Musically speaking, New York native, Nickodemus, is probably as open-minded as it gets. Born and raised between Queens and Long Island, Nico's household proved to be the foundation for his longstanding affair with music. "Up until the time when hip hop exploded, music in our house was always like a festivity. It was always either a party or a dance or just to celebrate good times. My parents constantly had music flooding in and out of the living room; they were listening to Motown, disco and loads of Latin music. It was always good mood."
