After being incarcerated, due to numerous arrests, the Brooklyn born, South Carolina raised Gifted felt it was time for change. It was during his incarceration that he began to write his emotions down on paper. It was then that he swore to never return to jail again. Upon his release from jail, he joined with A.D. the General, to form N.A.N.
Born and raised in the borough of Brooklyn, A.D. the General grew up like many of her peers, with the guns, drugs, and “hood culture” that have strangled the inner cities of many of the major cities in the United States. It is because of this upbringing that makes her story that much more impressive. Her resume is one of legends. It is borderline biblical. At the age of 16, when most girls are looking into boys, clothes, and trying to decide what sneakers match with what outfit, A.D. was already gracing the covers of such magazines as PEOPLE (Latino Magazine), Scholastic Scope, as well as being featured in various newspapers, websites, and other media publications.
Gifted and A.D. the General have been nominated two years in a row as The Most original Duo in 2009 and The Best Hip Hop duo in 2010 at The Underground Music Awards. They won the “best group” in 2010 at The Taste Makers Awards in 2010. N.A.N. has been featured on loads of publications, including Allhiphop.com, Rap Fanatic Magazine, Protégé Magazine, Get Signed Magazine, Birthplace Magazine, City Scene Magazine, Ontherisemag.com, I Flow Magazine, The Connex List, Urban Threshold, Hood Grown Magazine, Six Twelve Magazine, Hip Hop Stardom 101 Magazine, Indie Magazine, and graced the cover of HHH Magazine in Sept of 2010. N.A.N. has performed in every night club there is in NY. From Webster Hall to The Remote lounge, Bowery Poetry Club, The Five spot, Club Pyramid, The Bang, Sultanas, Alphabet lounge, karma lounge, Don hills and lounge 87 just to name a few. (In total they’ve had over 5000 performances in the NYC area alone.) There music has been played on music choice and can be heard on dozens of both internet and fm stations throughout the globe. They are currently on the Elegant Hoodness Musical Program 2012 tour.
