Our latest edition of On The Come Up features Nikko Lafre, one of Minneapolis, Minnesota's most promising young voices.
HotNewHipHop'sÂ On The Come Up profiles emerging rappers and producers that show strong promise but haven't necessarily seen the shine they deserve, from those deep underground to artists on the cusp of the mainstream that you may have missed. You'll find analyses of their defining characteristics, examples of their best work and plenty of opportunities to dig deeper via hyperlinks. If there's a particular artist you'd like to see covered here in the future, feel free toÂ let us know in the comment section below.Â
Our regular readers should be familiar withÂ Nikko LafreÂ at this point. Since making his debut on the siteÂ back in April 2013, the Minneapolis, Minnesota representative has been releasing quality music consistently. Though only 19 years of age, his chances in the game are already looking quite good, his approach marked by a shrewd business sense, exhaustive perfectionism and unrelenting ambition (not to mention hisÂ support system, which includes producer Lee On The Beats, aÂ We The Best signee responsible forÂ DJ Khaled'sÂ "Hold You Down,"Â French Montana'sÂ "Pop That" and several other hits).Â
Read on for a breakdown of Nikko's career path thus far, much of it from the man himself.Â
