Nique is a confident and trappy artist who goes and lives by the lifestyle of “street smart, book smart”. While attending Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan as a student-athlete (football), he believed that blowing your refund check on unnecessary things that the average college student would was a bit absurd.

With Detroit being a music heavy city that expressed their life through lyrics, Nique was influenced and thought why not him.
