NIKO IS - 35,000 Feet

  • Artist: NIKO IS
  • Track: 35,000 Feet
  • Producer: Chaz Van Queen
  • Album: DJBooth Freestyle Series (#43)

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries were the work of a veritable who's-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars like Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller. Now, it's back for a second round.

The 43nd entry in the relaunched series comes courtesy of NIKO IS, the Brazilian-American emcee who recently earned reader acclaim for Floss (Remix). On 35,000 Feet, the Javotti Media signee flexes his lyrical muscles over an original beat by Chaz Van Queen. Fred Lozano provides original artwork to accompany the freestyle.
