[AUDIO] Uncle TreY – Mojo + Summer Love

[Monroe Country, PA] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have aspiring hip-hop artist Uncle TreY with two of his latest singles MOJO and JUST A SUMMER LOVE. This time I’ll be reviewing these tracks in this post. Both of these tracks can be found on Uncle TreY’s latest project nostalgianticipation, where you can find it available at ItsBetterThanMusic.com. Pretty dope that Gold Haze produced both of these tracks.


MOJO, is perfect for the summer time. Uncle TreY talks about how he got his confidence back. He tells us a story how things started and how it turns out, with a specific girl. And how they even try to come back in his life after so long of not communicating with them. The hook is catchy, and has me singing along.


SUMMER LOVE takes us back on a summer love he’s reminiscing about someone he hooked up with. Throughout the track Uncle TreY kinda focus on a specific listener, the one who he experienced that love affair with. Uncle TreY’s flow is on point and the content is very descriptive.

[MUSIC VIDEO] KonFiiDent – Schemin’


KonFiiDent[TORONTO] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artist KonFiiDent with his latest music video for his single SCHEMIN’. Nothing ends good when someone is scheming. KonFiiDent discusses the topic of envy and jealously. The video brings us a view from an outside perception of a relationship that seems all good until, the girl starts to become suspicious of KonFiiDent. Looking at his phone and putting it away and then she ends up finding an address. Only thinking of the worse she can’t help the curiosity and needs to confront KonFiiDent. I personally think the visual is too good to be this short! Be on the lookout for more content from Toronto’s own KonFiiDent. [FOLLOW HIM ON TWITTER]

[REVIEW] Austin Fillmore – Hear & Now EP


Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, Chicago native Austin Fillmore brings us his latest EP Hear & Now. The eight track project has some gems and I feel that Austin Fillmore is making his mark. Austin Fillmore grew an intense passion for music and once he hit 7th grade he embarked on developing and mastering his skill of rap. Once as an adult he began collaborating with long time friends and producers 12 tone and Hank Iving, later he dropped his debut LP Anglishh back in February 2014. The following year he released his sophmore project Sinful Nature in September 2015. And we have this year with his EP Hear & Now.

I’ll be reviewing my favorite tracks off Austin Fillmore EP Hear & Now. So far I like Good Times, 5000, Matrix, Me You And Trouble, P.V.O, and Running Sh%t. Here’s what I thought about the EP:

12670331_1035595663168802_4743312921333267569_n[01. GOOD TIMES] You know when you hear a single and you know it’s a hit? Well, I instantly felt this way when I heard GOOD TIMES by Austin Fillmore. Perfect choice to start off the EP. Austin has a positive aspect on life and it reflects itself in his music. From a dope flow and a catchy hook this one has to be a fan favorite.

[02. 5000] This track here is definitely the club banger! With heavy bass brought to you by the amazing production by Snapbackondatrack. Austin maintains his realness with his wholesomeness. All Austin wants everyone to be okay, no matter what they do or say.

[04. MATRIX] Here’s where Austin Fillmore and featured artist Joey G puts the listening in a trance, somewhat like the Matrix. Very powerful sounds by producer Hank Iving. I think its pretty unique to have a slow down trap vibe with a dash of pop to it. Not sure if I’m describing it accurately but that’s what I get from this track.

[05. ME, YOU, AND TROUBLE] Austin provides hypnotic melodies over the seductive production by Jasper MacRae. I’m debating wether of not the track is my favorite off the Hear & Now EP. Track for the hopeless romantic. In a relationship it may seem you have the world against you, but it doesn’t matter cause you have each other.

[06. P.V.O (Positive Vibes Only)] According to Austin Fillmore it’s all about the positive vibes. His flow is on point with the production by NobilityIam. I really like this hook, “Nothing in this life is free, I do this for you and me, It’s all real no make believe, I’m the only thing you need”. Austin Fillmore provides the right vibe on his Hear & Now EP.

[08. Running Sh%t (Owl Wanted)] On the last track Fillmore decided to show his rough side. Super tough on his lyrics and tone in his flow. You can say Austin was really confident on this track. I can see this being played in a club or house party setting. Like Let’s Get Crunk!

