As founder and host of the weekly webcast, veteran Duval emcee, Mas Appeal created The Lyricist Hour as an avenue to showcase Hip-Hop artists, regardless of whether they’re independent, underground or mainstream, the only prerequisite being that they had to make dope music. And Mas Appeal knows quite a bit about making dope music. As a solo artist and one half of Hip-Hop supergroup, Simple Complexity, the Miami native has been a fixture on the Duval County Hip-Hop scene since 2002 and is respected and revered for his talent and showmanship. He began The Lyricist Hour in 2006 with original co-host, Triclops I by distributing CD’s with a recorded show that highlighted local and national artists. As the show grew in popularity, it was moved to podcast format, becoming the first Hip-Hop podcast in Jacksonville. At its peak, The Lyricist Hour was receiving more than 1000 downloads per week with listeners throughout the Southeast, the US and Europe and featured interviews with Evidence of Dilated Peoples fame, DJ Spinna, Kev Brown and Salt-n-Pepa’s DJ, Spindarella.

The sound of NOVA is exactly as you would imagine from the name: big, bright, and powerful. It’s a heavy, atmospheric and ever-shifting anthems draw on the best of classic and contemporary hard rock, bringing to mind such touchstone bands as Soundgarden, Deftones, and U2. Essentially, it is a sound that can knock you off your feet one minute, and soothe you in the next.
