With a host of labels and industry figures knocking at his door, NYKOBANDZ–a walking movement who is leading the new age of NOLA hip-hop–never intends to forget where he came from. “I want to be successful,” he says, “and I want to be able to get back to New Orleans and sign the talent here to [my own] label.”
After a string of buzz-worthy singles and a super dope EP called For The Youth, he recently collaborated with video director RON¢EE for his much anticipated visual for “Big Bool.” Having racked up over 5000 spins in less than a week, the video’s simple concept is brought to life with very fitting cinematography that gives it a polished look.
NYKOBANDZ has developed a distinctive brand and sound that is making him one of the most exciting and versatile young artists to come from the ‘NOLA’ is some time. The ‘Sauce’ of New Orleans is a term we’ve seen circulating. Definitely an artist to keep on your watch list–catch him at SXSW!
