"Often times we say we love this and that but, how much do we really love ourselves? My gift to you is one of my hardest reflections yet, my affair with Nicotine. After 16 years, I’ve finally decided to break it off with this vicious vice and I hope many of you can too." -AKIR

MP3: The Niceguys - "Somebody" Feat. Lee Lonn Walker
The Niceguys Explore Love With Latest Single From The Show, Prep New Video
Critical Praise for The Niceguys:
"Meet The Niceguys; arguably Houston's best kept hip-hop secret." - Houston Chronicle
"The Niceguys make it evident from the title-track opener of their full-length offering, The Show, that this is not going to be an exercise in frivolous nursery rhymes. There is something very genuine about The Niceguys, whose core aim is to entertain and have fun with energetic hip-hop." - URB
Rapper Yves Saint, producers Christolph and Free, and DJ Candlestick, the Houston-based foursome known as The Niceguys, are excited to drop "Somebody," the Lee Lonn Walker featuring love-themed new single from their debut album, The Show – and just in time for Valentine's Day. Following the triumphant and celebratory sounds of "Toast," released with an accompanying video in early January, "Somebody" mellows things out, with a sound reminiscent of the mellow tones of old school soul, complete with understated percussion and reverb heavy instrumentation.
"Love is not a choice. So when you do love, love well," says Yves, the Queens-born emcee who has spent the last number of years in Houston after meeting the rest of The Niceguys while in school together at the University of Houston. "I wrote the whole song, but the most poignant parts were the bars that I wrote for Lee Lonn to sing: 'We won't live if we don't try/ And love is life, so we won't die.'"
Fans can also look forward to a video for "Somebody," to be released later this month.
