NIKO IS ~ Vamoose

NIKO IS Vamoose Artwork!

Who is NIKO IS?  An up and coming hip hop artist from Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, who is already building  a reputation as a solid songwriter and a witty lyricist!

My first impression of “Vamoose” : A slick hip hop track with clever lyrics, killer production and just a touch of some breezy Rio flavor!

My take : When I talk about the future of hip hop with others, Brazilian emcee NIKO IS now enters the conversation.  Just by listening to his latest track “Vamoose”, it’s easy to understand why.  NIKO IS delivers rhymes with a deliberate and confident style that reaches out across demographic lines and pay grades.  Pulling in both long time enthusiasts and novice ears with an ease few modern-day rap artists can.  Growing and evolving from early releases like his debut mixtape “Chill Cosby” and later “Green Blood”, NIKO IS continues to add different layers and unique personas to an already distinctive identity.  The future is bright for the young talent and I have a feeling “Vamoose” has just taken him to the next level!

NIKO IS dropped his highly anticipated “Brutus” LP last month and is now on The People’s Champion Tour with the one and only TALIB KWELI.  Now how’s that for getting great exposure!

Pick up the “Brutus” LP here!

TMH RATING: 7.5/10 Very Good!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
