Budding Nigerian Star, St. Paul, MN Based Artist, Nsikak, Releases First New Record of 2015

St. Paul, MN – United States based Budding Nigerian music star and Minnesota’s own Nsikak (Pronounced En-see-kah) releases a new record called May Weather, just in time for the fight of the century!

• Nsikak

The album, May Weather, is titled as a double entendre that represents the summertime sound of the record and arguably one of the greatest boxers of all time. And just like Floyd, Nsikak delivers punchline after punchline right out of the gate over his own production that samples Minnesota’s own, Morris Day and The Time’s 'Get It Up.'

 

Blending his lyrical confidence with comedic puns, Nsikak manages to call himself ‘Saint Paul’s Saint Nicholas’ and predict the future all in one stream of consciousness as he hints, “…might drop this when Mayweather drops Pacquiao!” Who do you have as your champion? Either way Nsikak wins with this one.

Recent Press

On March 5, 2015, Erik Thompson of City Pages featured Nsikak’s music video, History on his Top Ten Must See Minnesota Music Videos. He describes it as a “menacing visual” that “compliments Nsikak’s highly-charged flow”, credit to Brian Few Jr. for the directing and editing as well. This video leaves you at the edge of your seats asking, “what really would happen if we all lost the internet today?”

Upcoming Show & Summer Anticipation

On Saturday July 11th, Nsikak will be performing at a St. Paul, MN Hip Hop festival showcase called “For the Love”. He is also currently working on his second album due to release later this summer. Stay tuned for more from him.

 

Who is Nsikak

Born in Minneapolis and raised in St. Paul, NSIKAK (Pronounced En-see-kah) focuses on bringing a genuine message to the forefront of music. At the age of 24 he has released his first official project, ‘These Moments’ as a free album.

 

Working exclusively with his home grown team, 3ME (3rdworld Music Entertainment), he has put together multiple projects, including Minnesota Summertime, a collaboration project featuring local artist Windu (Jake Windu), that have all featured in-house writing, editing, production and mixing.

 

Nsikak by definition means anything is possible with God; if it is any indication, the sky is truly the limit for his vision as he remains focused on putting out music that motivates the masses and moves culture forward.
