R.A.R.E. (Reliving A Real Experience) is the latest and most introspective project from Richmond, VA artist Nickelus F. It’s a passion project that delves into Nick’s thoughts about his career, life & music.
Nickelus F gives new life to Portisheads classic material on this project without taking away from the original mean and sound of Portishead’s production and lyrics.
R.A.R.E. (Reliving A Real Experience) is also a lead into more original work with Portishead that will surface in Fall/Winter 2009. Nickelus F & his band Silverust are working on music with Portishead front man Geoff Borrow that will be released in the UK and of course can be found online.
Look out for that and more from Nickelus F.

D/L: ===> Nickelus F & Portishead – Mean It
Stopped by iPower92.1 FM in Richmond, VA to talk about:
- My history coming up as an artist & my out look & mentality for 2009
- How I linked up & started working with Drake
- How I became inspired to do the R.A.R.E. album with Portishead & future work with the group
- The power of the internet for musicians
A-Plus also got me to spit some very dope bars over Drake’s November 18th beat…

R.A.R.E. (Reliving A Real Experience) is the latest and most introspective
project from Richmond, VA artist Nickelus F. It’s a passion project that
delves into Nick’s thoughts about his career, life & music.
The inspiration for R.A.R.E. came from his discovery of Portishead’s music
from producer Ivory Snow, who sampled a Portishead song for a track off of
Nickelus F’s Heathen album called “Somebody’s Watching Me.” After hearing
that sample Nick purchased Portishead’s whole catalogue of music and started
to bubble with ideas for songs that have lead up to the creation of
This album is not a mash up or simple Hip Hop songs sampling Portishead
records… It’s exactly what the title states it is “Reliving A Real
Experience.” Nick takes the original music and relives the experience of the
musical ride Portishead has already put the listener through, while adding
his own personal touch to each track.
This will surely please any Portishead enthusiast and open up the minds of
Hip Hop heads to a new genre of music that hasn’t been named or defined yet,
but that’s what artists like Nickelus F do… They redefine music…
