ReddRoxx Rundown: Nesto is making his presence known
blog by Maria Redd • September 04, 2012 @ 11:59pm
Meet Nesto—born Ernest Lee Wright, Jr.—a dynamic young artist from Buffalo. He used music as therapy to escape the pain of losing his mother at the age of 12. He felt music was his calling in high school and started his own music group and program called I.M.A.G.E (Individuals Motivated Against Gang Environment), a collective that saw some limited out-of-town success.
Inspired, Nesto branched out from I.M.A.G.E at the age of 19 and embarked on a solo career. He has concentrated on mixtapes and recently signed to Nickel City Records, who released his debut album, Earning Respect. Check it out at DatPiff.com. He is currently the number six-ranked Buffalo rapper on ReverbNation.com.
