Born into a legacy of music it was destiny for Soul Nana to pursue
a career writing,producing, and performing. The son of the
internationally known Ghanaian drummerRim Kwaku Obeng,
Soul Nana was nurtured at a young age by musical greats like
Fela Kuti, Osibisa, and Lumumba.
Not long after immigrating with his parents to the United States,
Soul Nana was immersed in the genres of Funk, Soul, Jazz,
and eventually Hip Hop. Building upon a solid musical foundation
and blessed with his mother’s work ethic, Soul Nana was signed to Coolio and
managed by Paul Stewart in 1994. During this time Soul Nana worked
with Montell Jordan, Xzibit, Jimmy Cliff, the late Oji Pierce.
In 2000 Soul Nana made his transition to music production By 2004 his first
placement “Lots of Girls” featuring Spragga Benz became the official first single for Slip
N Slide artist Don Yute. After winning the 2007 Sha Money XL Beat Battle in Phoenix
Arizona, Soul Nana went on to work with Rayven Simone, Jodeci, The Cheetah Girls,
Keith Robinson, Anjulie, Nikki Grier, Busta Rhymes, Maino, and many others.
Nana continues to hone and develop his production skills. Like those who influenced him,
he is never satisfied. It is that very same commitment and passion that has recently drawn
him back to the desire to perform. Soul Nana has diligently worked on his delivery and lyrical
acumen in order to honor his rich musical heritage, making clear his determination for excellence
on both sides of the microphone.
Soul Nana’s sound pulls from the vast well of his past experiences fusing Pop, Hip Hop,
R&B/Soul, Rock, Dance, and Reggae with traditional African vibrations.
