Ned Miller is not your typical rapper, he is a visionary artist, painting vivid pictures with his lyrics. At 14 years of age, Ned began listening to various songs in the alternative rock genre, which played a major part in his style of rap. Ned recalls watching songs & videos on VH1. He would remix the songs he heard, putting his own style to it, rapping about his life. The Greensboro native formed his very own production company, Modal Vibes in 2016 with his co-founder, Trey Flowers. When asked about the name, he says, “I thought of the name Modal Vibes. I was searching for a word that explains while we make music. Modal as a collective, create music based off raw emotions. We consider that the vibe, not just any vibe, a Modal Vibe. We want you to feel our music and catch a vibe. Capture your mind, body & soul.” The two have worked together on quite a few projects, including Ned’s newest single titled “No Love” which was produced by Trey Flowers. When you listen to his music, you immediately think of the backpack rappers. His musical inspirations include Jay-Z, NERD, Kanye West & of course Tyler The Creator. At an early age, after watching Bow Wow on television, he knew he wanted to pursue music as a career. Who knew that Ned Miller would be the rapper he is today? The rapper recalls being surprisingly quiet at times, but would often get into trouble during his school days. His new single “No Love” is very straight forward. After coming home from a long day’s work his producer Trey was at his place working on some new beats. He played the beat for “No Love” & Ned loved it the minute he heard it. In fact, everyone around loved the track and wanted to rap on it as well, but the rapper had different plans. The rapper worked on the song for two days, writing, arranging. He even mixed and mastered the track himself. Ned wanted to be as creative as possible with this track, after Trey Flowers made the beat from scratch, Ned took it from there. He created the entire song, even designed the cover art.
The single “No Love” is available now on iTunes.
