The Nefarius “Tough Dumplin (Foundation for better Beats)” was one of the best underground hip hop EP’s to come out of Toronto Canada in the late 1990’s. Nefarius’ demo recording ‘You Can’t Handle The Truth’ dissed Maestro and others by name. The classic Nefarius’ track ‘Pondering’ talks about needing a pillow when listening to most Canadian artists. Explosive freestyles and dramatic beats drew considerable attention through out Canada and parts of the USA, but it was their penchant for saying what’s on their minds that really earned Nefarius their name.
