Raised in The Bronx, New York, Hip-Hop artist, Nikko Merc has been putting in the work required to elevate his craft and grow as an artist for over 15 years.

Inspired by groundbreaking artists such as, Lecrae , 6lack, KB, and J. Cole, Nikko Merc has released three projects from three different places in life, and has gained some insightful mentorship’s and connections that have helped him to shape his sound, while gaining confidence in the direction he is headed. Expect to hear more greatness from this up-and-coming creative, in the next year. With Bodega Tapes Vol.1 being the staple of what to expect for future collaborations and features on upcoming projects . Nikko will continue to prove his gift has a bigger purpose as elevation season draws in.
