NTL is a rap-crew from Novosibirsk, Russia, formed in the year of 2000 by Jerry. Initially, the group started with three guys who had studied together and had the same music interests: Jerry, Lyoha, and Den. Jerry, who had little experience in rap, suggested that they form a group; it was then the name "NTL" came. Their first performance took place at their school. Their song was about classmates and was read to one of Dr. Dre's mixes.
