About Nizzy Contact

PHILADELPHIA, PA

Boss Status Labels own Nizzy Contact and cousin Flame The Boss are co founders of Boss Status Label, candidly introduce themselves to the world of hip hop by sharing the need to create and successfully define their recording Label amongst those in the industry to date. They discuss the urgency and the necessity for a reformation of the current state of hip-hop; its artists and most diffidently its lyrical content. These two aspiring moguls believe the industry and its artists needs to learn from the early rap and hip-hop ecstatic and its true pioneers. To revert back to the basics of rap and hip-hop, to its place of origin when the lyrical content was raw and explicit yet at the same time it depicted honesty, creativity and more importantly the harsh realities of its avid audience. Both Nizzy and Flame envision the potential in their label as reinstating the message and storytelling back into hip-hop by promoting and producing Raw Rap. When asked what was your motivation or influence to become a rapper(contact) he nonchalantly stated,there were no influences the game needs me There are a lot of lack luster performances by other artists and Im the real deal. Nizzy audaciously and confidently give emphasis on the fact that he is widely known, respected and referred to within the hood as AKA Nizzy Contact the explanation servers as a compliment to the fact that he is so well known and resourceful. He says the assumed name stands for the fact that I am the contact to the Yellow Brick Road which means contact to the city I can show you any were to go in the city. However if he had to give reference to an influence it would be that of Bottom Side Sommerville Underground artists. Nizzy refers to these artists as Local Hood celebrities. He say that what makes his label different is that it houses and produces Raw Hip-hop raw in the sense of its truest elements, and has coined the term ;Straight to the Oils raw as oil the analogy suggests the desired talent their label seeks to represent. Nizzy got his start in the game when he resided in South Carolina.The Come Up Team comprised of 11 members, was a group that Nizzy describes as All members were from different parts of the U.S trying to build an unstoppable force in hip-hop from up north to down south. Music is what separated us and it was music that merged the group. The members lived in various towns in South Carolina and as a result of our hustle to build capital and make music we all found each other repeatedly. Nizzy feels Hip-hop is currently in the worst state it has ever been. By means of Lyrical content way off! It is extremely under rated. When asked whos to blame, Nizzy unequivocally blames hip-hops audiences. He believes that the recording companies share the burden of fault as well for portraying cliche©s that the industry has become synonymous for such as the money, the extravagant proposed life style and the luxuries accumulated by quick wealth. People today prefer and have become accustomed to buy into such propaganda. Recording labels today rely in the artist name to sell it self Commercialized rap has become so integrated into hip-hop current culture that people dont want True hip-hop, they are so concerned with how rappers are saying what they are saying rather then what they are saying. Hip-hop is not as strong as it was in the 80s, when music was subliminal, where the listeners heard stories and were able to learn something through the music. The 80s and the 90s, although the lyrical content was extremely profane and explicit, it was the truth, it was real, it was the language of the hood of those who were able to relate to the streets. Now a days people idealize these rappers who portray false images just so their records can sell. With all do respect though, I do understand why they do to sell records if youre a broke rapper. I respect anyone hustle, not knocking someone drive. They do what works. To me hip-hop at its best and truest form was back then when you had Public Enemy, LL Cool Jay, KRS One, Tupac, Wu Tang Clang, and Biggie. All brought originality and different approaches to the game. Wu Tang Clang collectively sold over 10 million copies, there are no groups today of that fortitude or have surpassed their success. Chuck D was like a preacher, KRS One the teacher, LL greatest battles, plus to mention the DJs and the Mcs that is hip-hop in the purest. When you listened to hip-hop back then, you were guaranteed to get a message, you felt good, as though you were watching a movie. I like to compare hip-hop back then to watching Scare Face, then to hip-hop today, which is more like watching a sitcom such as Seinfeld. Rappers now days are actors. However in spite of the direction I see hip-hop going in, I wouldntchange hip-hop, hip-hop needs to change its self. I would rather get in and develop what I feel is true hip-hop. I feel that no one is boldly making moves no one is singling themselves out, they are too scared to take chances. But Im not, which is why we felt the need to create this label to make unprecedented moves so that people can begin to be exposed to raw and underground talent, make acquire a love for true hip-hop all over again, supporting talents from their own respected communities. The difference though with Boss Status is that we are looking not only to bring hip-hop back to its roots but to represent all genres of music while at the same time giving back to the community
