Nico The Beast

Ain't Nothing New

When it comes to Philly, the music scene is built on a number of things: soul, honesty and raw talent. You could say that these three things are encompassed in one man, South Philly's own Nico The Beast. Starting out in 1999, he honed his lyrical prowess on the battle scene, decimating any competition that came in his path with witty wordplay and back-breaking punchlines. In a world where posturing and perpetrating can get you everywhere, it makes sense that a born and bred South Philly Beast represents the essence of Hip-Hop.
