I have never been to Minneapolis, but I’ve been told by DJBooth Editor (and Twin Cities native) Richard S. that it can get pretty damn cold. However, if Nights In Minneapolis are any thing like Nikko Lafre‘s new single, it’s the damn desert; in other words, it’s hot. Places like New York and L.A. are no stranger to anthems, but now it’s Minnesota’s turn. Atop K. Beatz’ hazy production, Nikko celebrates his hometown and reminds everyone that no matter where he goes, he will always be a Minnesotan at heart. What really makes this effort work is the passion in his voice. When repping your city, you have to bring it, and Lafre most certainly brings it. This effort will appear on Nikko’s forthcoming summer project, Soul Purpose. For more of his work we encourage readers to check out his Survival: Face the World EP, which is available for stream and download via The DJBooth.
