[CALIFORNIA] Releasing his second single off GIRLIE MAGAZINES his newly released album COVERUPS by hip-hop artist The Wilde. The track empathizes the opportunities of giving people second chances. Hoping the best will come back once more. The Wilde discusses his first love, summer nights, first heartbreaks, and Warped Tour. I really like how the track was fused from “A Lack of Color” by Death Cab for Cutie and “Against the Bottom” by Grieves. Dope track! Stay tuned from more from The Wilde and don’t forget to check out his new album COVERUPS.

In this case, are they just calling him cause his balling now? It don’t matter to Caine, cause he’s living his life to the fullest, without the need to be tied down. Enjoy SUMMER NIGHTS and don’t forget to press repeat.
[LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com we have hip-hop artist Amiel Divine with his latest single MAKE IT HAPPEN. Growing up Amiel Divine was influenced by 90s artist since his father used to tour with NWA and Eazy E back in the 80s. He was able to sit in on studio sessions and really learned from hands on experience. It was bound in his destiny to go after his own dream of becoming a hip-hop artist. Currently, Amiel Divine is signed by West Coast Active-Recording Label Quality Dubs.
[FUN FACT] Amiel Divine’s debut CD A Work In Progress was produced by KP, who is Bruno Mars’ ex-drummer. MAKE IT HAPPEN lets the listener know that he’s willing to do whatever he has to make it happen. I like the production and how Amiel Divine makes the track his own with his vocals and lyrics.

[LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA] On this mixtape review we are debuting Dork/Gamer/Hip-Hop-Nerdcore Producer/Artist and Writer NonSenze with his latest mixtape GAMEDORK: Eat Sleep Kill Robots. One thing that really stands out about NonSenze is his inspiration for his music, from 80’s /90’s Hip-Hop, Rock, R&B, old-school video games, zombie flicks, marijuana, movies & basically all things that are apart of the geek culture. While growing up in the era of Hip-Hop, where it was extremely important to sound original. Nonsenze tried to utilize what he’s learned from the greats of the past and present, to attempt to inspire future artist to find that spark of creativity.
Part 1 of 2 mixtapes, GAMEDORK: Eat Sleep Kill Robots has eighteen tracks. All titled with tracks inspired from his passed from video games, movies, and moments. Let’s see what I think about Nonsenze’s project with my review.
[01. I LOVE GOLD] Starting off the mixtape, we have a very familiar sample in the hook. Remember in the Austin Powers movie, the Mike Myers character Goldmember yelling “I Love Gold“. One thing that I find to be really makes the track stand out is Nonsenze’s flow, it really just entices you to listen more. Nonsenze is also very witty with his lyrics.
[03. DEAR PRINCESS] I really like the 8-bit retro gaming production on this track. Nonsenze and featured artist My Purple Monkey go in-depth with their story-telling on their adventure to go and save Princess Peach. I love the Super Mario samples and references. Nonsenze gets romantic on this one.
[05. FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S] Even though I’ve never seen or played Five Nights At Freddys, but I’m very familiar with how popular it is. I decided to look it up and Five Nights at Freddy’s, is a point-and-click survival mystery horror video game created by Scott Cawthon. That sounds pretty badass, and Nonsenze opened the door to this video game. In the track he describes how long his shift will be (level), trying to survive the game seems intense. I love the hook! It’s extremely catchy!
[07. IM FLOATING] This track is dope, it reminds me of a mix of Gym Class Heroes with a dash of Outkast. Nonsenze is so descriptive with his story-telling. I can visualize everything he mentions. Nonsenze talks about how his floating alone and in his own element. I really like his flow on this one.
[08. GOTTA CATCH EM’ ALL] If it’s not obvious, this track is about Pokemon. The production brings a dark element to the track while Nonsenze mentions a list of Pokemon he’s attempting to catch. Searching for Pokemon has become an epidemic since it’s taking over Nonsenze’s reality. Who can blame him? I feel the same way… How many Pokemon does Nonsenze mention on this track?
[12. SUPER NINTENDO] How can you not like this track? Nonsenze goes in with the Biggie Sample of Super Nintendo Sega Genesis! I like the switch up from the original track. Nonsenze video game references are on point. He talks about eating weak rappers like Kirby.
[14. SHOVEL CROSS] I like how this track isn’t really about video games. I feel Nonsenze really opens up on this track. He even mentions how he feels about his dads passing. How he feels about rappers who can’t cut it. And how can I not catch The Flash references in the hook regarding Barry Allen’s speed. ⚡️ (Geeked Out, Huge Fan of The Flash Here). The track also features hip-hop artist Geoh. I found this track to be a dope listen and something you can vibe too!
[17. WELCOME TO THE SURFACE] Nonsenze brings to life what life is like on the surface. Unfortunately it’s not the paradise you’ll think of. It’s more like the struggle and the misinformed following along without thinking the consequences. I really get a Kanye West vibe on this one. This is the eye opener track.
This concludes my review of Nonsenze’s mixtape GameDork: Eat Sleep Kill Robots (Part 1). Out of the 18 Track project, I was able to breakdown the ones I found to really stand out to me. I find Nonsense’s music is for everyone, but is the perfect backdrop for skateparks, Adult Swim randomness, video games, stoner activities and so much more.
Stay tuned on NikkiSiixx.com where we will be going in on GAMEDORK: Eat Sleep Kill Zombies another mixtape brought to you by Nonsenze! This kid stays busy besides making music, he also has his own Youtube Channel dedicated to gaming! Make sure you subscribe and follow up with Nonsenze on all his social media links below:

[LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artist Fresco with his latest single WISHING ON A STAR. Fresco isn’t just your regular artist, he’s also a songwriter, model, and actor. I really like how melodic Fresco can get on the track. You’ll be able to find WISHING ON A STAR on Fresco’s upcoming debut project “ZONEXI“.
The debut will consist of two visual EP’s that portray paradoxical and relatable themes and showcase Fresco’s numerous artistic strengths. Expect in Early Spring of 2017, dope music videos and some projects. Within a few years, he was involved in many music videos and projects for major artists, including Chris Brown, Calvin Harris, Kid Ink, and his first artistic influence, Lil Wayne. Some of Fresco’s greatest creative and entrepreneurial influences include Kanye West, Drake, and Floyd Mayweather.
I like how Fresco choice in production, which is from producer Bruce24kk. And how he carries himself throughout the track. If you’re diggin’ WISHING ON A STAR as much as I am, make sure you let Fresco know.

CHALK TALK produced by Dreamlife, recorded at Expressions, Emeryville and was Mixed and mastered by DopeDee.
According to Tone Famous: “Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. Follow your instincts and live in the present because you can’t control anything other than what you’re doing right now.

I would like to start this new segment here on NikkiSiixx.com, it’s called SUPER GIRL SPOTLIGHT. Here’s where I’m giving the true super girls a spotlight where they can let their true talents shine. Our first feature brings us AILAWISHES from AILAWISHES.COM. She’s a bright light when it comes to bringing her projects to life. Ailawishes tells us her super moves when it comes to being a songwriter, screenwriter, aspiring actress, and artist development/management. Being able to maintain it all, Ailawishes takes our Super Girl Spotlight and here’s her biography to get to know her story:
“I discovered my talent when I was 13 years of age. I used to compose hip-hop verses yet never imparted them to anybody in light of my timid emotional disposition. In the wake of graduating school, I appropriated a call, being a yearning model in Hollywood, California who educated herself and became an on-screen character by the name of Brandon Hammond, from Soul Food. I was intrigued by directing a short film that I had written three years back. Excited by the opportunity, I sent her initially my finished motion picture script, Ex-Boyfriend, to Hammond. Sending my work for review, motivated myself to take my writing to a much higher platform. Its no big surprise I had such capable genes as the late extraordinary Dizzy Gillespie is my great-uncle.
In 2001, I began working for a record label where I found myself in artist development. My roster included managing R&B and Hip-hop groups. This opportunity allowed me to gain experience in the marketing field through club promotions and learn the business at an early age. I was so serious about my position and my artist, that the radio stations gave me the nickname “Ms Shugg“.
In 2009, I chose to distribute Floetic Whispers and received great reviews. Some came from big names in the entertainment/music business. After the book release, I was contacted by A&R for Columbia Records. They approached me to compose for one of their R&B singers Adina Howard. Since, I have been writing on an upcoming album for an R&B artists signed to rapper THE GAME’s label.
I have written a children’s book, Heaven’s Library Journey, and began a Non-Profit Organization, A-Kidz Wishes, to push ability in low-wage neighborhoods. I happened to offer many books around the U.S., furthermore encompassing nations. Furthermore, I have several other books that are available now. In July 2013, iNote Publishing has started. –AilaWishes”
