Aspiring Hip-Hop freshman Nic Paper is thrilled to present his much-buzzed music video and debut project "Cash It Or Plastic", via Atlanta-based production company Chartcontrol.

"Cash It Or Plastic" is the stunning title track from the East St. Louis youngster’s street album of the same name, hosted by turntable heavyweight DJ Teknikz, which is now available at and />
The critically acclaimed debut effort is a musically-rich work that showcases Nic Paper’s originalist style while breaking new sonic ground with his “pretty boy thug” appeal, rebellious nature, and special magnetic charm.

Nic Paper, born Nic Garner, is the fist artist signed to Isaac "Ike Dirty" Hayes III’s (son of iconic R&B legend Isaac Hayes) Atlanta-based production company Chartcontrol. With such a strong backing, the aspiring rhymespitter is positioned for success with a powerful team that navigates his career in the music industry. Chartcontrol is responsible for producing hits for today’s stars in urban music, including, "Money In The Bank" for rapper Lil Scrappy featuring Young Buck.

As a native of East Saint Louis, one of the most crime-stricken areas in the Midwest, Nic Paper faced a life threatening situation at age 17, when he was sliced in the head with a fixed blade pocket knife, while attending a local party at a hotel. The brawl almost resulted in his death, but instead left him with 32 stitches. This wake-up call inspired Nic to change his life’s direction, and at 18, he became more serious about a career as a recording artist.

"Nic is the perfect storm," his mentor Ike Dirty elaborates. "He has all of the elements of what a superstar is; the look, the lyrical ability, and  the marketability."

Often compared to the likes of T.I., because of his charismatic persona, Nic Paper exemplifies the “It” factor needed to inspire the male fans to want to be like him, and the charm to entice the female fans to want to be with him.

Nic Paper sites T.I., Jay-Z, Gucci Mane and Nas as inspirations for their real and uncut deliveries, and is adamant that future fans will be inspired by him.

"When the world thinks of me, I want them to think of genuine music, and get a feel for who I really am," Nic says. "My hood has never been represented properly."

The perfect look, the perfect sound, the perfect team, equals a lethal combination creating the perfect storm for Nic Paper to become the East Saint Louis hometown hero.
