Carol City Rapper N3ll Raps About "the Life of a Kid From a City That Doesn't Understand Him"

If you follow internet rap, then chances are you've heard something from Miami's latest underground phonk rapper, N3ll. Though he's been making music since 2008, word has only started getting out about the young MC these past few years.

His 2014 mixtape, Boyz N the Hood, was a SoundCloud sensation, with featured songs by Miami's current golden boy, Denzel Curry. Last week, he dropped his newest mixtape, The Screw Tape, a hazy, '90s mashup with features by Amber London and Twelve'len.
