Get Trippy With NIKO IS In His New Video For "Vamoose"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

I still need to sit down with his album, but I’m a fan of everything I’ve heard from this kid NIKO IS. The Brazil born, Orlando raised, emcee comes through with his latest visual off of his debut project, Brutus. Watch some tripped out visuals for “Vamoose.” Thanks Joey on the production and Chris Smith on the video direction. Brutus is available now via iTunes on Talib Kweli’s Javotti Media. Speaking of Kweli, you can catch him, NIKO IS, and Immortal Technique on the road all throughout March on The People’s Champion tour (dates below).
