MIXTAPE: Nike Nando x ICON: Lord of the Flyy

SNN_ILOTF_ARTWORKNike Nando releases his highly anticipated mixtape ICON: Lord of the Flyy, which can be downloaded here. Take a look at what Nike had to say about making the project:

2007 I took a leap of faith and decided that I was gonna pursue music full-time with little to no experience in the music business. My goals have been to connect with teens like me who’ve been abused (physically & sexually) and give them inspiration by showing them that no matter how rough life can be, you can channel your energy into something that is positive and prosper. Over the past few years I’ve release a number of projects that represents different stages in my life reflecting on what I’ve experienced and ICON is no different…I felt that this word is an extension of me. I believe that I am a symbol of the misunderstood generation. The have-not’s who fight for what they believe in even if it’s not popular opinion. The past 2 years for Fernando Moore have not been that great, but it created inspiration for my greatest work to date. This is a summer soundtrack for anyone who enjoys Sandy Beaches, Summer Love & Break-up stories, Fashion, Art and everything else in between. It also talks about how unhappy I am with the current state of hip-hop in my hometown.
