Let’s take it back for a minute. In 2011 Nikki generated a huge buzz with the release of No Beat Iz Safe mixtape and because this femcee was so focused on the grind, 2012 became an even bigger year for her. She headlined her first performance at the SCMC Maybach Music Seminar in March of that year. The following month, Nikki took another huge step towards greatness when she opened up for Da Baddest B*tch, Trina in Columbus, Georgia. The good news didn’t stop there, her hit single “Motivation” was dubbed Top 10 on the UK Internet charts and the track was featured on Spotify as the top tweeted songs of the month.
Continuing to show up and show out for Georgia and the south; Nikki then dropped her mixtape The McKnight Files in 2013. The project boasted the singles “Sky’s The Limit” and “Motivation,” which were in heavy rotation on 98.3FM The Beat & FOXIE 104.9FM in Columbus. Nikki is closer to her mission to be ranked amongst liek likes of Eve, Trina, Nicki Minaj and Rhapsody. In 2014, she opened for Trick Daddy, and again for Trina in 2015. She was also nominated for a GA Music Award for Best Female Hip Hop Artist of 2015.
Nikki’s music is creative, honest, and always from the heart. She doesn’t fear rhyming about controversial topics such as gun violence, her love life and various other situations that most people wouldn’t dare talk about. Nikki is clearly a beast when she hits that booth. She pours it all out on the track providing relatable content for the masses.
