Name: Nyzzy Nyce

Age: 26

Hometown: Fort Wayne, IN

I grew up listening to: 2Pac, Master P, and Diplomats.

Most people don't know I: Was the No. 1 ranked BMX rider in the nation at the age of 13.

My style's been compared to: Wiz Khalifa and Kid Cudi, which I respect both of those guys music, but I find a way to differentiate myself because I pull my music from my experiences and create new ways to motivate the youth.

My standout records and/or moments to date have been: "I Just Rather," "Nights Like This," "Live It Up," "Right Now," and also a hometown hip-hop record titled 'My City."

My goal in Hip-Hop is: To create the greatest material and motivate my fans to go after their dreams. Also bring a new feel of music from the Midwest to rattle the trunks.

I'm gonna be the next: Artist to create a fully operating record label in my hometown of Fort Wayne to give other acts an opportunity to create music on a professional scale...HMG
