“What I’ve set out to convey in creating the mixtape is that I’m back on the scene and I still have points to make.” –3LetterzNuk
After working tirelessly in honing his craft, 3LetterzNuk garnered some of his first major support from global superstar Flo Rida in 2015, who signed his first record deal to IMG and onboarded him as an opening act for his globe trotting world tour. 2017 marked the start of new ventures upon signing with ZENtertainment/Sony Music, leading to landmark collaborations with pop mega talent such as Aaron Carter, where he was featured on Aaron’s 2018 comeback single “Fool’s Gold“, boasting well over 9 million streams worldwide. The same year saw a named collaboration with Marco Foster “I Wonder“, independently amassing over 1.6 million streams to date, and given the rising artists trajectory and track record it’s safe to assume the I’m Back mixtape has what it takes to make even more of an impact.
Taking pride in his favorite aspects of his artistic process, 3LetterzNuk has an affinity to harmonies, melody and illustrative depictions of the scenes in his mind of which he manifests through his songwriting, production, and ultimately, his performances. Drawing early inspiration from classic R&B and soul, artists such as The Jacksons, Jaheim, Anthony Hamilton, Ne-Yo, Kem, and Brian McKnight would later become monumental in his career. Taking what was once innate, raw talent, an early career comprised of countless self-taught hours, days, weeks, and years spent honing his craft through syllables, octaves, metaphors, beats, and carefully curated samples–3LetterzNuk is back with truly refined poise.
