“Do you fools listen to music or do you just skim through it?” Those are lyrics that most hip hop heads probably know well. Jay-Z birthed them in “Renegade” from his album The Blueprint. This is also the introductory line for the song “Not At All” by four young men named: The Niceguys.
The Niceguys consist of an MC, DJ and producers. Yves (MC), Candlestick (DJ), Free and Chrisolph (producers) all met while attending the University of Houston. While Yves is from Queens, New York, the other members are all from different parts of Texas. The group is a definite change from the norm of what one may call the southern hip hop sound. I myself being from southwestern Louisiana and growing up hearing Houston artist, notice that their sound is definitely different. And quite frankly, that’s not a bad thing. The group hopes to continue to keep hip hop buzzing with their progressive and original ideas. Check the crews first video for “Not At All” off their EP The Green Room below.
