Nigel “Legin” Anderson (pronounced like “legend” without the letter “d”) is an acclaimed hip-hop artist, husband, father, church leader, and community advocate. These attributions describe just a portion who he is, but all of them combined to spur the creation of Legin’s new EP In This Moment.
Earlier this year, Legin played an integral role in organizing a prayer march in his hometown of Norfolk, Virginia where more than 5,000 people came together following the death of George Floyd. It was in the time after the march in which the artist labored with friend and Grammy award winning artist Laquan Green to create In This Moment. The four songs on the EP encapsulate a depth of emotion and passion that has touched every member of society in recent days and years beyond. Described as a “personal and passionate musical response to racial injustice, political divisiveness, and disunity in the country,” Legin tells me he wants listeners of the EP to “go on a really brief rollercoaster of emotion.”
