DJBooth is proud to announce that the
will be rocking on
for this year's
in Atlanta. J. NiCS (Born Justin Nicholas) was born in the heart of Miami at North Shore Hospital. As a youth bouncing around through different neighborhoods, NiCS himself learning from the older individuals in the hood. Even though society would never call these individuals “Role Models”, they were all his teachers in life. Pimps, hustlers, murderers and Thieves all treated him with love and respect, and all helped mold him into the person he is today.
Like most who are forced to grow up fast, NiCS started rebelling toward society, his family, and any other authority figure, which is what initially drew him to hip-hop. Despite easy access to drugs, alcohol and violence in the streets of Miami, hip-hop gave him a new place to concentrate all of his energy, and also a platform to share his life with others.
“All I offer to you is myself, my experiences, and my perspective on life.” – J. NiCS
