Nico Ghost is coming for his souls…and he will collect.
A new force in what has been dubbed the ‘new wave’ of Australian hip hop, this Melbourne MC is leading the charge with the likes of Allday and Ivan Ooze, taking the genre forward in new and creative ways and expanding hip hop audiences across the country. Out of the dark depths of the Melbourne scene, Nico Ghost emerged in July of 2015 to stake his claim with his debut EP offering ’Kaishi’. Making a serious impact, the record resulted in a slot at the coveted Beyond the Valley Festival and culminated in an invitation to support US legends Wu-Tang Clan in an epic tour which wound up last week.
Without missing a beat, his new single ‘Night Terrors’ has dropped just in time for listeners to get acquainted with his unique sound ahead of his national support of G-Eazy this week around the country. ‘Night Terrors’ is a journey into Nico’s mind, and how he deals with the dark obstacles it so often faces. A sense of catharisis is released across this dark and brooding piece whilst till offering a warmth through his tonality and flow.
We are sure you will be listening to Night Terrors time and time again but keep your ears close to the ground because Nico Ghost is coming… ready or not.
Channelling his time with the legendary Wu-Tang Clan, Nico Ghost has been hard at work cultivating his sound. Inspired by the US, the South African born rapper has taken the dark and gloomy trap sound we know from the south and flipped it, with a unique twist.Inspired by the likes of Nelly and Kanye West, Nico reflects this wholly in his work. With an emphasis on strong, unique production, alongside snappy, hard hitting lyricism, there is no doubting Nico’s potential in the scene, and we can’t wait to see what he’s got up his sleeves next!
