Blessed with emcee skills from God, Richmond's 22 year old Nio Tha Gift has been rapping for almost 10 years now. Em Dub got a chance to ask him a few questions in downtown San Francisco, including how he got into hip-hop, his process for making a song, his favorite artist, and the story behind his latest album H.I.P.H.O.P. (Here I Present a Hero Of Poverty). He even spits a few new acapellas for the camera. Check out his new album, H.I.P.H.O.P., on iTunes now! And don't sleep on this brand new, Thizzler On The Roof EXCLUSIVE track from Nio off his upcoming mixtape Hero with DJ Franzen, produced by Aristotle, dropping May 1st!
