The past few years have seen great leaps made for diversity with more and more audiences becoming open to more nontraditional sounds and eccentric personalities of all types; regardless of race, gender, or sexuality. One of the greatest examples of this phenomenon is the rise of Bounce culture’s presence on a global scale. Rappers like Big Freedia, Katy Red, and Sissy Nobby have opened the door, and with a more expansive appreciation, Bounce music can now evolve. Enter Nicky Da B.

Nicky Da B represents the next generation of Bounce rappers. While his contemporaries thrive on big personality and heavy verses, Nicky Da B projects a sleek and refined style, with explicit lyricism and lightening swift vocal rhythms that speak to the more vocal characteristics of Bounce. His recent collaboration with Mad Decent bossman, Diplo, continues to rotate on NPR and MTV with additional praise from The FADER, Pitchfork, and Stereogum; securing him as the torchbearer for the future of Bounce.

Nicky Da B will be performing tonight at Los Globos. Joining him will be MNDR, BLOK, and Paul Devro. Be sure to pick up his collaboration with Diplo, Express Yourself, out now on Mad Decent.

Tickets are available HERE.
