Nikki Jean: Beautiful Prison (Stream)

Happy to see the arrival of Nikki Jean’s debut release on Rhymesayers. Having first come to my attention as the lead singer of Nouveau Riche, alongside The Roots affiliate, Dice Raw, Nikki’s voice was always especially captivating. Having teased us with a couple of singles over the last year or so, including the atmospheric, People & Planes, the Philadelphia-based vocalist proves her worth with this seven track, hip hop infused EP. There is a lone feature from regular collaborator, Lupe Fiasco, who drops in on the previously released single, Mr Clean, with the rest of the project allowing Nikki’s lyricism to simply shine through. Downloads of Beautiful Prison are available over on Bandcamp and the full EP can be heard below.
