NicX (real name: Byron Nichols Jr.) is an emerging rapper caught between many worlds, trying to find a world to call his own. The wandering began at an early age for the Cleveland-born NicX, with a move to Atlanta in his adolescence to escape the influence of his older brother and to be with his father. Atlanta is where he found his gift for lyrical dexterity, but it's also where he found hardships and turmoil at levels unimaginable. While influenced by rappers such as J. Cole, Drake, and Cleveland's own Kid Cudi, NicX was also influenced by real world turbulence, with his father getting the two evicted every three months due to lack of funds.
The homelessness inspired extreme resourcefulness and resilience, as demonstrated by the release of his first three projects. His debut mixtape, NicXnation, was a showcase of his rapid-fire delivery and wordplay. His second project, the "Don't Go Computer On Me" (EP), was a showcase of his knack of surrounding himself with the brightest artists in the game, such as 6LACK and Jazz Cartier . His most recent effort, last year's "Tryna Get Home"(EP) , was his most mature effort to-date, with the 22-year old displaying a knack for self-reflection.
