Chicago’s Award Winning Queen of Afro-Punk Nikki Lynette to Release The Strong Survive & The Popularity Contest

Listen to Lead Singles “Chicago Sunrise” & “The Strong Survive”

(August 30, 2010 – Los Angeles, California) – When the zeitgeist of the day is hustle over talent, it’s increasingly rare to find an artist with the ingenuity to seamlessly intersect these seemingly uncorrelated criteria. But with a salacious flick of her tongue and a flip of her middle finger, Nikki Lynette steps out of her spacecraft fresh from a planet called Chicago. Envision a rapper/ singer/ producer/ songwriter/ on-air personality/ multi-media visual artist sporting fishnet stockings, a black leather corset, heels, and a flowing mane of dreads with a pink teddy bear in tow. Truth be told, you’d be hard pressed to find another artist who can flip so fluidly between spitfire flows and melodic vocals flaunting a sass & brash mash up of electro, hip-hop, rock, and pop. Male or female.
