N.I.F.T.Y.: The Candidate

N.I.F.T.Y.: The Preface EP


Feeling a bit camera shy


N.I.F.T.Y. (Nubian Intelligence From The Yahweh) is entirely about maximum effort for ultimate results. Work is almost as natural as breathing it has been the foundation of his whole young life.

'I grew up watching my mother work 12 hour shifts on a daily basis, I thought that was normal. When other kids told me their parents worked for 8 hours I thought they were strange! (laughs)'

The Toronto native can proudly boast of his multiple award nominations, his tireless tours across the continent, numerous television appearances and impressive tracks that have charted as high as number 2 on Canadian radio. All with good reason; he has accomplished this with merely a 6-track EP, and more importantly, all before a record deal. One might well ask, how was all this possible? The answer is immediate and absolute N.I.F.T.Y.s drive is unquestionable. He worked 3 part time jobs while attending university to fund his music and single-handedly released his EP, which went on to sell over 2000 copies.
