Meet Young Nicky

Today we’d like to introduce you to Young Nicky.

Hi Young, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I was born & raised in Seattle, Washington but my family is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I always had an interest in music as a kid & wanted to make music when I hear 2pac’s, I get around plus my uncle makes music and I used to watch him play the piano at my grandmother’s house. I carried that with me as I got older then one day I got an opportunity to get in the studio & that’s how my song makes it last forever came about! I picked this song to remix because it’s a song that all generations can love and appreciate it!

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I had my ups and downs while doing music too everything ain’t so peachy! I remember I was getting ready to drop my song make it last forever on all platforms in 2019 and I ended up in jail. When that happened, I thought everything I was doing was going to fail so my mom bailed me out of jail that weekend for a false charge! I get out and released the song like nothing happen!

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’m trying to change the structure of today’s hip hop meaning I think this generation needs someone who can relate to them and grasp a hold of them and take them in a different direction. I knew I was different from peers and other artists when my nieces & lol cousins loved my music and have the same dreams. The little things in life put everything in a better perspective for me! I’m currently have been nominated for two awards at the indie artist awards! Coming a long way foreal!

What do you like and dislike about Seattle?
I love Seattle because this a big music City & opportunities are everywhere is just about your state of mind! Seattle is small everybody knows everybody, lol.
