Montreal hip hop artist NYCE whom is set to release his upcoming debut album "Certified" later this year on local hip hop label Hustle Cartel Ent is proud to announce he will be opening for American rapping icon Raekwon (Wu Tang Clan) in Montreal on Saturday, March 3rd at Underworld (251 Ste-Catherine East).

"I'm truly honoured to be hitting the stage with Raekwon, he's had a great influence on myself and my hip hop." commented NYCE.

Taking his street knowledge and turning it into music to help elevate his life and that of others for years. The charismatic and well-tatted young emcee is out to start a dialogue, to sometimes shock and to always make you laugh with his quick wit and sharp tongue. NYCE dropped his first mix tape, D’Boy Music, in July 2011 and with his upcoming debut produced by one of Canada’s hottest up and coming producers, Fullklip Beats, NYCE is set to define his D’Boy street hustle.

NYCE recently released his latest single "Best Price", that has already sold 2,200 downloads on iTunes along with a music video to support the single.
