Representing Brooklyn, by way of Paterson NJ, the former basketball star discovered his love for Hip Hop after getting his hands on an Onyx and The Fugees tape. It didn’t take long for Nice to discover other artists such as Jay Z, Cam’ron, Fabolous, and Stack Bundles – all of whom he drew inspiration from when he eventually decided to record his own raps.
It’s to no surprise that when you press “play” on his latest album, “Culinary Thoughts,” the influence of the Golden Era’s grit and grime is undeniable. And when intertwined with Hip Hop’s modern elements, RichNice delivers an overall, thorough project. Fusing hard-hitting bars with auto-tuned melodies, Nice’s versatility is refreshing while his storytelling is relatable.
