16 Jan EP83: Nitro
An Oklahoma legend stops by the show and lays out the game. With roots in Spencer, Nitro is no stranger to hustle. After picking up the mic at 12, he’d go on to take Oklahoma Hip Hop to places it had never been and hasn’t been since. The unprecedented success of hit-single “Hennessy” helped position Nitro to be a forerunner for his camp. Two decades later, the artist, father, and businessman hasn’t missed a beat. Nitro breaks down the economics of the music industry, being an independent artist, and what it takes to make it. Spoiler alert: the secret isn’t talent. With the strategy of a coach and the agility of a player, Nitro is still in the studio, making music, developing artists, and networking throughout the industry.
