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”

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.

New music from Pittsburgh playa Mario Dones featuring Texas champ, Nick Pratt and Slo-Mo is a track called “Antarctica” and just based on the title alone, I don’t have to tell you that this song is cold.
With Zaire back on the beats, Dones felt it was only right to drop off this joint which features his close friend, Nick Pratt and Mr. Motionopolis himself. Nick just dropped of a new video for his joint “Vices” – check that joint out below. The debut album is being finalized, stay tuned for updates and more new music.

Straight outta Funkytown, rising emcee Nick Pratt is back with a crisp visual entitled “Vices,” where he tells us his story in an intimate setting, a simple day’s journey through the Texas streets.
If the sample in this Cassius G produced record sounds familiar, that’s because Nick’s upcoming project The Badu Sessions EP is an entire concept album with production and lyrics inspired by the great Erykah Badu. Be on the lookout for it when it drops on my birthday, April 15th, exclusively on DJBooth.net.
