There is a budding new rapper on the rise coming out of the often overlooked Midwest hip-hop hub that is Cleveland. Going by the name NicX (pronounced Nicks), the young rapper has been steadily making waves in his hometown of Cleveland with his killer delivery and ability to craft memorable hooks. The Cleveland-based rapper made his first big splash five months ago with the raw banger "Merk," which sonically is comparative to A$AP Ferg's hit "Work".
