Nomis The O'side Resident
NomiS is a socially conscious eMCee from southern California. Born in San Bernardino County, he moved to Oceanside California (San Diego) at age 8. Coming from a musically inclined background, NomiS found himself interested in many different genres of music early on. He found a connection to Hip Hop culture and music during middle school where he began to dabble in verse writing. Midway through Highschool the alias "NomiS" became his musical identity. Simultaneously his first rap group arose with three other eMCee's in the same school. The fellowship was short lived, but NomiS continued rapping and writing. On October 22nd 2004, NomiS released the album "Destined Misconception". Around this time NomiS hooked up with a long time friend and local DJ named, "Topher 85". This is when things started coming together. The two continued to pay dues locally. Meanwhile, NomiS was studying music at a California State University, and the two of them started on the grind with shows and trying to perfect their crafts. Performing everywhere from School's, bar's, church's, coffee shops, and living rooms. Together they have opened up shows for the likes of Wanda Sykes, Abstract Rude, Juliette Lewis, freestyle legend SuperNATURAL, The Visionaries, LMNO, Qwel, 4th Avenue Jones, LA Symphony, Deux Process and many others. In Spring 2006 the two of them performed for a crowd of 14,000 people at SDSU's "Cox ARENA". In May of 2006 NomiS was still experimenting to find his distinct sound and released an EP entitled "Together Is Power" which included colabs with members of both the Deepspace 5 camp, and Future Shock. In December of 2007 NomiS released a full length side project with a fellow local eMCee named Jeremiah Bonds under the group name of, "Forgotten Heroes". In May of 2008, NomiS finally found his distinct sound and released his first true full length solo album entitled, "Mouthpiece of the Lion" which features collaborations with Vanderslice (Sean Price, Murdah Mook), theBREAX, the Listener (Deepspace 5), Scribbling Idiots and more. NomiS continues to attempt to bring truth to everyone. Understanding the responsibility of an eMCee, NomiS seeks to provoke thought in the minds of any and all who will listen.
