Hailing from the streets of Côte-des-Neiges, right in the core of Montreal, Canada, NYCE aka Mista Uptown has been taking his street knowledge and turning it into music to help elevate his life and that of others for years. The charismatic and well-tatted young emcee is out to start a dialogue, to sometimes shock and to always make you laugh with his quick wit and sharp tongue.
Signing with Montreal’s Hustle Cartel, NYCE dropped his first mix tape, D’Boy Music, in July 2011 and is set to release his debut album, Certified, in Spring 2012. Produced by one of Canada’s hottest up and coming producers, Fullklip Beats, Certified is set to showcase the best of NYCE, the definition of a street hustla, in other terms, a D’Boy.
With a sharped-tongue, yet smooth and witty lyrical execution, Montreal MC NYCE has torn the roof off the motherfucker with his latest joint.” – Abort Mag
“Nyce set the semester off right with, “Dopest On The Scene,” a video-single that left audiences fiending for more. With the Hustle Cartel crew by his side, Nyce returns to follow up the success with his brand new mixtape, D’Boy Music…Nyce demonstrates his real sound skill on “MFB (Money Flippin Bricks)”, a hard-hitting rap-rock fusion, where his gritty voice fits well…dope street music.” – Urbanology Magazine
