and though still musically involved with various bands primarily focused on

fatherhood. 2014 marks Nim Ones return to the music with his album The 13 Disciple.

CURRENTLY

2014 marks Nim Ones return to the music with his album The 13 Disciple. Spiritual

overtones yes, but a rebelistic song not an egotantrum. This album is being released on

hop hands down no carbon copy. The album is designed to keep your attention with versatility,

truth, fire and humor and of course lyricism.