“I’m finally speaking on all the things in life that have meaning and furthermore, sometimes painful to express. – Austin Fillmore

LIVE PERFORMANCES:



This concludes my review of Hear & Now EP brought to you by Austin Fillmore. The overall vibe of this project is meant to put you in a good mood wether your at the club or chilling with your friends, or even having an intimate moment with your girl. Hear & Now is meant for the night owls. If you’re diggin’ Austin Fillmore’s EP as much as I am, make sure you show your support by following him on all his social media outlets below!

[ALBUM REVIEW] Dez Nado – LaDolceVita


[JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have inspiring artist Dez Nado with his latest album LaDolceVita! Dez Nado was able to bring a unique, politically/social conscious rap. When I first listened to this album, I felt he was speaking for the people who have dealt with heinous acts of violence because the difference in their skin color. All these injustices that led to the Black Lives Matter Movement.

What I really like about Dez Nado as an artist, he doesn’t rap the false pretenses of a rapper’s lifestyle. He’s more about bringing the light to all the darkness that’s plaguing our country. What’s also unique about Dez Nado he produces and stars in his own locally air cable reality TV series called “Life & Grind: Duval” (airs Sundays at 8pm on Bounce Network – Comcast 225/Digital 17-2). This Tv Series shines the spotlight on local talent here in Jacksonville, including himself, in addition to producing his own music.

dez nado ladolcevita promoLaDolceVita was featured on 360Magazine, Thisis50, Hip Hop Reviews 4D, and DownSouthHipHop. This time I’m going to have an in-depth review of LaDolceVita. My favorite tracks from Dez Nado’s album are LaDolceVita, Prelude 2 Revolution, American Dream, Duele, Luv The Way U Do, Fed Up, Pain, More 2 Life, and Immigrant Story. Check out what I thought about Dez Nado’s LaDolceVita:

[01. LADOLCEVITA] – What a way to introduce you to Dez Nado, from the triumphant sounding production and vocals by Jermeka Monae. This track is meant for the ones who work for what they want. All about the hard hustle and getting the deserving accomplishments. Enjoying life to the fullest with what you got and being appreciated. Great and positive energy that pours through the speakers.

[03. PRELUDE 2 REVOLUTON] Dez Nado puts together an interlude that has actual audio clips from Tupac talking about the Panthers and the government. Then an activist who supports Black Lives Matter and how they’re reacting to the un-justice for all the lives lost, and a very extremely powerful poetic spoken-word speech regarding all the violence that has been occurring through police brutality and voicing her right for her anger.
black-lives-matter

[04. AMERICAN DREAM] Dez Nado expresses he’s thoughts on all the victims that have been happening due to police brutality. Unnecessary roughness that ended the lives of these innocent unarmed victims. All Dez Nado is asking for is peace and equality. The track also features Jermeka Monae with the vocals and Tyler Norris with the poetic speech at the end of the track.

[06. DUELE] How couldn’t post this track? Showing love for the Boriqua’s Dez Nado show’s his skills in rapping in Spanish and English. Love the production of this track! The song makes us visuals Dez Nado in Puerto Rico meeting a beautiful Puerto-Rican and she gives him a tour of the city. A mix of salsa, hip-hop, and R&B makes you want to dance to the beat. DUELE features Jermeka Monae, Gabriele and Twenty8.

dez nado[11. FED UP] It starts with a reality check, listen to what the voice has to say. The track really provides with the production a hard hitting bass with Royal Francis providing bars for the first verse. On the hook and second verse we got Dez Nado. He’s giving a word of an advice to not pay attention to the ones who don’t believe in you and you’re able to do what your heart wants.

[14. MORE 2 LIFE] Dez Nado gets mean on this one, how can you not! Getting frustrated with the system, and working hard and not getting the joys of life. The track features Meanz of Operation, I find their collaboration to be pretty dope. A lot of energy and emotion on this track.

[17. IMMIGRANT STORY] Dez Nado takes us on a journey like no other. An immigrant’s point of view of living in circumstances that are life threatening and what can happen to Syrian’s that are struggling to survive. It’s an amazing tale, so descriptive and Dez Nado is very passionate with this story. If you close your eyes you can watch the movie play. Take a listen you won’t regret it.

This concludes my album review of Dez Nado’s LADOLCEVITA. Conscious rapper from Jacksonville, Florida making a choice to talk about what’s really important over great production. Be on the look out for more content from Dez Nado coming soon.

[Super Girl Spotlight] Ailawishes

supergirlposter-640x350I 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:

Untitled“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
