Since the beginning of hip-hop, Queens has been a factory for producing quality DJs and MCs. But not all of them are Nyce. Hailing from South Side, Jamaica, Queens, Nyce has been in an MC in the hip-hop game for over 5 years. He started rhyming by listening to a lot of the classic albums from some of hip-hop’s favorite artists: Mobb Deep, Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, Biggie and 2Pac. These artists inspired Nyce to start freestyling into a hand-held tape recorder. From cassettes to park battles to shows, Nyce wound up in the hands of one of his all-time favorites: rapper/producer Havoc from Mobb Deep.
