Check Orlando-raised MC NIKO IS on this dope new visual for “Ballon d’Or,” a track produced by Thanks Joey off of his brand new Good Blood release. Video by Kyle O’Brien.
The title is the literal English translation of the Brazilian term, ‘Sangue Bom.’ Good Blood is mostly produced by Thanks Joey apart from a cut by Krikos and a self-produced NIKO IS record. Thanks Joey invokes the continuously evolving Brazilian sample-heavy style of hip hop production for which he has become known for. The project will feature the rapgenius released ‘Ballon d’Or,’ along with many other stand outs. The up and coming wordsmith is fresh off forging an alliance with industry veteran Talib Kweli and his Javotti Media imprint. With this sort of backing and a relentless ethic to get better with every release, 2014 will be nothing short of spectacular for the big haired Brazilian.
