Nation GVNG (PR the Great, BLACK, BIGSPITGAME, Scorcese Lorde Jones) - Nation GVNG
The Nation of Domination were a wrestling faction made up of the first ever Black NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Ron Simmons, along with Kama Mustafa, D’Lo Brown, and Ahmed Johnson/The Rock/Etc.

With the success of our DOMINVTION EP (2020), we are proud to present our official album, NATION GVNG.
Featuring New Jersey MC PR the Great (All Live hosted by DJ Kay Slay) along with Philly MC’s BLACK (Harlem Heat), BIGSPITGAME (Black Superhero Music) and Scorcese Lorde Jones (Dream Team, Midnight Express), this four man project is an exploration of black pride, wealth, and standing in your truth.
We hope everyone who listens to this project is able to find an escape.
