Corry Paris Stokes — better known as Nymrod — recently released his long-awaited album, “Educated Thug Music Vol. 1; The Year of The Narcissist.” The veteran rapper and songwriter shows off his musical form of vocal delivery that incorporates “rhyme, rhythmic speech and street vernacular in this 12-track album. Featuring musicians like Haddy Racks, Royal Flush and Manifest — just to name a few — it’s no surprise the album has so many long awaited hits.
Nymrod has made quite the name for himself over the years, after being released from prison where he meet and mentored under Max B. Shortly after his release Nymrod connected with Dipset members Jim Jones and Cam’ron where he would be featured in Jim Jones “Ballin” music video. During his career he has collaborated with Redman, The Weekend, Melo, The Heatmakerz, H.E.R., PMD of EPMD, Spliff Star, Junior Reid, Tyga and VADO. NYMROD has graced some of the countries biggest stages performing at the legendary NYC venue SOB’s countless times alongside Fred the Godson, Rah Digga, The Lox, Onyx and even headlined at 2018’s Hot 97’s Summer Jam, DJ Drewski’s Long Island Artist Showcase as well as Columbus Ohio’s The Rock Festival with iconic rock band Evanessence. A good portion of Nymrod’s fan base and supporters comes from his performances. Nymrod has performed at venues up and down the east coast, some of the west coast and has even toured in Tokyo. He takes pride in the ability to work a crowd and command the stage. When Nymrod is on stage you cannot help but to take notice. He decided to have his Album release party for “Educated Thug Music Vol. 1; The Year Of The Narcissist” in Miami, Florida during the “Drive Your Dreams Car show” with DJ Envy. This is probably what contributed to “Educated Thug Music Vol. 1; The year of the Narcissist” day one debut of over 45k streams, which for an underground independent artist is like going Gold.
Nymrod has since released several multiple chart-topping singles like “LIFESTYLES” “THE KING AND I” and “TIME,” — the latter featuring rappers Haddy Racks and Royal Flush. This album has promised not to let his haters down; he has given every one of them more and more reason to hate even harder.
Opening with the title track, “DON’T F*CK WITH ME” tells the story of how many rappers aren’t who their bars suggest them to be and unrequited feelings. There’s organized upbeat chaos to the song, matching the lyrical and visual context of the song. The track ends with a very strong message to all those that feel they can F*ck with him.
“KING AND I” breaks down the fake interactions Nymrod has experienced since his starting of his record label “Federal District Records” and his career blowing up. Whether fake friends, artist contracts he’s had to cancel, or cancelling women whom couldn’t comprehend they wouldn’t be more than a one night stand. He let’s every one know he doesn’t need them and not to push his buttons rapping, “Ni**as wanna talk sh*t, talk sh*t, till the eagle in they mouth, in they mouth / Then they wanna talk it, talk it and try to work it out / Don’t push my buttons.”
Featuring rappers and songwriters Haddy Racks and Royal Flush “TIME” has a catchy hook and all three artists go back to back with sick verses that make you nod your head from the beat drop. Nymrod knows his worth with this song as he raps, “ I’d advice yall to breath easy / Ni**as know Nym, I don’t breath easy / if there’s a problem young man step to the D and see me / What yall Ni**as thought I was born greasy, I’ll take your cash money dog and leave ya a**es weezy,” Did we mention the bar game in this album.
In the music video, Nymrod, Haddy Racks and Royal Flush take turns clearly letting the streets know they are not to be tested. Loyalty is more than a tattoo to some. You just have to find a team worthy of you putting it all on the line.
Nymrod shows off his lyrical ability and range in genre with “SEASONS” featuring Enjo, which sounds more Pop-Hip Hop compared to the other tracks on “Educated Thug Music Vol. 1.” It also shows off his range and ability, to please the ladies in his calmer verses. You can hear the emotion in his voice in this track when he raps, “ Could you tell me where we went wrong, it’s like I’m caught up in this love song / I can’t concentrate or breath with my heart gone, you was my female doctor Hawthorne, now I gotta stretch it out, Armstrong / I understand your pain, I understand your gripes, man F*uck that nigga just come spend the night.”
