Chicago’s rising star Imani Nichele releases new single, “sweatergawd.”, produced by Nolan The Ninja.

After premiering her last release on Apple Music 1’s Discovered show back in March, Imani Nichele is back with a new offering titled “sweatergawd. (freestyle)”.

Produced by familiar underground name Nolan The Ninja, the track is only just over a minute long.

It feels more than complete in her delivery—clearly heavily hip-hop inspired—almost as if it’s alluding to what musical greatness is inevitably following from the skilled Chicago-based writer in 2024.

Imani discusses the new song…

This is really just a warmup but ‘sweatergawd.’ was so much fun to make! I don’t think any artist enjoys being rushed or feeling like there is a window for when they can or will be received. I know when I’m here, you’ll feel it. Every time, the proof will always be the quality of my art.”

Imani Nichele is a Chicago-based 22-year old poet, rapper, singer/songwriter, and DJ.

Born and raised in Detroit, her work has diverse influences on spectrums between alternative, folk, and underground Hip-Hop.

During her teenage years, she was active in poetry workshops and even wrote a book at the age of 17.

After excelling in the community and serving as the 2018 Detroit Youth Poet Laureate, she began to pursue music and released her 4-track EP, ‘WELLNESS CHECKin’ 2022.

In addition to being a solo artist, she is co-founder of DJ duo 22xS under the alias “Mani duh Mixer”.

Aside from her marrying melancholic melodies, the young artist has also toured; traveling overseas and US spot dates.

Currently, Imani is working on a new project with more show dates to be announced soon.
