Behind the Grynd Episode 5, it's here! This time I chopped it with Brooklyn Emcee/ Writer the prolific, dynamic and always relevant, Sky Zoo. It is always a pleasure to sit down with dope individuals such as Sky but I was most definitely honored to have this opportunity. We talked about everything from how it felt growing up on the same block as Biggie to what he finds most attractive about a woman, to signing with Duck Down and more. We also discussed his latest project with Detroit based producer Apollo Brown "The Easy Truth" which is becoming my favorite album of the year. Like seriously, I cant stop listening to it. The whole album is so well produced but Visionary Riches, Nodding Off, They Park a Bentley on the Corner and Care Packages are on repeat. Salute to Sky Zoo definitely one of the dopest lyricist in this game, great interview! Make sure yall cop "The Easy Truth" available where music is sold... thank me later ; )

Ok, as a self proclaimed "Apple Head" I am always excited to see what Apple is going to do next but lately there hasn't been much to anticipate. As most people who know me know I think once Steve died so did the innovation and ingenuity that Apple was always known for did, but I still have hope because although I think Apple has a superior OS than an Android they have plateaued and this latest reveal confirmed just that. This College Humor video hit the nail on the head. Sure super mario is great and even the air pod are dope but at $160 how practical is that. The only thing that impressed me was were those things and the camera which is great in theory but they to me have always had a crappy camera so I honestly don't believe the hype but we'll see... Overall if they don't step it up iPhones will be outta here as they have already been somewhat shunned by the younger generation.
This is a dope piece on not only how far Hip-Hop has come but how the culture was cultivated and some the key players who lead the journey. Although the industry has evolved over time what remains and should is that Hip-Hop is not about violence its about fun, peace and community. The foundation it was built on should never be forgotten. - Nia Boom

Opening up for acts like Future and Tweet this Delaware sensation is buzzing and this joint right here is for the ladiezzzz Salute to Mylezia keep a look out for her she is just getting started! #OntheRadar - Nia Boom
Lloyd is back and that makes me happy. I like Lloyd he just has this beautiful vibe about him and he is as transparent than he's ever been which I always appreciate in an artist. As a matter of fact I think it's necessary. Now I don't know him personally but since he's been out of the spotlight he has been going through a lot; from losing a child to battle addiction but he has not given up. #Respect Recently learning to play guitar, Lloyd's talent is undeniable no matter what the circumstances you cant deny his talent, passion and pure heart he puts in his art. The lyrics to this are therapeutic and I think something we can all relate to "This is me, please accept me for who I am and please accept me for what I do because theres no me without you" #Tru - Nia Boom #Subscribe #Comment #Share
I can exhale now :) I have been waiting for this production to air ever since I heard about the casting sometime last year. I sent my info in but they never called me :( but anyways this production is so necessary right now. I'm so tired of watching the same types of bland shows. It's refreshing to see something different. From the wardrobe to the soundtrack all the elements come together so perfectly. With NAS serving as executive producer theres no doubt that hip-hop will be a intricately and beautifully represented -
Check out this dope interview on Beats 1with Ebro + Janelle Monae talking about Netflix's dope new series and her appearance in the up coming film about the unsung black women who helped the first man get to the moon. Can't waiiiit to see it wow. Janelle is gettin it #Salute.

Click here to see some pics of me and some people! Looking forward to next!
Ayye! I got a cameo! Shoutouts to @DaBoyway! and the homie Nichy I reaaally enjoyed being apart of this production, as you can probably tell in the video. It was so much fun and Hennessy was on deck! I really appreciated that. Special shoutout to Hennessy they never disappoint ; ) This song is so much fun about as much fun as it was doing the video :)) I like the chill, laidback type vibe and yes thats me with my tongue sticking out! I been doin that a lot lately dont know wussup with that but heeey! lol - Nia Boom #Supportthereal

With the addition of Dj Luke Nasty and Mack Wilds this track is setting the air waves on fiiire request it on your station #catchthewave and make sure you comment and share #Mypieceshittin - Nia Boom
These are the kinds of interviews that remind of just how important the work of a journalist/ radio personality, reporter etc is. It is a voice for the people who cannot be heard. Media is very powerful tool and we need to use it appropriately and purposefully. Every interview I do I want people to be able to take something from it and I took a whoooole lot from this is one. Dr Umar broke down exactly why we as black people are in the state we are in and what we need to do to free ourselves from the bondage that we have been subjected to since we were brought to this country. Great interview thanks BC we needed this. #Unitedwemuststand #Weareatwar
It was the 12th annual #BKHipHopFest this past weekend in NY which is always lit but even more so this year because I had the pleasure of meeting this dope individual. I'll admit I was a little late on this one as I just got put on a couple months ago but as soon as I heard his voice I knew he was something different, something special. In a world of Futures and Young Thugs, Nick Grant is a minty breathe of fresh air... With Jason Geter behind his movement, Nick is well on his way to greatness. "Window Seat" was one of the first joints I heard and immediately knew he was a lyricist, not a rapper. Someone who is delicate with his words and demeanor. Someone who understands and truly respects the art of hiphop. His latest release "Black Sinatra" is classy, poetic, pure hiphop South Cacklacky you say lol. Yup but reminiscent of Nas, Nick Grant may just be hiphop's next savior #younglegend #BlackSinatra #NickGrant #NiaBoom

