Being an artist can provide an outlet to create a completely unique personality. If you go all in there is no need to have it even based on reality. Be original and be innovative. Our recent discovery Mellah Nix is quite an interesting character, to say the least.
The rising star originally hails from Columbus, Ohio but is now the embodiment of Planit-X. Music has been a big part of the life of Mellah Nix. His Blues-loving grandfather was a huge influence as well as his mother who supported Mellah to be the true original he has become.
The style that Mellah Nix has created is called Sp8ceRap and he lives the #NerdL1fe. Although based in Hip-Hop, his sound will make you question everything about the old genre. The latest track to hit the airwaves is the incredible “Tipn The Crown.”
He attacks right from the first verse with an aggression that draws immediate attention. The beat has a way of rolling along while becoming an anthem. You will find your head bopping throughout the track. For me, there was a motivation struck from the lyrics of Mellah Nix. I hope everyone feels as empowered as I do right now.
