The do-it-yourself era in music, lost for several decades due to the record industry letting money flow like water, is once again upon us. No longer are artists being signed who cannot contribute multiple skill sets (even Soulja Boy is versatile). A perfect example is Rowdy/Capitol Records recording artist, Novel, whose resume includes rapping, singing, songwriting and producing. On a remix to his single, Fighters, Novel and feature guest Joell Ortiz display why well-rounded talent trumps singular skills. Following a short stint with Rawkus Records, the multi-talented performer is busy polishing off his new album, The Audiobiography, set for release this November. Can’t wait until then? Well, you’re in luck; the Atlanta native just released Chapter One, a mixtape with DJ Green Lantern.
