Naiqui began his journey first producing for friends in high school and has spent the years since chipping away at the craft from D.C. to California, finally planting himself back in his hometown of New York in 2018. Since then, he has cultivated what has become his own edgy, hip, funky brand of music. From this tenacity, Naiqui was awarded a guest appearance on NBC's TV show "Timeless" as blues legend Robert Johnson. In addition he was also awarded the opportunity to participate in Afro Punks Battle of The Bands. Garnering comparisons to Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar for his stage presence and high energy, through his own musical style, Naiqui brims with the spunk of an eclectic and zestful artist. In a genre-bending mix of groovy hooks, funk and trap inspired backbeats melded with soul, Naiqui is sure to bring on a highly energetic and crowd inspired performance.