In the first episode of “Global Spin Presents: Respect The DJ,” GSA follows host of Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, DJ Envy, for 48-hours. The cameras follow Envy as he hustles through the streets of New York, balancing work at his hit morning show, family life and DJ life, as well as his businesses and nightlife. The episode allows you an intimate look into why DJs like Envy are the music industry’s next moguls. I am beyond excited about this series as it is much needed!. I am fairly new to the game and still have a lot to learn but these days a DJ isnt just a DJ. They are promoters, business owners, Emcees, etc. This episode is perfect from start to finish. hope to apart of this production oneday #SalutetheDJ

Co founder of the legendary Roc-a-Fella records, Kareem Burke aka "Hoffa" has recently resurfaced after serving a 4 year stint in federal prison for drug conspiracy. Feds found 2 million dollars in cash and over 200 lbs of high-grade on him in 2012 during the "Green Venom" operation. Since his release Burke has been very low key until now (Thankfully) This dude has so much priceless knowledge and Hiphop history to share Salute to Rap Radar great interview, check it out and let me know your thoughts #NiaBoom #SupporttheReal
A performance so captivating I HAD to stop what I was doin and capture the moment. I was in the back of the club waiting for Antonique Smith to come out when I heard Justo Ontario on stage. I was just going to get a couple clips but I couldn't stop... Like honestly his voice radiated throughout the entire venue and I was literally summoned lol. It's rare you find artists with such substance, but these last couple weeks I have been blessed...and I'm excited to not only hear, but experience what these talented and true artists have in store. Special thanks to Justo and Ressa Renee, Sob's and Sol Village #SupportTheReal #NiaBoom #NYC
Producers are usually the additive. The one who provides the artist with the proper tools to be their best selves in the booth, but what happens when the producer begins to outshine the artists. It doesn't happen often but when it does it usually comes in the form of a Timberland, Just Blaze, Dj Premier, Kanye West etc and now Metro Boomin... His name definitely precedes his work and that only happens when your work is so well produced that your name floats around until people are force to ask "Who is this person? Although I wasn't turned on to Metro immediately when I was I realized how extensive his talent is. I like this dude... and not just because of his production value. He is humble, hardworking and talented I think he's gonna be around for a while... And don't forget if he don't trust you.... haha! Good interview, Salute @StreetzisWatchin #Shade45
Yay I got an autograph! yea I'm on my groupie shiiii :) Major Shoutout to Pusha T, GOOD Music and my NY Fleet fam DJ Nsew for rocking out he had the whole catalog! Make sure y'all check out Pusha T's new line "Play Clothes" it's pretty dope. - Nia Boom #SupporttheReal

After my dope radio interview with the phenomenal Antonique Smith a couple weeks ago she invited me to come catch her at Sol Village at SOB's and I'm soooo glad I did. My God this woman is amazing... I got there kind of early and met up with RA ( heyyy RA :) and got a chance to go back stage to meet her before the show. She was soooo sweet and kind and even though she was getting ready she took the time to take a pic with me (ok 3 or 4 and I still didn't get it right smh) but anyhow I was thrilled to be in her presence...
The night was filled with artisty of all kinds. Issa from the Bronx, Eye of Justo aka Justo Ontarioand Reesa Renee were some of the other artists that caught my attention (check out their video next :) but when Antonique hit the stage, it lit up! From the big screen in the movie "Notorious" to Rent on Broadway this multi-talented Grammy Nominated Singer/Actress is someone you definitely need on your radar… Check out her latest release "All we have is Now" and her Grammy Nominated "Hold Up wait a minute"! she will not disappoint #thankmelater. #Supportthereal #ThaBoomShow #DjNiaBoom

Jon Conner, Vic Mensa, Jesse Williams, Jasari X, and more come together to raise money and awareness for the water crisis crippling the city of Flint Michigan. After ignoring several warnings the city's water system and pipes are now completely containment with Lead. Oh and on top of that while trying to fix the massive crisis the city is still charging it's customers for water! Wasn't until 2 days ago that the Mayor decided to stop billing residents. Are they serious? That is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard in life. Meanwhile the city still owes almost 2 million dollars in legal fees that will come from public money. Although government officials have apologized and admitted failure at all levels of administration the damage is done. Whose to say this won't happen again in any city in America at any time, It's dope these artists came together in support of a great cause. This is not just a problem for the residents of Flint its a wake up call for all of us. - NiA BooM
