The NIGHT PHOENIX EP IS HERE! Tales of heartbreak, betrayal and revenge highlight her hard hitting second EP.
Nilla is in top form as she smoothly spits fire over the cool breaks and beats of Anonymous D, DJ Rumage, and UNstrumentalz.
NiLLa combines conscious lyrics with catchy hooks effortlessly. Smoothly rapping and singing her way over synapse snapping beats NiLLa sounds like a polished vet, although she is a relative newcomer to the scene. Consistently striving to provide a positive message to the masses, NiLLa presents herself as a fresh influence in a hip hop genre polluted with bling, misogyny, and superficiality. She is a voice for the underdog, who will never be satisfied with the status quo.
“Music is my social commentary on the world from where I stand. I believe in truth, in honesty and in writing about what I know, what I see. My truth is kids on the streets without hope. What I know is inequality between races and genders; what I see is my opportunity to speak out. This is why I create fundraising events like ‘CACHA Vibe’ (Canada-Africa Community Health Alliance), perform at benefits for Save The Children, Doctor’s Without Borders, and write songs like “I Want”. I hope my music will inspire positive change. I truly love what I do, and anticipate my growth as an emerging female artist in Canada and the world as a whole. Music saved my life, and that’s the truth that I’m blessed with. ”
NiLLa’s debut album “From the Ground up” is available here.
