Nick Varcity has picked up where he has left off at from his prior EP Cashmere Thoughts. A smooth sound, undoubted confidence and motivation runs rampant through Louis The Thirteenth and I love it!. With a mix of tracks produced by Detroit’s Lord Scum, Flyboi J and a few more Nick has put together something sophisticated that my iTunes has been yearning for. There’s a few songs, like High Mileage for example, where he sneaks in a line or two of something familiar and throws his own style on it. Over all if you want something mature (“mature” as in something that I can whole heartedly relate to) then this is an ideal EP to download. - Aoimani, Blogger/Creator from AO Marker Blog

 Nick Varcity is a hip hop artist who grew up in the projects of Detroit, MI. This is where he would discover rap music and the art of hip hop. At only 7 years old, he diligently followed a local group who named themselves “D.R.U.G.Z.”, standing for Detroit Real Underground G’s. The group was reluctant to let him participate. Despite his efforts, they turned him away due to his age. He quickly turned his rejection into motivation. Motivated to create his own lane, he decided to go home and write his own freestyles. These were the first moments where he real- ized that writing came naturally to him and he was confident that he was destined for more.

As an artist, he has a wide variety of musical influences. They include Jay Z, Bob Dylan, and Marvin Gaye. He looks up to how these three men carry themselves as a whole. Their overall presence is inspiring and motivating. He admires Jay Z for his business mindset and how he always seems to be one step ahead of the game. He accredits Bob Dylan as one of the great- est writers and lyricists to date. He mirrors the energy and feeling Marvin Gaye puts into his music. As he continues to discover himself as an artist, he works to embody these traits as well.

Nick has consistently put out music throughout the years while traveling to promote his sound. His passion was ignited when he recorded his first record. He soon realized that he had a fu- ture in this industry. He took his talents to SXSW and the Toronto music festival NXNE in 2015. He has always been in love with making music and putting creative content into the world. He recorded his first project in 2010 and has released ten different projects since then; including, Louie the 13th, Avid Listener 1 and 2, and his most recent release, the Bon Voyage EP in 2018.

His next release, an EP titled ‘Conflicted’ is set to drop in the summer of 2019. He’s working on this project with notorious production team, The Olympiks. During the creation process he loves feeding off the energy of the producers; the environment is set when they begin to work and he hears a beat for the first time. From his upcoming project we can expect balance and unique lyricism. Feeding off the fact that he is a gemini, he is portraying two different sides of the game. The title of the project is fitting, because he transitions from the playing off the con- ditions of his upbringing to higher levels of consciousness. He walks a thin line between the two and has found ways to do it that resonate with a variety of people.

Nick is motivated by the younger generation. The kids from the neighborhood he grew up in view him as inspiration. He gives them hope for better days and a brighter future. They support him and in turn he wants to continue to give back and motivate the youth to be great. It is im- portant to him for people to know that he will always remain true to himself through his journey towards success. He loves his craft and is extremely passionate about the work he creates. He is the culture and is for the culture.
