We had the good fortune of connecting with Nilly and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nilly, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I think its imperative. Covid should’ve taught everyone the value in owning your own earning potential. You should be able to physical dictate how much money you bring in, rather than relying on big business

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Most proud of being versatile. Most artists can’t have all 3 things I bring to the table: Melodic Tones, Vivid Storytelling, and top shelf bars. I pride myself on being able to deliver that variety seemlessly. My current success is attributed to my consistency and strong desire to show improve. My next song always has to be better than my last. I’m doing my fans a disservice if they can’t see the progression in my music. Of course, this isn’t easy. Luckily, I thrive when I’m doubted. My mentality is that I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. There isn’t a boundary that I can’t surpass.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well….. moved here in February 2020. Covid 19 popped off in March so my knowledge of places is limited lol From what I see, some great places to eat or JR Crickets. Great places to check out is a the Trap Museum, The College Hall of Fame, the Aquarium, and more. The reason I moved to ATL is to build on the heavy music scene. Recording at a place like Patchwerk is music gold to me!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My shoutout would definitely be my mother (Sherelle Reed) for three reasons 1. She introduced me to music (Church choir director growing up) 2. Her ambition drives me (Public Speaker and CEO of Women’s Empowerment Group “Find Your Resilience” 3. She has always supported me from the jump. (Buying merch, bringing people to my shows, spreading my music to her followers)
