It's not everyday you come across raw talent, but here is an artist that really does have that original unique vibe that all of our favourite Hip-Hop stars have become famous for. Nick Javas is that man, he is that artist, that man who can put Hip-Hop back in check. In an era of blinged-out diluted gangsta rap, Nick Javas really is a breath of fresh air. Something authentic but not dated, something exciting but not dictated by swagger, this is real music with substance and integrity.
Nick Javas came to the attention of DJ Premier a couple of year's back who immediately signed him to his label before taking Nick Javas on his European tour. Nick Javas shared the stage with Premo & Royce da 5'9 at Fabric in London as well as featuring on BBC Radio with TimWestwood and featuring on Kiss FM DJ Shortee Blitz's mixtape "The Standard: Volume 2", as well as rocking a capacity crowd in Paris alongside Premo, Just Blaze & Alchemist. As well as being a great songwriter and recording artist, Nick Javas is also an exceptionally great performer. This really is raw talent in every shape and form!
You maybe remember the superb 'Material Girls' music video that was unleashed a couple of weeks back, well here is the full length debut mixtape. Featuring some brilliant production from the likes of 5th Seal, Versatile, J. Brown, M-Phazes and Josh Gotoy, this mixtape also includes some great freestyles. This official mixtape is something to keep us going until the album 'Destination Unknown' drops and what a treat it is too with guest features by Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg and the legendary DJ Premier, as well as Gist the Essence, Tony Brocc, Nicci Silva and Nikki Graffiti. This is a mixtape you need to download right now!!!
