[BRONX, NY] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artist Arkadian. With his latest single BOUNCE. Bounce is a trap/club track that discusses the different types of things you like to enjoy. According to Arkadian he says “the struggle that you see around the world in the hoods, not just people of color meaning brown, black, tan, he wants people to see THE STRUGGLE because that is what we all got no matter what level we are at in the world we know today as the land of the free”.
Here’s a little bit of history on Arkadian, he had to get major spine surgery due to fighting for our freedom with the U.S. Army. He had to get eight screws and two 4-inch rods in his back & with the time that heís been recovering and watching how the country he fought for is turning upside down. This inspired him to pick up the pen and write down what he truly felt. This helped him reflect on his life, growing up as a soldier, and chilling in his hood while stationed at Fort Bragg N.C and Fort Hamilton NY.
If you’re diggin’ BOUNCE make sure to listen to it on either Spotify or Tidal! And don’t forget to show your support by following him below:
[CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, Producer iLLie Nelson (Originating from Queens, NY) with his beat entitled KINGS. This is actually his first Electronic Hip-Hop beat from his Beat Tape “No More Lights“. iLLie Nelson provides an energizing summer anthem with KINGS.
This beat/vibe is perfect for just listening to it from the gym, your car, the club, your home, a house party. It kinda reminds me of playing Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core on the PSP. That electronic uplifting sound brings me back to the countless hours playing it. This beat is entertaining on its own. Definitely playing this on repeat! You should purchase the full beat tape on iTunes and Listen on Spotify for free!
[FARMINGDALE, NEW YORK] Inspiring Hip-Hop artist SEYI brings us his latest track called SIPPIN TEA. The track also features fellow Farmingdale State College Student Matt Patick. SIPPIN TEA will be on SEYI next mixtape N>I>B. This track fits well with that summer time, all around good vibes. SIPPIN TEA is a popular reference of Kermit the Frog’s MEME of him sipping tea and looking in the other direction. It says But That’s None Of My Own Business. I feel that inspired the title to this song and also the attitude. SEYI see’s that if you’re not putting in work, his going to work even harder. Sweet beat produced by Amir S, all the way from Canada. Be on the look out for SEYI’s upcoming mixtape N>I>B and don’t forget to follow him on TWITTER.
[QUEENS, NEW YORK] Cash Sinatra is bringing us that fire with his latest EP titled Nineteen 90 Somethin. For Us 90′ Kids we’re going to really vibe out to this one. Classic Tracks over very familiar R&B instrumentals from the 90’s and re-touched by 2015 flavor. Ranging from Blackstreet, Aaliyah, R.Kelly, and Ghost town DJs. Nineteen 90 Somethin was inspired by his track One In A Million inspired by Aaliyah’s smooth rhythm. Off of his eight track EP my favorite tracks off of the Nineteen 90 Somethin are Doo-Wop, Color Me Lit, IDLY II, One In A Million, Think Of You, and No Diggity. Cash Sinatra has improved tremendously from the last time we featured him in 2011. He sounds more confident on this type of production. Cash has been busy lately, from performing on DJ Envy’s “Follow The Flow” and being apart of The Source Unsigned Hype & Cypher. Also, be on the look out for new visuals off of the Nineteen 90 Somethin EP and don’t forget to follow Cash Sinatra on all his social media accounts.

Steve Gunna is a hip hop artist from the Bronx, NY. He released his own visual to his single L.O.S.T. Even though Gunna can created his own production before, this time he decided to take on a beat by SeriousBeats. Creating a song that is very introspective over a soulful beat. L.O.S.T was taken in one consecutive shot while Steve Gunna is driving around and venting to the passenger (the viewer/listener) about his feelings on the state of hip hop. Expressing through his wittiness, he places a strong emphasis on his lyrical content. The visual is presented to us in black and white, with some of Steve’s lyrics popping up here and there throughout the video. Currently, Steve Gunna is working on newer content to give to his fans. Be on the look out!

This video was sent from NikkiSiixx favorite AWKWORD, and as one would expect from such a heady artist, it does not disappoint. Broadway Barrett has a strictly New York aura and a roughneck style that comes through in spades. The old Neil Young sample sets the tone of a man pursuing his passion. You get the feel that hip hop is this dude’s anchor, his outlet, his sunrise. There is something to be said for the die hard’s, the lifers that are in the game for the passion, for the art, not the likes or props that come with the stigma of being a rapper. Sometimes it really is in your blood. Barrett is technically sound with his flow and he seems to string words and metaphors together with ease. If “In My Blood” is the initial offering from Without Further Adieu, then you should be eager to see what the entire project brings to the table.
Brooklyn Artist, Model, Entertainer, Songwriter, and Actress Tamara Bubble releases a track off her latest EP “Living It Up“. Tamara Bubble keeps busy with all these attributes for her career. Tamara discusses the pressure of temptation and infidelity. Even if it’s easy or convenient to cheat, Tamara sends a sweet reminder that it’s better to remain faithful. With JUST SAY NO. I really love Tamara’s voice! Dropping melodies and harmonies over the amazing production by @KrazyFigz. Don’t forget to listen to her entire EP Living It Up via iTunes.

We have seen a lot of new, experimental New York rappers over the last few years gain national, and even global attention. A handful of Beast Coast artists are making some noise in hip-hop, such as the Pro Era collective, Flatbush Zombies, and The Underachievers. New York may arguably have the most interesting underground music scene right now, other than Chicago of course. You have rappers like Bobby Shmurda and Dillion Cooper, both coming out of New York.
Brooklyn hip-hop group, The Lost Souls have the potential to be next to blow up. These guys ride boom bap sounds effortlessly and typically spit over beats reminiscent of the “good ol’ days” in music. The Lost Souls are simply 90’s kids adding their own flavor to a sound and style that is constantly being innovated. The set consists of a twins Fresh Costello and BG Fire and their producer NickFRSH. With their latest offering “Ain’t Worried Bout’ Nun” The Lost Souls share their focus and life lessons, all while flexing their lyrical ability and rapid flow. The visual shows the young MCs walking through their neighborhood and wild n’ out with friends. Check it out below!

Jazzy Jah has arrived to NikkiSiixx.com with a freestyle visual Anti Freeze. This is his version of the jam originally from the totally dope Pac Div. I’m not really a super fan of freestyles, as they definitely have a shorter shelf life. But this one made me want to turn up, that’s why its here. Jazzy Jah is a Queens,NY native now rocking with the Miami underground scene. We are looking forward to more from the fashionably forward emcee.

Check out a live performance from The White House Band at Crash Mansion in New York back in October. The White House Band consists of 4 members; David E. Beats (leading vocals) Cory Lonas (bass) Fernando Martinez (guitarist) and Elder Merchant (drums). I found this footage and I wanted to share with you the rawness that The White House Band delivers. They’ve created their own genre which is a combination of Rap+Hard Rock+Blues= Ideal! This allows my inner rocker to enjoy some rap lyrics. Would love to watch this band live in Miami!
