Welcome to another edition of PoPolitickin. In this episode, we politick with Seattle-based hip-hop artist, performer, and producer Nick Weaver.
Nick started in his early teen years, making mixtapes in the northwest while being raised on everything from Tchaikovsky to The Cure. As he grows and evolves as an artist, his interest in all types of music continues to guide his vision. When asked about his influences, Weaver cites long time favorite acts such as LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Helios, and Mogwai, as well as hip-hop legends like Nas, Royce Da 5’9″, Mobb Deep, and Eminem. Seeing the word “genre” as just a self-imposed boundary, Weaver treats each project as a way to further evolve his own art, one inspiration at a time.
