GREG NICE "Get It Get It"

Just saw the legendary rapper Greg Nice's “Get It Get It” video from his debut solo album, The Popcycle, on The Boombox.  The Popcycle, is out now via One Haven Music/Industry Rule 4080, and boasts an old school hip hop feel from Greg (one half of the late 80’s/early 90’s duo Nice & Smooth). If you didn't know Nice & Smooth, you'd probably still dig this new track and video - fresh, entertaining - rhyming John Belushi with sushi - you get the idea, on top of catchy hip-hop beats begging for the dancefloor.  The Popcycle features appearances from Tony Yayo  (G-Unit), Flavor Flav (Public Enemy), production work from Aaron LaCrate (Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, Lily Allen), Chew Fu (Rihanna), The Disco Fries (Flo Rida, Usher), DJ Serafin (Lil Jon) and DJ Mighty Mi (The High & Mighty, Cage).