Sticking with the hip-hop genre “MR NOBODY” is a slow hip-hop ballad about being stuck in a place where Nymrod talks about the rumors he’s heard about himself throughout his career. He can’t understand how the people he fed could call him bro, lover and friend one minute but then squint their eyes, curse him and call him a nobody with the same mouth that once whispered I Love You’s. Grammy award winner, Newo The Kid, showcases these conflicting emotions with an intense production.
Closing out the album “THE EDUCATION,” a track consisting mainly of base guitars, heavy drums and some strings along with other complimenting sounds. Nymrod reflects on how his experiences in the music industry and life have shaped him — both positively and negatively. He opens the song, “It’s like duck, duck, goose, hut one, hut two, this ain’t romper room when I’m aiming at your roof, this is what God looks like when God looks right / I’m just giving you the future in hindsight….” He is giving a clear lesson and class is in session.
The tracks I’ve highlighted show off the range of the album, but you have to listen to the entire album. I did straight through, no skips. I am looking forward to Education Thug Music Vol. 2; The Education. Nymrod has a bright future ahead in his music career.

Having big dreams in a small town may be more ambitious than most, and Kodoku suffered consequences. He was an outcast during his high school years, but that only added fuel to the flame. When the time came to choose what to do after high school, Kodoku faced going to the military or college.

SyckCezzy teams up with FLM Label Mate Daniel Peter on Follow up single “Downfall”
Final Level Music Artists SyckCezzy and Daniel Peter are back with a new joint entitled “Downfall.” It’s a creative project that showcases Syckcezzy’s gritty poetic style and Daniel Peter’s silky vocals. The duo skillfully explains how a precipitous decline in status or wealth can happen when a hater speaks against you. The track was executively produced by two well-renowned veterans in the game-Ice-T and Hen Gee Garcia.
SyckCezzy was born in Missouri and raised in Richmond Virginia. Growing up on the southside of Richmond wasn’t the ultimate dream for the young Syck but it was an experience. SyckCezzy prides himself as a diverse artist that works with all genres of music. Ten years from now, Syck will focus on different phases and styles that the hip-hop genre has gone through over the last few decades. With a winning strategy in place, SyckCezzy plans to put his people in a position to win along with giving back to his people. His message to the youth is strong- “Please educate yourselves by paying attention, follow your dream, work hard, and don’t accept “NO” as an answer.” The rapper/entrepreneur has a new business venture and it is ‘Syck Wine’ to build generational wealth.
Daniel Peter isn’t new to the music scene. This young, driven American Pop artist was first discovered at the age of 13 when his music went viral. The Ames, Iowa native has been singing since the age of two and is a self-taught musician of four instruments.
Daniel has been passed the torch from his father, who played the guitar for the band “Willy and The Rockets” and was an active singer in their home church. As for his mother, she is the backbone of his support and his number 1 fan. Family values are very important; therefore Daniel devotes himself to staying connected to his hometown. As a young kid, who was repeatedly a victim of bullying, Daniel has vowed and dedicated his music as well as his entire brand to making his fans smile and encouraging living life optimistically. With influences such as Michael Jackson, Usher, Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, and Kehlani, Daniel Peter brings a touch of greatness to the realm of music. Through the intriguing blends of R & Bass, Pop, and Rhythmic fusion, this young phenomenon is the future sound of music.
As an artist who rides through tough times and comes out the other side a better man, Li’Kev has emerged as not only one of hip-hops most notable rising stars, but also a beacon of inspiration for others. Taken from his third studio album ‘BOLO’, ‘Word Around Town’ is a track packed with 808-heavy grooves and catchy lyricism that tells listeners the story of his fast-paced lifestyle.
Although the track was released independently as part of the ‘BOLO’ album in April 2021, Li’Kev now finds himself proudly signed to Outlet Entertainment. Produced by Elliot Dugas, the track was one of the standouts of the album and is part of a body of work that showcased the sheer diversity of his talents.
Since the release, Li’Kev has gone on to release his fourth album, ‘Crossroads’ in June, with his impressive mix of hip hop-infused melody and aggression reaching over 100,000 streams on Spotify after its first week of release.
From a form of therapy that he’s used to get himself through tough times, to a beacon of opportunity that now offers the possibility to create change, the music of Louisiana-based hip-hop specialist Li’Kev has a fair few stories to tell. Now proudly signed to Outlet Entertainment, he’s intent on forging a career at the top of the rap game.
