About Nate Nics

Nate Nics got his start in music as a West African drummer and poet as a 7 year old in Boston, MA. After experiencing several racially charged incidents that forced him to switch schools throughout his childhood he developed a knack for advocating against injustice in any form. However, for middle school he started attending a rigid charter school that offered little in the areas of music and social studies so his skill in his once primary focus areas became stagnant and dulled. It wasn’t until his senior year of high school at the age of 17 that he started rapping as a way to express himself.  It wasn’t until his senior year of high school at the age of 17 that he started rapping as a way to express himself. After a few successful stints showcasing his abilities in cyphers and freestyle sessions he quickly became known in that community as a rapper and helped start a collective of classmates and fellow artists called Abstract Society of General Fallacies (ASGF).
