R.A.R.E. (Reliving A Real Experience) is the latest and most introspective project from Richmond, VA artist Nickelus F. It’s a passion project that delves into Nick’s thoughts about his career, life & music.

Nickelus F gives new life to Portisheads classic material on this project without taking away from the original mean and sound of Portishead’s production and lyrics.

R.A.R.E. (Reliving A Real Experience) is also a lead into more original work with Portishead that will surface in Fall/Winter 2009. Nickelus F & his band Silverust are working on music with Portishead front man Geoff Borrow that will be released in the UK and of course can be found online.

Look out for that and more from Nickelus F.

Nickelus F stopped by iPower92.1 FM in Richmond, VA to talk about:

– His history coming up as an artist & his out look & mentality for 2009

– How he linked up & started working with Drake

– He became inspired to do the R.A.R.E. album with Portishead & future work with the group

– The power of the internet for musicians

A-Plus also got Nick to spit some very dope bars over Drake’s November 18th beat…

Some of the internet heads are mad at the press release about R.A.R.E we sent out stating…

“This will surely please any Portishead enthusiast and open up the minds of Hip Hop heads to a new genre of music that hasn’t been named or defined yet, but that’s what artists like Nickelus F do… They redefine music…” -H Diddy Dollar

Well… Like it or not, it’s art and when existing art is taken and made into something new and arguably a little bit more entertaining and introspective, it’s considered “redefining” it. That’s what was meant by “Artists like Nickelus, redefine music.”

So enjoy the music and come up with your own judgment on it!  😉

TEAM F 2009!

PRESS RELEASE:

R.A.R.E. (Reliving A Real Experience) is the latest and most introspective
project from Richmond, VA artist Nickelus F. It’s a passion project that
delves into Nick’s thoughts about his career, life & music.

The inspiration for R.A.R.E. came from his discovery of Portishead’s music
from producer Ivory Snow, who sampled a Portishead song for a track off of
Nickelus F’s Heathen album called “Somebody’s Watching Me.” After hearing
that sample Nick purchased Portishead’s whole catalogue of music and started
to bubble with ideas for songs that have lead up to the creation of
R.A.R.E..

This album is not a mash up or simple Hip Hop songs sampling Portishead
records… It’s exactly what the title states it is “Reliving A Real
Experience
.” Nick takes the original music and relives the experience of the
musical ride Portishead has already put the listener through, while adding
his own personal touch to each track.

This will surely please any Portishead enthusiast and open up the minds of
Hip Hop heads to a new genre of music that hasn’t been named or defined yet,
but that’s what artists like Nickelus F do… They redefine music…

newinfinityI’ma keep this short…

I wrote about Chasing FOREVER awhile back in hopes of setting a platform for myself to do whatever it is I’m meant to do and to become closer to what I feel is the best thing that ever came into my life.

At the time I wrote that I was pretty much in a pissy mood, but thinking back now, it is all still what I want to do. I’m going after it all no matter what. It’s my calling.

And tomorrow and the coming days after are going to be instrumental in what I feel is the destiny I always talk about.

I used to sit and wait for things to happen… But now it’s more about getting things to happen Taking the steps to make it Forcing my hand to grab it before it’s out of reach Before I lose it.

I STILL WANT THIS SHIT FOREVER MAN…

-H Diddy Blogger… Out

“I feel like I wrote this song before, many times, but I feel like them songs ignored. So… Let me restate… My nigga each day that we wake it’s a BLESSING that we each take. And even though them days may be long and may be hard; it’s up to us say,”HIT ME AGAIN” and play the cards. NEVER FOLD… GIVING UP IS NOT AN OPTION… My only OPTION is GRINDIN’ to make somemore options. I’m all LOCKED IN… LOADED… FUELED UP… GOD in my HEART, but a steady finger on the Ruger. Maneuver through the manure… See I’m ready for that big body LEX with the license plates that say LUGER… STEP INTO THE FUTURE… “ – Nickelus F (“ROADS”)
