He gives props to his relationships with production people and artists that continues to keep him in the studio’s with the who’s who’s of the game. A tradition he plans on continuously working on while also filming the hit reality show.

“Pretty much just being around the New York scene with new school and old school hip hop and being around a lot of producers from Trackmasters to Timbaland just being in that mix as a writer and singer it all got me to work with these people.” Nikko explained. “It was a lot of different influences from and R and B and rap, so many influences New York was just a mecca of music I used to do a lot of open mics too. I have always just been it.”

Being a music head his entire life that is how he landed on the cast of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta in the first place. First and foremost he claims his experience doing music is almost more important than his noterity as reality show actor as the owner of his own label Unstoppable Records.
