"LISTEN NOW: NIQUE’S “F#@K (ONE TIME)”"

Nah, that’s not Kendrick Lamar or Andre 3000. It’s Nique.

Houston rapper Nique has been racking up his content, waiting for the right moment to unleash it into the world. Currently preparing his forthcoming EP for release later this year, Nique releases the first track, “F#@ck (One Time).” His style is reminiscent of a smooth fusion between Andre 3000 and Kendrick Lamar on this one, and it’s a great teaser track, as we’re definitely looking forward to hearing more from Nique. -


"#ThePulse: Listen to Nique’s “6 AM” Mixtape"

This morning, Houston artist Nique released his much anticipated project 6 AM. Luckily, we had the luxury of digesting the project for a couple of days and, it only gets better.

6 AM consists of just 9 tracks yet, nothing is lacking. With a combination of lyrical mastery and straight Houston, drank induced greatness, there is something for every type of fan; yet the entire project is still impressively cohesive. Whether it be young, unapologetic bravado or darker realism, one thing is evident-Nique can rap his ass off. Tracks like “Thank God” followed by “Everything/Bag Flow II” showcase Nique’s ability to provide strictly bars, good ones. Of course, there’s some singing and stunting for the ladies, namely on “Keep It Jumpin'” and “High Rise”; and we aren’t mad at it at all. Then there is the interlude, called “Struggle Rapper”. Between the comedy of the content and the fact that the singing feels like Billy Cook is responsible for it, this interlude is still hilarious 2 days later. “Forget About It” and “The Depression” highlight a totally different side of Nique. Lyrically, they address Nique’s personal struggles and prove his versatility as an artist. No matter what he is rapping about, it sounds good.

Another impressive element of 6 AM is the overall quality, not only lyrically but production wise as well. Produced primarily by LexiBanks and Nique himself, with help from Richie Rich and Chemist, every track incorporates the same level of high quality sound. All these factors lend themselves to a very well-rounded and honestly, really fun project. Nique has something, he is definitely an artist to keep your antennas up for.

"VIDEO: NIQUE – HIGH RISE"

Nique is a Houston native who both raps and produces his own material. Today we get the official visual for “High Rise,” the lead single off his most recent mixtape “6 AM.” Check it out below. -


"Houston’s Nique Returns with New Single, “Yes! Yes! Yes!”"

Hailing out of Houston, 21-year old Nique is trying to carve his own path, and his first steps lead to the next few weeks filled with new content featuring artists like Larry June, Sauce Twinz, Lil Keke etc. and a new project set to drop before year’s end. Today, he brings “Yes! Yes! Yes! - @Ellhah


"Nique: “The Summer”"

While winter is still clearly in the air, that doesn’t mean we have given into the cold, who’s to say we can’t start getting ready for the summer. That’s exactly what Texas emcee Nique is here to do with his single “The Summer“.

In a climate of under 32 degrees, chilling winds and the inevitable blizzard right around the corner, Nique warms us up with this banger. We’ve been working so hard at the top of the year, Nique is helping us to let go of our sorrows and pain from the past year and celebrate what’s to come. Nique has a small hook in the middle of the joint, but for the most part, the Texas emcee is spitting all the way through the three minute cut. You can peep the cut below and get ready for Nique’s EP “2018” set to be released on April 6th. - Michael Stover


"Nique’s Flow is Colder Than Ever on “The Summer”"

With a new EP on the way, Houston emcee Nique brings “The Summer” just before the winter ends.
As far as good years go, Nique may have had a better 2017 than most. The Houston-hailing rapper and brand ambassador for White x Gold dropped three solid projects, including his ‘WTF is Going On’ album. He gave the songs he dropped memorable visuals, as well, from the trippy camera in “Sunnyside Zoo” to the Houston homages within “Keep It Jumping.”

Nique’s level of energy may be at a higher level than ever in 2018. The emcee has cut his locks and began the year teasing his new music to come. Nique’s snippet of “Thug N*gga” alone has found plenty of replay on Twitter. But on Monday, Nique shared his first release of the new year. It’s called “The Summer,” and it’s the first single off his upcoming ‘2018’ EP.

Body-rocking beats are a hallmark of Nique’s style, but “The Summer” is leaps and bounds the rapper’s most radio-ready single ever. Snares and a thumping instrumental give “The Summer” the feel of a gritty symphony, Nique’s flow stepping between the beat over the track’s three-minute length. Nique insisting that “You won’t catch me catching my breath,” on the song’s pre-hook isn’t just a reference to rapper’s delivery on the song itself. It’s a promise that Nique’s intensity isn’t going anywhere for the next eleven months.

Bio

Dominique Lamar Greene, known professionally as Nique, is an American rapper, songwriter and producer. Born and raised in the southeast Houston community of Sunnyside (South Acres), Nique fell in love with hip hop at a very early age. Influenced by Tupac, Outkast and Lil Wayne, he started recording music at the tender age of 8 years old, when his older brothers gave him the name, Nique. A standout student-athlete , Nique attended Florida State his freshman year before transferring to Howard University. Though he was an honor student with a 4.0 GPA, Nique dropped out of Howard in 2015 after battling depression and his burning desire to perform. He, then, immediately dropped his first mixtape “6 AM." Following the sudden and untimely death of his brother Xavier in 2016, Nique released his first EP “Dazed and Confused,” which saw the artist take a darker approach to his music. In the summer of 2017, Nique was signed to OneFammMusic Group/Sony Music and has been covered by The Source, WorldStar Hip Hop, SayCheese and Houston Press. Nique’s music style is undoubtedly southern while still being lyrical and introspective. His raspy voice has a southern twang that pairs well with his laid back flow. The content in Nique’s music ranges from his battles with depression, anxiety, and PTSD to drugs, money, and women. In March of 2019, Nique released his EP "Best In Houston," which found him claiming himself as the best rapper in his city. Ultimately, the Houston rapper remains true to himself.
