negative lee nyce is not an 'average artist', nor does his story resemble that of an 'average rapper'. From a middle school teacher burning his rhyme-book to his father burning his demo on their front lawn, it goes without saying that lee has fought for every ounce of respect while finding himself inside of music. It wasn't until meeting Kill-Matix (now Kid Sugoi), an aspiring Pittsburgh emcee/producer that negative's 'true sound' was created by mixing verbal & witty lyrics with eclectic samples & heavy production. This team of 'illegal prophets' (Kid Sugoi & negative lee nyce) have created what has been deemed 'mangled soul' & are defined as a 'breath of fresh air' after negative lee nyce's debut "Moms Was My Roommate" (entirely produced by Kid Sugoi) officially re-vamped the culture through creativity & originality which begs to ask the question...
