In true Sweet Petey fashion, Nickelus F hits us with a brand new, trippy visual to accompany his hit single, “Laced Weed.” If you are a frequent Flagrant City visitor, or a fan of our yearly compilation mixtapes with DJ Tiger, then you’ve heard this track on Illicit Activities 7 (download the single on iTunes) or you checked out the chopped not slopped version we did with DJ Slim K (download on Soundcloud).

Lowe and Kenzo of Flagrant City (The FC) have spent over 2 years bringing together Houston DJ Slim K and Richmond’s own Nickelus F for a Chopped Not Slopped mash up of Sweet Petey’s most recent album release TRIFLIN‘, which is available for purchase on iTunes here: TRIFLIN’ (iTunes)
Nick contacted Lowe via Twitter in May 2013 after we released our yearly compilation Illicit Activities 4: Prey IV Reign which featured a never-been-done-before double album: the classic FC mix by DJ Tiger and a special chopped not slopped alternate mix by Chopstars DJ Slim K. Nickelus F heard his track “Tanqueray” , which is from the 2013 VICES album chopped & screwed, and he just knew he had to have an EXCLUSIVE EP mixed in the future. Kenzo got Slim K on board for the collab and the rest they say is music history.
Also, something worth mentioning, the original TRIFLIN’ Album release in August made it to #58 on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B chart in its first week!!!
A special thank you from Sweet Petey was authored on his Instagram page to commemorate the occasion: “Thank you all. We’re doing this starting from zero with no help, just hard work and dedication. I made this album in a cramped storage closet. Please continue to share the music with everyone you know. And please when you post use the hashtag #TRIFLINALBUM
My voice is Your voice.. – Petey”

Could these two teasers be the upcoming visuals from TRIFLIN‘ perhaps? The visual clip above features the track “Obnoxious” set in a club with crazy dancing going on. The teaser below plays the reprise for the “Vibes” cut off the TRIFLIN‘ album.
We’ve got a new, impromptu, exclusive track by Richmond, VA’s Nickelus F. This cat is no stranger to Flagrant City, as he was featured on three of our latest projects: Illicit Activities V, mixed by DJ Tiger from this past 420, and Illicit Activities IV: Prey IV Reign, with two separate mixes from DJ Slim K out of Houston, TX and DJ Tiger of NYC.
This particular track Nickelus F produces the cut himself and asks for fans and listeners to give him some much appreciated feedback after jamming this in the whip. Click the stream link below to listen and comment on this post with your thoughts!
Also check out this oldie but goodie from Nickelus F, which was featured on both versions of Illicit Activities IV: Prey IV Reign (available for download below), the video for the hit underground single “Tanqueray,” off of the album VICES.
