Staten Island-bred emcee Tha Real Ness is showcasing his hardcore street mentality with a perfect twist of meaningful verses.
Born and raised In Staten Island Tha Real Ness showed a talent for spitting at a young age freestyling and rapping on cue on the corners of Staten Island. Entertaining small crowds with his ability to rhyme on queue with any word the crowd would give him.
Sharpening his craft Ness linked up with his long lost friend Bayz a.k.a. King David; young and eager to start a movement Bayz and Tha Real Ness recorded in dorm rooms, closets, basements and anywhere you could fit a mic and a speaker. With Bayz’s ability to produce extravagant songs and Tha Real Ness’s uncanny ability to compose tracks in minutes the two quickly progressed into 523.
With an arsenal of mc’s from Staten Island to the Bronx, the squad was truly Untouchable. After a slight downfall between the group and a couple of misfortunes, Tha Real Ness took a two-year break from the mic. Now back from his break Tha Real Ness has formed into an even bigger threat than ever before and will be dropping his debut album As Real As It Gets in 2017.
Check out his debut single below.
