Still working on that hot first release.



Niki Ellis was born in 1987 in New Britain, CT.  Since birth, music was a big part of her life.  Her father was a DJ, and listening to the records he would spin was daily routine.  The first time she could remember hearing female emcees was on Lil Kim’s 1997 Smash “Not Tonight (Remix).”  Since that day she fell in love with the idea of being a female rapper, and from that point on Rap music became her life.  She started writing verses, when she was 8 years old and moved her way up to full songs by middle school.  She did her first performance in the 7th grade at a local talent show.  She was the only act to receive a standing ovation, and at that moment she knew that music had to be what she would do with the rest of her life.  She won numerous talent shows throughout high school and took the First and only prize at a University of Connecticut talent showcase.  Through the years she has gone through many trials and tribulations to prove herself as a strong female emcee.  She used all that fuel to add to the fire in her heart and took her confidence, technique and skills to a whole new level.  She joined the Air Force when she was 21 and used it to help further her career.  She has made musical connections all over the world and has been able to grace the stage from her home state, all the way to Japan.  Now settled back in Connecticut, she has released her first EP entitled “Beautiful Struggle” featuring her singles “Live in the Sky,” “All Night Long” and “Carry On.”  She has been featured on multiple Hip Hop blog sites including Hot 93.7’s “Up Next” Artist Spotlight.  She has recently released her new project Unexpected featuring her singles "Feel Good" ft. Autuore M.A.Y.A. and "Do Ya" ft. Elisha Richards.  With her drive, dedication, determination and unconditional love for Hip Hop music, it won’t be long before Niki Ellis is a well-known household name.
