This week on the show I’m featuring Rony Nikke from right here in NYC! He’s not originally from here though, as it goes, Nikke is from the island of the Dominican Republic. He’s having a bit of trouble breaking out here in the city so he formulated a plan in the summer to go back to his home country to “get famous” and then bring that fame back here to NYC, where he believes it’s easier to skate by if you already have a name. He did the first round of that in July and he’s planning on going back to the DR soon. He’s had a number of singles out, most notably “La Vela,” but as we were speaking he was in the middle of recording his new album Sol de Caribe. We discussed the Dominican Day Parade, his “get famous quick” scheme, and how Rony Nikke likes to party with the lights off.
