Nothing but REAL music. I write it myself and produce it myself

Biography

Nikko is one of the most significant and dominant musicians to emerge within the last 10 years of Hip Hop music. A true self-entity. Like Dr. Dre and Kanye West before him, Nikko is a producer, writer, and rapper all in one. The total package. His music is so important because it symbolizes the new sound of the south. Being born and raised in Gulfport, Mississippi, Nikko is quite simply a product of the south. It almost seems as if he was raised by the streets, with his mother being hip-hop and his father being the cold avenues of the Gulf Coast. Also a talented athlete, Nikko has always been a popular figure in his area. At an early age, he decided to give up a career in sports for a career in music. Growing up around negative figures with positive 'figgas' (i.e. D-Boyz or drug dealers) he developed a sense of style that can never be duplicated. As far as rapping goes, Nikko has always been one for dominance. Armed with a voice and style that are incomparable, he has an undeniable presence on the microphone. Although Nikko is a shining lyricist, producing is probably his most decorated asset. Nikko's beats are a reflection of himself... Flashy, brash, and unapologetic. His beats are so unique, they have been nicknamed the '2010 synthesized bounce'. The beats are ahead of their time, futurisic, and once again, the new sound of the south. With Nikko being such a good lyricist and producer, it's almost impossible to distinguish which one he enjoys most. Only comparable to that of Kanye West right now, he has earned the nickname 'Kanye South'. Nikko's most famous attribute may be being apart of the G.P.T. Boys. Being 1/3 of the supergroup composed of Tito Lopez and SiNCERE has given him that extra edge that many artists don't have. He takes his flashy sound and style and brings it to the group, producing and creating a unique format for the group as a collective. The G.P.T. Boys embodie all three facites of hip-hop, which makes them the ultimate group. "The New Breed" if you will. Tito Lopez provides the (G)angsta element, Nikko provides the (P)imp element, and SiNCERE brings you the (T)ruth. All 3 have chosen to pass on solo records for the moment, and work on an upcoming group album. Learn more about the G.P.T. Boys at www.myspace.com/thegptboys and request their new single "Better Than You", produced by Nikko himself. ..
