Black History Month, founded by Carter G Woodson in 1926, is a time for everyone to celebrate the contributions that Black people have made to the past, present, and future of society. America is a cultural melting pot, and for most of us, having friends of other ethnicities is a natural part of life. For the... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/becoming-nikki-lynette/2015/02/10-things-my-white-friends-arent-allowed-to-lie-about/" class="more-li...

As a girl who is proud of her tatts and piercings, I can say with certainty that this article is something everyone with body art will be able to appreciate. #tattoos #peircings #bodyart #awarenessmatters
There is a serious issue going on in the world today that needs to be addressed. Millions of people suffer in silence everyday, left behind by a world too preoccupied with the trappings of technology and popular culture to care about those who require help. In order to highlight the growing need for concern and... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/becoming-nikki-lynette/2014/10/tattooed-women/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

When the details of Trayvon Martin ’s death became public, everyone from fed-up moms to A-list celebs expressed outrage over the senseless death of a black kid at the hands of a wannabe cop. It seemed like the whole world knew about Trayvon.

This started when I corrected a dude for thinking that "black culture" and "hip hop culture" are the same thing. The entire interaction can be summarized in two words... He crazy.
Some creepy dude who works for the State of Illinois or something threatened to submit screengrabs of our less than friendly interactions online today so that he can get me in trouble with ChicagoNow, as if they don’t already know how incorrigible I am. So I thought I’d save him the trouble and post the... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/becoming-nikki-lynette/2014/08/this-dude-wants-to-snitch-on-me-so-im-saving-him-the-trouble/" class="more-l...

I spilt a lil bit of tea but my point was made. LoLz
Back in the olden days, before the invention of the internet, dating was so much simpler. You met a guy you liked, you talked on the phone after school, you went out on dates on the weekend so that you could get to know each other, it was kinda sweet. Then the internet happened. Now,... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/becoming-nikki-lynette/2014/07/why-i-miss-dating-before-the-internet/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

Since the Ferguson verdict, many of us have asked "Now what?" But few people have called out those who helped make this situation so tragic. Now, I'm saying what needs to be said.

Too many nudes have been leaked. Too many titties and small dicks have been exposed. Now I'm spreading the gospel of how to deliver yourself from sexting evil. Amen.
A few years back, this cute dude I knew asked me to send him a nude. Something told me not to trust his ass.So when I got home I took a screengrab of a porno starring a post-op transsexual showing off his/her brand new functional vag by playing with a cucumber. I sent it to... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/becoming-nikki-lynette/2014/09/the-ten-sexting-commandments/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

I have been informed that I now have 24 hours to get in touch with the guy who's been talking shit to me all day, or he will take legal action against me. Just thought I'd go ahead and share this again, while I still have the freedom to do so. LoLz

I'm on tv. LoL. No seriously... I'm on tv.
You just never know how stuff is gonna turn out. One day I was working on my album Respect My Disrespect, planning out how I was gonna afford to promote it without having to beg a label for help. And the next day I was being asked to star in a national Kmart commercial.

I rock at being bad ass. Any questions?
Introduction
(I hate talking about myself in these lil blurbs so I'm just gonna put my bio here.)

In 2010, Nikki Lynette received her first nationwide recognition after her unique sound, which is equal parts hip hop, rock, and pop, won her the 2nd place spot in Ourstage/New Music Seminar’s “Artist on the Verge Competition.” As a result, MTV offered her a music licensing deal, landing her music on several of the networks top rated reality shows. Her subsequent release, “Roses N’ Guns: The Totally Bad Ass Mixtape That Rocks,” quickly racked up thousands of downloads online. Soon Nikki Lynette’s fans formed a movement around her music and dubbed themselves Team Bad Ass. “We call ourselves Team Bad Ass because we’re not like everybody,” Lynette explains. “We do what we want to do. We don’t care what anybody thinks.” It is this same profound sense of individuality that has been the cornerstone of Nikki Lynette’s existence, earning her accolades from industry heavyweights from producer Rodney Jerkins and Detroit crooner Dwele to Chicago’s own Lupe Fiasco and Justin Tranter of the rock band Semi Precious Weapons.
 
Following the success of her mixtape, Lynette released a second project, “The Strong Survive EP,” which she wrote and produced herself. Soon after the release, MTV and VH1 opted to license the entire project for use on their networks. To date, Nikki Lynette has placed music in shows on MTV, VH1, Fox, and Showtime. She recently licensed over a dozen of her original songs to Viacom Media Networks, making them available for use on all of the broadcasting networks under the company’s umbrella. Lynette’s most recent release, “Roses N’ Guns 2: The BADDER ASSED mixtape that rocks” has garnered her significant press, including being feature in XXL Magazine in “The Break” column and bookings on the official line up for the A3C Hip Hop Fest in Atlanta and CMJ in New York. Nikki Lynette is currently in the studio working on her first full length album. A release date for the project has not yet been set.
Bragging rights
Ummm...I've had my dreads for almost 15yrs & haven't gotten tired of them yet, I've had a vegan diet for about 15yrs (I got into all this stuff while I was a kid, it drove my mom nuts,) my nephews get really good grades & are awesome athletes, I am a crazy cat lady in training, I sing, rap, produce, draw, sculpt, and do Indian seed bead looming. And my music gets played on tv. Yeah.
