Nixx P ……in my own words.
Ola Saludos Y Hello! This is Nixx Pineda aka El Lobo & this is my story in music.
Chapter 1: Let’s get to work!
I was born on February 17th 1979 to parents who had only been in the United states for a few years. Both my parents emigrated from the Dominican Republic for better work opportunities. I’m not sure if you could call what they found opportunities, but I can tell you they found work (& a lot of it).
Chapter 2: My inheritance
My mom once told me that the only thing that she could leave me when she was gone was my education. She busted her butt to make sure that she fulfilled that promise, and she did. I wasn’t the best athlete, I never cared to be the most popular, and I didn’t even get the best grades, but I was always the best writer. Gracias Mami!
Chapter 3: Same sh&! (new struggle)
At the same time that I was being introduced to society my best friend/sister introduced me to Hip Hop. I remember the sounds of merengue in one room, and rap in another, while arguments over nothing ensued in the background. Maria (my sister) was 14 at that time, and she had me rapping lyrics from her favorite rapper (now a legend) Kool G Rap. Unfortunately, she passed when I was 10, and my way of getting through this and was to write more creatively. It started with poems, but then expanded into almost every form of creative writing that exists. I figured S&%t …it’s all related!
Chapter 5: bad habits/good habits
My writing got me College credits while I hadn’t even graduated from high school. I was already on my 3rd job at that time, and recording my first album, while being enrolled in school full time. I would like to say that it was all the pressure, but that would be a lie. I developed a serious drinking problem by the time I was 21, and my break from school (to drink & make up for the partying I had missed) got longer & longer. I eventually curbed my drinking habit, but not my working & recording habits. Those became the one constant while all sorts of other madness ensued.
Chapter 6: Blue Collar (SHOWTIME!)
I have been a bike messenger, a stock boy, an errand boy, a cashier, a cab driver, and an operator among other things. At the same time that I was working regular jobs I was doing shows, recording songs, battling rappers, and doing street promotions for my own records. I performed at the Puerto Rican Festival, The Neuyorican, City College, and the Bowery Poetry Club to name a few. In 1999 I met a man by the name of Tommy Chase Harrell. With Tommy’s assistance I started Blue Collar LLC, Performed at Little Pedro’s in Los Angeles, and will soon be at the Hard Rock Café in Puerto Rico. The downloads are 200,000 and counting, e-mails come in daily from people from all over the globe, and we’re just getting started!
Theres more….waaay more, but that’s what I’ll leave you with for now. If ya wanna know more ya gotta get those records!
