NIKO IS - Ballon d’Or

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Thanks Joey
Album:

If you aren’t a soccer fan, then the title of NIKO IS‘s latest feature might have gone over your head like a goal kick. The Ballon d’Or is a FIFA award given to the most outstanding footballer (soccer player) of that year. The title is fitting because, on the mic, NIKO displays Christiano-like skill. On his pitch, a lavish, boom bap-inspired beat by Thanks Joey, Niko delivers tongue-twisting bars in a confident flow that evokes the image of Messi weaving past the defense. Like Messi, Niko finishes strong. As the beat builds the track transforms into a more assertive groove, as Niko kicks it up a notch and whips out a more authoritative flow to end the record with a bang. This football-themed cut can be found on NIKO’s forthcoming, Booth-hosted project, GoodBlood due out next week.
