New Solo Album/Autobio Coming Soon

For the past decade Mic Nickels has focused most of his creative energy on writing with Nickel and Dime Ops, recording three albums with the band during this time. His latest release, Bars for Days, which bares the same title as his upcoming autobiography, is a return to the rapper’s roots in traditional beats and rhymes style hip hop. Mostly boom bap in nature, the album also dabbles in contemporary sound. Nickels’ goal being to exemplify lyrical prowess over both styles of production to prove a point, that hip hop music with substance is possible on all sides of the genre’s spectrum.To achieve his vision Nickels brought in engineering legend Al Machera to oversee the project, which was recorded and mixed at the world famous Westlake Studio in Los Angeles. Contributions were made by beat makers from around the U.S. and Europe, including Grammy award winning Brandon “Bizzy” Hollemon, and boom bap luminaries such as Colombeyond, Mr. Cord, and Kiza. Blazing collaborations with Method Man, Timbo King, and others help solidify the notion that Mic Nickels indeed deserves to be considered amongst the lyrically elite.
