NICK BLACKOS-ENGAGING IN THE GRITTY.

by | Oct 2, 2016 | MUSIC | 0 comments


With his baritone delivery suggesting that things could get darker than they seem, Nick Blackos has been dropping a series of surreal videos accompanied by lyrics that could bring on a bout of serious self-harm.

Hailing from East London, the rapper and producer co-created the label ONV dedicated to stepping outside of the norm-releases from the label to get all queasy about include Flickadot co-produced with Loa.

New projects to look out for; an EP dropping in November and a project called MTG (Metal Theft Gang) with a probable release in winter.

Check out more of the Blackos experience on the ONV website.
