NickyWill (Nick Hargarther) is a suburban white rapper from Rochester, New York, currently based
in Atlanta, Georgia. As a teenager, he began artfully crafting a unique style of lyrical flow to
accommodate his in-your-face delivery, drawing inspiration predominantly from the likes of mainstream
performers such as Eminem, Asher Roth and Ludacris. NickyWill’s first album, self titled, was released
independently, having been written and produced completely by NickyWill himself. The project was
well received by local critics, prompting NickyWill to immediately begin work on the 2010 release of his
second full length album, “On A Mission”. Utilizing the exposure opportunities of social networks such
as Facebook and Twitter, the album’s breakout single, holding the same name, gained recognition from
top promoters in Upstate New York, offering NickyWill various opportunities to perform alongside top
touring industry acts such as The Cataracs, Maino, Donnie Klang, MC Lars and Hoodie Allen.
After taking some time in 2011 to perform and promote himself as an artist within the underground rap
scene, NickyWill began constructing his most recent project, the “Write Around The Block” mixtape.
Wanting to make a true impact on the hip-hop community, NickyWill wrote and produced the album to
take influence from the roots of jazz, folk rock and blues, blending it with the contemporary sounds of
today’s rap. With the mixtape’s digital release in summer of 2012, NickyWill was praised equally for his
matured sound and the creativity of the instrumentals by a variety of critics in producers, DJs, artists and
most importantly, his fans.
Having successfully generated an underground buzz for his work, NickyWill has since begun to gauge the
interest of recognized talent management companies, agents and producers. Taking advantage of the
opportunity in fall of 2012, NickyWill moved to a larger market in Atlanta, Georgia, working closely with
top artist developers, helping to ensure his upcoming breakout into the national spotlight.
