[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:
[SEATTLE, WA] Making his return on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artist 40Groove who’s bringing us his latest single YOUR SPOT.

[BALTIMORE-BORN, COLLEGE PARK-raised] Making his return to NikkiSiixx.com, We have Rapper, Engineer, Writer Speed on the Beat with his latest single THE REVOLUTION’S COMING. Speed on the Beat’s flow is definitely different, from other artists I’ve heard recently. Speed decides to talk about what really matters and that’s the discrimination this nation does for people who are different in color.
Now in his late twenties, Speed is both willing to retire from music at any moment and able to go into any project with no regrets on how he’s done…but not before he shows why he’s The Sorest Loser. His writing can be found sites such as Boi-1da.com, EyesontheRing.com, a wrestling-centric site, DefineARevolution.com, the homepage for the Team DAR movement he represents, and his own site, SpeedontheBeat.com. I seriously don’t know how he finds the time to contribute to all of these outlets but I’m glad he does. Besides being a lyricist he knows how to portray he’s words in any format. Weither it’s from his lyrics, to the beat production, and by writing out the story for you to see visually. Make sure you follow the talented Speed on the beat!
My personal thoughts: We must all understand we’re not apart different races (Black, White, Hispanic, and Native American) but as one race and that is the human race! We must treat everyone as our equal and generate as much positive energy so the world can finally find peace.

In these days where we feel the need to share our lives online it feels to hear it be addressed in a song. Lucille gives us this soulful single that speaks of what really goes on in the world over this Pure Quality Jay track. I felt like she was singing directly to me seeing how my last relationship ended because of drama brought on by social media. I guarantee you many ladies will find this song relatable from the point of view that Lucille is singing and many of the guys will feel as I did. Many of people put up a social media façade nowadays to cover up what is really going on and to hide their feelings. The lyrics of this song paint such a vivid picture of just that. She even went into detail of what she was writing on each social networking and the types of photos she posted. I honestly think this song deserves a great deal of attention and promotion because it’s something that everyone can relate to. I definitely will be checking out her EP “Birthday” based on this song. Check it out below.
[ATLANTA, GEORGIA] Da Rookiez are at it with their latest single titled LMAO. Have you ever laughed out loud and couldn’t contain yourself? Especially when its over peoples dumb shit. Da Rookiez consists of two brothers (Grant and Keon) who are originally from Portsmouth, Va. Both dealing with dramatic passes with traveling from home-to-home, witnessing drug and domestic abuse, losing their closest friends to gun violence, and even their cousin who was apart of Da Rookiez Tavarius Hall. The funky beat was produced by Trey Pound. LMAO is filled with lyrical and tricky play on words.

Lately, he’s been getting nothing but love on his recent releases. In this track, we find out that in fourth grade Case’s favorite rapper was Eminem. THE NICEST leaves us wanting more.

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.
It’s good to see the Baltimore kid eMeX come back strong with another visual offering after a brief hiatus. He picked up where he left off with strong lyrical content and polished flow. “Eyes Low” is more than the weed head track the title would imply; this one is a mission statement meant to affirm his intentions and work ethic.
With “Eyes Low” the Howard University student shows that he hasn’t lost the juice that made his music so captivating in the first place. eMeX uses his education and intelligence to speak well on his ambitions and motives, dreams and considerations. With lines like “only thing I’m afraid of is not getting it by any means/dying at the hands of my enemies/beware of fifty-fifty tendencies” it’s clear that his auditory aspirations have not faded and his quest for legitimacy is only deepening. Be on the lookout for a so-far untitled full length project set to release this summer from eMeX.
