Lower East Side spitter Fokis says:
"In life their will always be obstacles & people who doubt you, the key is use that as fuel to help you over come it in a big way"
"Tidal Wave", the new single by Fokis, Nio Tha Gift, & Livin Proof, is a true testament to that statement. Fokis, while engineering on a bus transformed into a mobile studio down in SXSW a few years ago, recorded a ton of artists. One of those artists was Nio Tha Gift, from the Bay Area of California.
"I must have recorded over 100 rappers over the course of 3 days, when I heard Nio Tha Gift spit my hairs stood up. He was good, I mean really good so I was sure to stay in contact with him."
Livin Proof, who ran with Memphis Bleek & the good folks over at Roc-A-Fella Records for many years, is a seasoned artist out of Brooklyn ready to claim his place in this business. He has worked with Scott Storch, Just Blaze, Joell Ortiz, & many more.
"Livin Proof is an amazing artist and he actually shares a lot of similarities with Nio Tha Gift. I couldn't wait to get the 2 of them on a song together. It's about building these bridges & coming together for one common goal & that's to win." -Fokis
