Napoleon Da Legend is a Paris-born, East African and Washington DC-raised, Brooklyn-based lyricist who evokes the bleak reality of the world today without losing hope for a better tomorrow. N.D.L.’s innovative short-film “Wise Men” featuring the late great Sean Price quickly became a cult hit among Hip-Hop heads with its overt challenge of the music industry establishment. His signature wordplay and voice rose from relative obscurity after the groundbreaking “Oxygen” record featuring Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon.
This lead to NDL being featured as a "Rising Star" on Fox 5 News' Good Day DC program where he was interview and performed "Black Privilege" live on-air. He would later perform at the historical and prestigious Rocksteady 40th Anniversary on SummerStage in Central with Mobb Deep.
