After dropping the the single “Ballin” last month -- which, by the way, is absolute flames-- Atlanta based rapper and producer Niko Blue is back again with the motivational single titled “Backyard”.
If you have been following NIko, you’ll soon see that this is an artist with range. Unlike “Ballin”, which gives straight bars over hard knocking subs and “Fallin’” which give you a taste of house music, “Backyard” shows how he can also flex his vocals.
Peep the dope ass hook:
Said all my niggas chillin' in the backyard
Aiming for the stars
And for the drama you can keep it where you are
You ain't up to par
Niko has definitely been on his grind. After generating quite a buzz back in 2015 with his ear-catchy single “Dirty Dan” featuring LightSkinMac11 he has been developing a catalog that has been worth the listen.
The go-get-it nature of Backyard for sure has us interested to see what else he has coming. In the meanwhile check out his latest five song EP When It All Comes Crashing Down:
