Chicago born singer, song writer, rapper and entertainer, Nikki Lynette keeps us fresh and relevant.
Nikki Lynette is a recording artist from Chicago, Illinois who’s penchant for promotions, branding, & digital strategy has made her a very popular girl. She received her first nationwide recognition in 2010 after winning 2nd place in Ourstage/New Music Seminar’s “Artist on the Verge Competition.” As a result, MTV offered her a music licensing deal, landing her music on several of the networks top rated reality shows. Soon after, Nikki’s fans formed a movement around her music and dubbed themselves Team Bad Ass. “We call ourselves Team Bad Ass because we’re not like everybody,” Nikki explains. “We respect individuality and do what we want to do. We don’t care what anybody thinks.”
It is this same profound sense of individuality that has been the cornerstone of Nikki’s existence, earning her accolades from entertainment industry professionals ranging from URB magazine founder Raymond Roker to Chicago’s own Lupe Fiasco. To date, Nikki Lynette has licensed music to shows on dozens of networks and recently signed an agreement with Viacom Media Networks for use of all of her original music on their networks.
Her first video game placement was for the theme song on Hasbro’s Twistermania, on Xbox Kinect. Her experience includes work with McDonald’s, MTV, Hasbro, Showtime, Fox, Oxygen, Gateway Computers, Secret Deodorant, Nationwide Insurance, DeVry Institute, and more.
Lynette’s self-promoted Roses N’ Guns mixtape series, her EP The Strong Survive, as well as her opinionated blogs have garnered her significant press, including features by magazines such as XXL, Bust, Jet, Vibe, Complex, and more, and even earned her kudos from Whoopi Goldberg and a feature on The View. She recently was invited to write for Red Eye, Chicago’s premiere pop-culture & entertainment newspaper, discussing her music, life, and opinions. Nikki is currently in the studio working on her next EP, Respect My Disrespect. She uses her penchant for entertainement and shameless self promotion to help Sugar Gamers take over the world. Her video games of choice are Naughty Bea0, Little Big Planett, and the vintage Mario Brothers 3.
