"If you know anything about my music or the Team Bad Ass movement, then you probably already know that I do A LOT of genre blending and my lyrics come from my heart...Even the ones that make me look like a jerk. I am still an independent artist, so I totally love you for buying my project and supporting indie music. The full EP will ONLY be available here on BandCamp, and I tossed in a few bonus goodies, too! Download the whole project here in whatever format you could possibly desire (mp3, wav, FLAC, etc.) Thanx for all the love & stuff. You Rock." - Nikki Lynette
To follow up the success of her mixtape "Roses N' Guns: The totally bad ass mixtape that rocks," Nikki Lynette is releasing her first EP. "The Strong Survive" finds Nikki flexing her production skills over eight tracks of bad-assness and sass & brash (the eighth bonus track and the two interludes are only available when you download the full EP here.) Taking artistic autonomy to the extreme, Nikki chose to helm the project solo. "I produced, wrote, and performed the entire EP myself," she says. "I even did the artwork for the cover. It's gonna rock." The title track and lead single from this EP as well her song "Whatever I Want" were featured on the second season of MTV's hit reality show Jersey Shore, making a total of three songs from this EP that are being featured on shows on MTV right now.
