Born and raised in Cleveland, OH the 80's baby who now goes by Nova The Rebel, started out at the age of 7 just rapping and freestyling, making little low quality tapes on his karaoke machine.

So this guy is doing things and is really poised to take off at this point!
Nova The Rebel has enormous swagger, combined with a witty sense of humor but realistic music. He has got a knack for creating choruses and always writes his own music. In 2010, the 26 year old feels that he knows so much more about promotion and all around business and most definitely feels that he wants to take advantage of that at this point. If you get anything from Nova's music, you realize his message is for you to be you, make sure that you're a leader and to enjoy your life but protect what's yours as well.
I think it's time for the world to see what they've been missing.
