Notar & The Devil's Playground
Thursday, December 01, 2011

When rock and hip-hop come together it rarely pleases both audiences. Either the rock audience is left feeling like the band was an afterthought, or the hip-hop audience is disappointed by the lyrical prowess of the emcee. Notar is shattering all of that with his debut album, Devil’s Playground, which manages to be both 100% rock and 100% hip-hop. It’s also 100% intense.

Originally from Connecticut, but now a New York City resident, Notar honed his lyrical skills at some of NYC’s toughest freestyle events – Freestyle Mondays and End of the Weak. After a friend of his played his demo for Adam Duritz, the Counting Crows lead singer signed Notar to his label, Tyrannosaurus Records, which is what Devil’s Playground was released on in September.

On the heels of the release of the album I caught up with Notar to find out more about his music, the NHL locker rooms it’s playing in, and the ways in which he hopes it inspires people. He also opened up about the large role religion plays in his life, and how he managed to personally kick someone out of his album release party without anyone noticing.
