This week we have Nokio from the legendary R&B group Dru Hill on the SoulBack podcast. This is a very exciting guest because he's one of the most knowledgeable artists in the game. Along with his production behind the scenes, he actually worked as an A&R for Trey Songz and helped develop his career early on, so we get to hear some label insight from him. Along with that, we talk about new music from Bobby V and Ro James. We also talk about Nokio's journey in the music industry from the group's work with Keith Sweat to their big singles on various movie soundtracks. We also touch on the Bruno Mars topic that was trending on Twitter last week. Check us out!
