Watch Now: NIKO IS - 3RD WORLD $$$ (feat. Curren$y) [prod. Thanks Joey]


Chill recognize chill on “3RD WORLD $$$,” the latest UNIKO cut to find itself on the receiving end of an official visual treatment. Throughout the vibe-laden record, NIKO IS trades verses with the legendary Curren$y, once again manifesting dreams into realities here in the physical. The best hair in the biz used to stand outside Spitta’s bus, hoping to connect with the emcee over Mother Earth’s finest flowers – the Universe had different plans, however, and now the stars are aligning in the purest of ways, with the two artists coming together on wax.

Directed by Trapsolutely, the accompanying music video features sultry visual edits that serve to add a unique dimension to the viewing experience. It feels like “3RD WORLD $$$” is situated between history and modern times, floating in its own placement within the space-time continuum. And this fits NIKO’s chilluminated essence, as the Florida-based traveler simultaneously makes history while continuing to write his story today.

NIKO laces Thanks Joey’s vibrant instrumentation with deservedly braggadocious prose, keeping the bars grounded in a humble recognition of where he came from and where he’s at. It’s not a brag when he fills the sonic landscape with facts, gratitude and mindful awareness as his buttery delivery comes through in the form of an engaging and ethereal flow. The juxtaposition of the title is enough to send your mind into a tailspin of thought, so even before the listener presses play, the brain is working in overtime. And when NIKO and Curren$y start kicking poignant rhymes, “3RD WORLD $$$” takes on a life of its own.

“3RD WORLD $$$” lives on NIKO’s UNIKO, which is available now on all your favorite streaming platforms.
