[HARLEM, NEW YORK] After a bit of a hiatus, Charlie Domino makes his return on NikkiSiixx with his single SUNSHINE. Spending his life in the inner city of New York, you just look for better days until you hear them gun shots. SUNSHINE definitely provides hope through a terrible situation. Charlie Domino had spent some time in Atlanta and as an artist and as a person he was able to reconnect with his soul. After debuting his first solo project Slay Dat Beat Vol.1, Charlie is working hard in finalizing his second project entitled Domino3ffect. The hook is crazy and insanely catchy. You can hear through Charlie Domino’s voice he’s speaking from the heart. And listen to his story through SUNSHINE.
[NASHVILLE,TN] ShaManic may not seem to be your ordinary rapper, but as soon as you close your eyes and listen, you feel it. ShaManic recently released his music video for his track MINDLESS. Capturing the moments where he felt the system failed him by a misdiagnosis, that lead him to stay in a mental institution. Through this difficult time the sound of hip-hop kept him grounded. MINDLESS imagery is with classic psychedelic’s and inspiration from the movie Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, really gives it a lot of depth. The visual is super trippy! ShaManic flow reminds me of a young Slim Shady. MINDLESS is off his album The Artist. Be on the lookout for future releases from ShaManic.
“One of the things that really drew me to hiphop and rap is that it’s so focused on the words. I’ve been into poetry my whole life and this allowed me to combine poetry, music and storytelling into a single art form. -ShaManic”

During this interview we go over his eighth mixtape ‘We Aint Hurtin‘, his inspirations, fans, features, and how he feels about his recent move to the Sunny State of Florida.
NIKKISIIXX: If you were to look in the mirror. What would you tell the person in the reflection regarding your current circumstance with your music career.
B2DADOT: I would tell my reflection we have come so far, but there is still more work to be done.
NIKKISIIXX: On your mixtape ‘We Aint Hurtin’ you have two infamous features on it. Rick Ross and French Montana. How was it working with them? Did they give you any advice?
B2DADOT: The thing now with music is that everyone is so busy nowadays and touring and doing shows that it is hard to get in the studio with artist and create. So most of my bigger features get emailed to me.
NIKKISIIXX: What was your inspiration with your track PAIN IN A GLASS featuring Javonna?
B2DADOT: Pain In A Glass is kinda how I deal with life. Whether a long week, stress or whatever I always pour me up a drink (preferably Ciroc). Pain In A Glass was also the first record I ever opened up to my fans about my father committing suicide. It took me almost three years to put that on a record.
NIKKISIIXX: You were born and raised from Wilmington Delaware, and recently moved down to Miami, Florida. Any pros and cons to your relocation?
B2DADOT: Moving to Miami was way better for my career. Anyone who is someone in music, comes through Miami almost on the regular. So it was just a better overall move for me. Plus the weather is great. I think everyone is snowed in back in Delaware. Lol
NIKKISIIXX: You have about 19 Thousand Followers on Twitter? How does that make you feel? & how do you interact with you’re followers?
B2DADOT: It makes me feel great. I love my fans. They are very interactive on twitter. At the end of the day I am still a fan of music. So the things I wish artist did for the fans are things I try to implement with my fans & be as interactive as possible so even though we are miles away they can still feel apart of my day to day.
NIKKISIIXX: Any Last Words?
B2DADOT: Be on the lookout for my debut album entitled “Better Than Good”. Also download my single “She Bad” on itunes right now. Lastly, be on the lookout for my first book entitled “Priorites”.
