Exclusive Interview with Louisville Rapper, Rob Niece

Rob Niece is that new level, new school rapper that everybody is about to be checking for. He has a nice, smooth flow as heard on his new video “Not Another Bounce”. We got a chance to talk to Louisville rapper about his new video, his newly release mix tape, “Metta World Niece,what he thinks about the hip hop scene in Louisville, and if he is rocking Kentucky Blue or Louisville Red…

1. What is up with Rob Niece right now?

A lot man, just threw this contest with Radio Now and iHeart radio where we gave away 400 bucks, a radio interview and some studio time….
Plus I just dropped my 15 track project called “Metta World Niece” Its really crazy top to bottom man. It makes mixtapes look like trash and albums look average.
So yea theres a lot going on man but still Im pushing to take it to the next level thats what its all about….More.

2. You have a new video out, “Not Another Bounce”, can you tell us about that record and video?

Man it was one of the last tracks to be made for Metta actually I did the whole thing in like 20 minutes sent it to B. Then we shot the video.
Pretty simple really, Russ Smith and Chris Smith happened to be in the club that night so they made a lil cameo to make it even doper.
My man Matt Fulks is the coldest with a camera. Period. Mad Fox Productions is on the rise, trust me.

3. You are from Louisville, Kentucky, and since we are basketball blog as well as hip hop, when the Cards play the Cats what color do you have on?

If you see me in blue I’ve lost a bet or went color blind. (laughs)

4. Who do you think is the greatest basketball player from the state of Kentucky?

You have to say Darrell Griffith hands down, what his teams did back in the ’80s was simply amazing. They built the program to what it is today.

(we love Darrell here at hot16s peep the video below)


5. If you had to pick a coach, to coach one game to win a $1 Billion Dollars, would you go with Rick Pitino, Denny Crum, John Calipari, Adolph Rupp, or Pat Riley?

I’m a have to go with Denny. Denny always knew how to use his role players and understoods streaks. If you were having an off night he is gonna find the guy who isnt.
A lot of coaches dont make adjustments very well, and to me thats what makes a great coach.

6. Back to hip hop, are you currently pushing a mix tape, project, or album?
Yea like i mentioned before “Metta World Niece” just dropped on July, 2nd. 15 tracks only one industry beat on the whole project, I produced like 6 tracks on it,
its just ridiculous. It’s an album. It has club songs, radio songs, slow songs, deep songs, i really showed my versatility on this one. No fan wants to listen to
20 club records or 20 slow songs. They want variety all in one album and thats what I did. Plus im selling the online dowload for free all you gotta do is follow me and mention me.


And the hard copies in full cases wrapped and everything are only 5 bucks. Nobody is doing this shit on my level. Nobody. But like I said before I want the next level.
Im not tryna be the best in my city im tryna be the best in the world.

7. How do you feel that Louisville sits as far as putting out solid hip hop acts?

The state of Kentucky is mostly a country music hub everybody knows that, but Louisville itself has some talented artists. Tra-duce, Double J, B Simm, Matt Vicente, thats just four guys
that can blow at any point. No rapper has ever blown up from here though. And when i say blow up i mean to the point where they are consistently on BET/MTV with their video. You could say Nappy
Roots but that was for a short period of time. And during that time im sure other rappers in the city were getting looked at becuase of what Nappy did. When ONE artists blows up from Louisville it will open the door for everyone else. Atlanta didnt always put out as many rappers as they do now, LA and New York used to be the hub. It can change overnight.

8. Would you rather freestyle or write?

I do both, sometimes just go in the studio and completely go off the dome. Other times ill have a verse in my head that ive been thinkin about for a few days and just spit it, but as of recent i really dont put things on paper or in my phone anymore. Its just all in my head.

9. What are somethings you need in the studio?

Silence and my thoughts.

10. Do you have a favorite MC, that you always check for, but he isn’t a big name?

Yeah, to me is the best of all time. But Yea there is this guy outta chicago named Wonda and he makes amazing music. Its like a mix of Cudi and Kendrick. You def need to go check em out, I might have to bring him to louisville at some point to do a show with me.

11. Are you currently touring this summer?

In a way i have a few shows booked in some places around louisville and a few across the bridge. But no nation wide tours right now. Currently looking to expand in other states though.

12. Can we expect a major retail release from you in 2013?

We will see. I have a few moves im looking to make, but you just have to wait see.

13. Where can the people find you at online?

NotAnotherRapBlog.blogspot.com or on twitter @RobNiece

14. Do yo have any last shout outs or thoughts you would like to share?

Just shout out to my management team and everybody T, E. Large…..and my man Double J he def got some big things coming too. We are “Not Another”
and we plan to continue setting the bar higher and higher.
