Long Island rapper Nikmoody returns with raw and visceral confession Union Square, featuring singer-songwriter Sasha Prendes.
A 1,000-point scorer in high school and college, Nik transformed his passion for the game of basketball into a love for the pen. Long Island’s Nikmoody has been writing his entire life. Short stories, poems, screenplays and lyrics have flooded his notebooks from an early age. His love for writing transitioned into music after he tore his ACL. Although that ended hopes of a continued basketball career overseas. Hip-hop became his outlet.
He released his first EP, “House Of Mirrors“, in 2017. Since then Nik has released 8 singles and 10 music videos and a brand new EP. He performed at SXSW, headlined at SOB’s, freestyled on Shade 45 and opened for artists like Wyclef Jean, Dizzy Wright, Raz Simone and KOTA The Friend.
In his newest music release “Union Square” depicts a lamentation of lost love, Sasha’s soul-tinged vocals unite with Nik’s intimate and candid lyricism on this melancholic, melodic track.
The video, shot by Luke DiCola, is a stark visualisation, re-enacting a reflective ‘walk of shame’ spliced with flashbacks from his destructive, doomed relationship.
