Unsigned Talent: Cloverdale Rell – (252)


Born June 20, 1986 to George and Gwen, Cloverdale Rell is a rapping talent from Rocky Mount, North Carolina. The name Cloverdale Rell comes from his name Gerell and the old neighborhood he grew up in. He also has lived in the neighborhood called Hillsdale.

The Rocky Mount native feels he features the wordplay of an early Jadakiss and has smooth sincerity of Jay-Z or Nas. He can project imagery like Rick Ross or Young Jeezy in his rhymes as well as story telling. Cloverdale grew up heavily into sports such as baseball, basketball, and football. Growing up listening to rap he grew to respect Jay-Z, 2 Pac, Biggie, and Nas. Cloverdale also has an admiration for gospel because that was the only music his mother ever played. Gospel created a sense of soul, but the gangsta radio being played by his brothers gave him a feel of style and street savvy. His father was a military man who on weekends would find himself in and out of every liquor house in town. He says that doesn’t seem like the type of place for a 14-16 year old kid, but he feels it taught him more than a history book ever could.

Cloverdale Rell began rapping at 13 years old, but only took it serous at 16 years old when his peers took notice. He has received local awards for freestyle battles at the American Legion, but never really wanted to settle as just a battle rapper. Almost everyone rapped including his brothers, but no one expected or believed he would be that talented at such a young age. He is always nominated for lyricist, best rap, or new rap artist at the NCUMAs each year. In his raps he expresses freedom with his words by not holding anything back. I see you Cloverdale Rell!

The Revenge of Nya Lee – Our Cutt!


With the Love & Hip Hop New York season ending we are left to wonder what’s next with the curvy 23 year old Nya Lee. A bold woman out of the Bronx, NY, Nya Lee has broken down barriers and spoken on the topic of “butt shots” which is not something a lot of women are speaking on out loud. The VladTV interview is posted below. She loves speaking on the topic because she wants to make girls aware of the truth. Even though the shots are not FDA approved she still hopes to continue to look good in the future and not have side effects. She is not advising you to go out and get shots but is educating on what she has done.

Nya says there are people that don’t like her because she “Owns her shit, and wants so much more.” and “..a lot of people in the world don’t know how to want more.” She was assaulted with a razor blade during an altercation in a local bar one night leaving her with an 18 inch scar and needed 32 stitches to close the wound. The attack was out of jealousy.

The bald headed beauty believes in embracing your flaws. Owning your flaws allows things to be easier when something comes out, by then you are already on to the next level. Not caring about what people think may not be such a bad thing after all! Yes, she was a stripper. Yes, she got butt shots, but now lets focus on the music.

Music really makes Nya Lee happy. She started her own label called “Our Cutt” her successful revenge. She has worked with Jadakiss, Trey Songz, Red Cafe, and her mentor Fabolous. She is focused on putting her stripper past behind her and released her first EP called That Bitch. Nya Lee is headed for the future and the past is just a pedestal.
