Niko Sheffield is an MC/writer from Richmond, VA. On May 11, 2013 he graduated from Elizabeth City State University earning his degree in English with a concentration in Creative Writing. As a writer he's had poems published through online literary websites such as Writing Raw, MilkSugar and his short stories have been featured on Quail Bell, a literary magazine that he interned with in the summer of 2012. As a rapper he was the lyricist & lead vocalist of the alternative hip-hop band TiME Moves which he co-founded in 2009 with his cousin Reggie Volume. He and the band have had the opportunity to open for artists such as Wale, Jim Jones, and headline an event called Epicfest in his hometown of Richmond, VA. Currently he is working on "Theory of Insight," a musical project that will follow up his debut EP Theory of Impulse, which was released on 4/20 of 2013 to critical acclaim.
Though only 21 years of age, Niko has high aspirations. Aside from rapping he plans to be seen as one of the greatest writers of his generation by establishing his name as a novelist, screenwriter, and video director. Showing off his knack for film, he has directed and edited each video that was released by his old band TiME Moves as well as the debut video for upcoming songstress Bri Blvck. With an imagination as wild as Niko's, there's no telling how the world will react when he fully comes into fruition.
