Niko Brim – Hard to Believe

“Power Hour”, His week-long conversation series exploring the meaning of freedom, starts June 19th at 6:19 pm EST.

New York, NY June 13, 2020 — Niko Brim, hip-hop artist, producer, and social impact leader, lifts the veil of centuries of oppression with a powerful new visual for his single, “Hard to Believe.” It’s part of his mission to implore black and brown youth to reclaim their narratives and make Juneteenth a federally recognized holiday.

Sign Now: Help make Juneteenth a national holiday!

Niko Brim, 23, and beloved 93-year-old Texan, Opal Lee, the nation’s foremost Juneteenth awareness leader, became the duo that 2020 needed by joining forces to petition for Juneteenth to become a federally observed holiday.

Lee, known for her symbolic 2 ½ mile walks across the country in 2016 and 2019 honoring the 2 ½ years that slaves in Texas didn’t receive the news of their emancipation, is mentoring Brim.

Opal Lee will read the book she authored, “Juneteenth A Children’s Story,” exclusively on Brim’s Instagram account during the first of seven “Power Hour” show nights, June 19th.

Brim, the host, will chat with influential guests who convey ‘Black Power’ nightly at 6:19 pm ET from June 19 to June 26, 2020.

Show topics include current events and the “Twelve Freedoms” gained by emancipated slaves on June 19, 1865, when Union General Gordon Granger led federal US Colored Troops to Galveston, Texas, where he issued General Order No. 3 declaring that the Civil War had ended and all slaves were free.

Fueling Niko Brim’s ascension is a combination of his artistry, sophisticated spitting, uplifting mantras, and fury for civil unity. Bred to use his dais consciously, Niko is the son of two certified life coach parents and influential music industry veterans, fashion icon Misa Hylton and V Records CEO JoJo Brim.

He was one of the leaders of the June 12th ‘Silence is Violence’ rally, the first of its kind to canvas Mount Vernon and New Rochelle streets, in honor of young fallen neighbor, Kamal Flowers, and countless other lives lost to police brutality.

Niko and his sister, Madison Star Brim, also spoke at Mount Vernon City Hall during its “We Can’t Breathe” rally alongside the city’s government and youth organized by MVPD on Tuesday, June 2, 2020.

Niko Brim has independently amassed over one million streams, with hits, “Throne“, “Feds Watching“, and “Woke“, and his movements with the inspiring hip-hop collective CYN™ (Create Your Now), which Brim co-founded in 2012 with Kai Ca$h. Members include Christian Combs, K. Wales, ShaqNLivin, DJ TizzTheInfluence, and Great Dame. Over the last year, his performance stints on Rapsody’s 2020, A Black Woman Created This tour, “Sway’s Universe,” and on LiveXLive further positioned him as a rising star who’s swinging his mic for what’s right.
