Video: Quite Nyce - "HMMM" (Filmed in Switzerland)
Quite Nyce is back with his new single HMMM off his upcoming street album entitled CRTFD that will be dropping later this month. Quite Nyce finds himself relating to the everyday 9 to 5 worker just trying to make more money to feed their families. We all can get lost in that comfort of that particular hustle and forget that life is about aspiring to constantly do better. Quite Nyce links up with FLEO a soulful producer from Switzerland , who produced HMMM. As an added bonus he was able to shoot an amazing video in Fribourg, Switzerland with the same production team THE FEPFILMS that filmed his last big single CAUTIOUS. The cinematography in this video is on a major level and competes with the best. You add that with undeniable production and lyrics with a message and that is the recipe for a big big record. Please support this record anyway you can via radio, print, social media outlets, word of mouth, etc. Again we appreciate your support and look forward to your feedback.

The group features Trek Life as the emcee, violinist Jason Yang, producer Speesh Beats, & DJ Buddy. The concept was brought together when DJ Buddy & Speesh Beats felt like the combination of different musical ideas yet hardworking personalities of the groups members would be able to come up with something dope if given the chance to vibe out in the studio. The first song "I'm a King" proves DJ Buddy very correct. With the release of the song and official video on April 25, The Kilahertz have seen over 12,000 views on youtube to date & a large amount of blog press including a spot on Big Boy of Power 106's site.
