Over the last few months I’ve noticed that former T La Rock beatbox and Nice & Smooth member Greg Nice has been getting kinda busy. Although he hasn’t put out a record in a minute, he’s guested on a few Beatnuts tracks as well as keeping busy lending his voice to car commercials and the like, but right now he seems to be everywhere – beatboxing for Rakim here, hype man for Sadat X there – not to mention a few shows with Smooth B.
Not content with these hypeman duties, he’s also been recording new joints. “Work It Out” is classic N-I-C-E, as featured on a recent J-Love CD, while he also teamed-up with Sadat X for a track off Black October. Not to mention he provides the chorus to Cormega and Lake‘s “Don’t Start”. His mans Smooth B isn’t resting on his laurels either, as he did a single with DJ Premier last year. I’m not sure if they’ll be another Nice & Smooth album or if they’re going to stick to solo projects, but either way I’m glad to hear Greg doing his thing. Don’t sleep on his production skills either, he flipped the beats for his solo shot and the Sadat piece.
