Virgin Music strikes deal with Paul Rosenberg’s Goliath Records to release new music from rapper and social media personality, Nems.
The rapper and social media personality’s new single “Drip” and the new album are set for release soon.
Paul Rosenberg, Chairman of Goliath Records, said, “Nems is a battle-tested street legend in New York City with a devoted fanbase that he built from scratch. Same for his brands. He’s got incredible intuition and of course unbelievable talent. He did it his way and totally on his own so far. I’m thrilled to be able to work with him to bring his music to the world with Goliath Records and Virgin Music.”
Nems says, “Salute to GOLIATH and Paul Rosenberg for seeing the vision and believing in the LYFERS. Don't ever disrespect me and think this sh*t happened overnight. We don't throw parties to celebrate shit that ain't happen yet. We OUTSIDE. ‘RISE OF THE SILVERBACK’. AUGUST 18th. BING FUCKING BONG.”
Jacqueline Saturn, President of Virgin Music said, “Our entire team is so excited and honored to work with Nems, Paul Rosenberg and their team. We can’t wait to share his new music with fans around the world.”
The forthcoming album, ‘Rise Of The Silverback’, was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Scram Jones.
In 2021, Nems coined the phrase “Bing Bong” which exploded across social media, with over 1 Billion views on TikTok for the hashtag ‘#bingbong’.
Multiple celebrities shared Nems’ sound across their videos including Joe Biden, The Jonas Brothers, John Legend, Lil Nas X, Olivia Rodrigo, Jack Harlow, and Avril Lavigne while the New York Knicks used the sound as a catchphrase.
The unofficial ‘Mayor of Coney Island’ Nems rose to popularity across social media, with viral videos of street interviews from the popular internet show “Sidetalk”.
This, coupled with his hard-hitting songs caught the attention of music manager Paul Rosenberg, who signed Nems to his label, Goliath Records.
Nems is a multi-talented artist and entrepreneur who’s created numerous albums, a successful clothing line (FYL), performed stand up comedy, and even hosted a season of REVOLT’s “The Crew League”.
Since releasing his debut album in 2010, Nems has worked with some of the most recognizable names in rap including Fat Joe, D12, Busta Rhymes, Styles P, Ghostface Killah, Dave East, and more.
A prominent battle rapper, Nems was selected to MTV2’s Fight Klub league, where he recorded the most wins by any MC in league history.