Simply attempting to define the eclectic style of Li’Kev in a matter of sentences would be an injustice to the diversity that his talents know. From beats such as ‘Cruising’, which draw similarities to that iconic 90s West-Coast sound, the 808-heavy grooves abundant in tracks such as ‘Word Around Town’, to the more lyrically raw and emotively honest songs such as ‘Moving On, the only way to truly appreciate the array of sounds he has conquered is to experience his discography for yourself.
Citing heavy influence from artists such as Kevin Gates, NBA Youngboy, Rod Wave and Roddy Rich, Li’Kev has carved out his own sound that juxtaposes melody and aggression, an ethos that can be discovered in tracks like ‘Zone’ and ‘Feeling Good’. Regularly touching on the theme of achieving your goals even when the world is against you, his music covers the spectrum of emotion — from happiness to pain, struggle, motivation, triumph, and everything in between.
Originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Li’Kev found himself growing up in a rough neighborhood. Although he made the best of a bad situation throughout, his life changed for the better when he moved to Prairieville and turned over a new leaf. While growing up was never plain sailing, adversity inevitably shaped Li’Kev to be the man he is today, as well as heavily inspiring his music and his personal pursuit for greatness.
Although he’s only been making music for four years, Li’Kev has impressively released as many albums. ‘Respect’ (2020), ‘Against The World’ (2021), BOLO (2021), and Crossroads (2021) — the latter two have gone on to truly showcase the undeniable talent and ice-cold flow that has set him apart from the other emerging hip-hop artists of the past few years.
With his recent ventures in music maturing himself as a human being and his music simultaneously, Li’Kev has his sights set on big things. He hopes to one day start his own imprint, where he can take the brightest stars of the future and pass the knowledge he’s obtained back upon them.

New Jersey is no stranger to female thoroughbreds, especially in the world of Hip- Hop. Shikiba Carr, better known by her stage name “Keishh” is no shortcoming of this testament. Born and raised in Jersey City, NJ, Kieshh’s journey began on September 10th, 1995. Like many of her counterparts, Keishh had what she describes as a “good” childhood, although surrounded by the typical trials and tribulations of the inner city streets that is Jersey City.
Being the only child raised in a single-mother home, Shikiba spent most of her time participating in school-related sports and activities. This included cotillions, cheerleading, and football, unlike the majority of her female peers. Although heavily impactful and supportive in her life, and in her music, Kieshh’s father spent most of her childhood incarcerated; forcing Shikiba to develop a toughness and savvy about herself. Raised by a lineage of early childhood educators (her mother and grandmother) Keishh was no stranger to higher education and pursued a nursing career before dropping out of college to pursue music full-time.
Beginning to write raps and do remixes with her friends at the age of 14, Ms. Carr didn’t begin to take music seriously until 3 years later, at the age of 17. The name “Keishh” was given to Shikiba by a former associate who saw parallels between Ms. Carr and “Keisha” from the movie “Belly” featuring the late – legend DMX, and Nas. Liking the name, Keishh decided to customize the moniker and run with it. When asked what pushed her into music in the first place, Ms. Carr makes it clear that it was her father that initially embraced the music vision; having a background in music himself.
A music career is a dream that she and her father began pursuing together upon his release from prison, making it not only her dream, but a vision that they both would share. Shikiba’s world would soon be turned upside down with the unexpected passing of her father, and what seemed to be the end of the dream that they had started together. Although taken back, Keishh decided to not let this end her, instead, she uses this tragedy to fuel her passion and strive even harder toward the goal that she and her late – father had set. “It would’ve been selfish of me to give up after my father passed, I have to keep going.”
With mind, body and spirit set to attack the goal at hand, Keishh transforms from the young aspiring nurse that likes to rap , to “Da Don”, an artist whose voice & presence is felt in a mob-like manner. With a chip on her shoulder to carry out her and her father’s dream , being a mom to her daughter is what pushes Keishh to work relentlessly in the studio; some would even call her a “workaholic”. Keishh began to really make a name for herself in 2018 with the release of her single “Periodt”. This underground banger attracted a great amount of attention from fans, other artists and independent labels within her city. The reception of Kieshh’s art is what made her realize how powerful her music is, and why she had to give her supporters more.
