You know you’re doing something right when little babies are getting down to your music :-)
“But y’all love to brag about the riches y’all get/ You would never do some of the things I did for a flip/ Like getting rental cars & taking a little trip, to crawling under house with the spiders, getting bit/ To hittin’ big broad cause she’ help us with our rent…” -Nick

Yesterday 04.16.2009 was the second anniversary of the Virginia Tech shooting tragedy and we would like to spread this around again in remembrance of the students who were lost on 04.16.2007.
We send our condolence to your family and friends and we will all miss you.
Excerpt from the 2007 press release for Nickelus F – Not Like This
“Since the VA Tech tragedy people from all over were hitting me up to do a tribute, but I was reluctant to do it, even though it hit so close to home … When I actually got to thinking about it and heard what other rappers had to say about the situation I decided to look at it from my own angle,” says Nickelus F.
The song uses Raekwon’s classic beat for the song “Heaven Or Hell” as a back drop and takes the listener through a whirlwind ride of a student who is contemplating his life as the gunfire rings out around him. The hook is a glaring cry of “NOT LIKE THIS! NOT LIKE THIS! I always wanted to be remembered, but not like this. I wanted to go down in history, but not like this…”
The picture he paints is a vivid, at times graphic and heart wrenching… His lyrics pull the listener into the world he’s envisioning, as he describes lives being lost around him and flashes back on to things he wished he had done before his inevitable death by the hands of the shooter.
“I made the song as an artistic interpretation of what I read in the papers and saw on TV. I’ve experienced loss in my life and always have felt that making music was the best way to help me grieve,” says Nickelus F.
It’s a well known fact that art has always been a key element in how we channel emotion and “Not Like This” is just one of songs that will hopefully entertain, spark emotion and most of all teach us, so that history will not repeat itself…”
