Neva Attack Tha Originals is the formation that consists of (D.Phunk and Mad Rush). The team-up of NATO took place in 2002 and played a major role in the founding of the Noo Age Cipher. Many would think that NATO is a rookie group, since they only joined in 2002, but of course that’s not the case, both emcees have held their square in the underground for over a decade.
The first project released by NATO was in 2005, the album “The Twisted World”. Where, the listener is faced with today’s absolutely twisted reality. Only those with a strong character will be able to maintain and not drift off into the forgotten realms.
The second release came in 2006, a mix tape “Tha Twisted Tape”, basically a potent follow up to the album. The mix tape contains exclusively German beat productions, combined with English lyrics – normally it’s always the other way around (US beats and German lyrics).
Here we go again! The sequel has emerged. In 2007 the third release “Expanded Universe”, NATO displays evolution from every angle. Providing the music world with a wide ranged sound spectrum, superior lyricism and mad styles.
“Major Disaster” – The final chapter in the Earth Trilogy provides a supreme conclusion in the year 2009. Consistently overcoming many obstacles, NATO still strives to make a difference bringing style, heart, lyricism and flavor back to a fading culture!
By any means NATO’s view of music is very broad and one could say that they are most truly lyrical versatiliens. Explaining why their style, choice of music and character will target various listening groups.
D.Phunk and Mad Rush have seen many different places throughout their lives, coming up as underground emcees, but never the less, are very open minded and definitely ready to see even more….
