Yes, we put “DMV Rap Legend” in the title. Journey back to a time in DMV rap…before Rico Nasty, Shy Glizzy, before Wale. Back to a time where U Street was the place to hone your rap chops, and being an emcee in the area was as rare as finding a four-leaf clover. During that time, Priest Da Nomad was one of the most well-known and well-respected rappers in the city. A lot has changed in the city since then, and Priest addresses that in his “Can’t Lose the Soul” video. How fitting that it’s filmed on U Street. One thing that hasn’t changed though is that Priest is still a top-tier emcee.
