Nikko Lafre ft. Taylor J - Life I Chose

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
K. Beatz
Album:

Like every rapper on the come-up, Minneapolis newcomer Nikko Lafre faces a long, hard road to the top with no guarantee of safe arrival at this destination. But through bad times as well as good, he stays faithful to his hustle. After all, as he spits on this freshly-minted mixtape single, “This The Life I Chose.” K. Beatz‘s atmospheric production, driven by syncopated drum patterns and simmering synths, backs the unsigned buzzmaker as he touts his dedication to the grind in speedy, self-assured verses. St. Paul neighbor Taylor J. delivers an equally tenacious guest 16. The record concludes with some wise words from the late Pimp C: “We just stay true to it even when you know, everybody else was doing some different things. That’s all, just stay true to what you do.” Like what you’re hearing? More bangers await on Nikko’s Survival: Face the World LP, scheduled for free digital release on the 15th.
