One to always be on top of her game when it comes to spittin over another rappers beat, Nikki McKnight takes it to the woods and a delivers some menacing bars over the classic Freeway, "What We Do" instrumental.

“McKnight’s laid-back voice captivates on singles like “Road Trippin” and “Motivation,” paving the way for her EPisodes EP to drop in July. On stage she pauses between songs to let the audience know she loves every single one of them. But when the beat drops, she’ll run ’em down if they dare stand in her path on the way to the top.”

Step into a few crucial moments in Nix's life as she expresses the pain and adversity of dealing with family issues, and the car accident that she was in as well as a few other things.

“Nix has a skill for putting together great songs such as “Motivation” and “Special”, and this song is no exception she knows how to structure this song and tell a story from how she put together the video filled with memories of her grind and music career through photos and video, but with out without the video you can paint that picture. Nix is able to switch up the flow, and she delivers her lyrics with true emotion.”
