Super-producer Sykoe/ GGAWDY/ Mac Nifty has crunched his imprint on the music scene since 1992.

His production has helped create career defining style and swagger for artists under ground trying to come up.

BORN AND RAISED IN HAMTRAMCK / DETROIT / FERNDALE / MICHIGAN. I LIVED ALL OVER THE CITY FROM THE EAST TO THE WEST AND SOAKED UP GAME EVERYWHERE I LIVED. THATS WHAT MOLDED ME INTO ONE OF THE MOST WELL ROUNDED MC'S IN THE CITY IN THE COUNTRY AND YUP YUP IN THE WHOLE ATMOSPHERE. I EAT SLEEP AND DO DO MUSIC. IM LIKE A WALKING JUKE BOX FROM THE BEGINNING OF MUSIC TO PRESENT DAY IF IT WAS A HIT I PROBABLY KNOW IT AND YOU CAN HEAR IT IN MY OWN MUSIC. I SPECIALIZE IN WORD PLAY BUT ALSO COMPOSING SONGS AND STORY TELLING.

On the brutal raw no law having streets of Detroit, anything and everything luxury worth having comes hard and hard to keep. There is nothing free here. You have to put in plenty of time and learn the game, your game and create that hustle to push lock on your name and brand. And when you do, and you have competition comprimising skills, that is the intersection to which reflects 8 mile and Woodward. The pillar power point. The north star of Detroit City. This is where Nifty has put it down since birth. When you look at the road signs Woodward is number 1. 8 Mile is 102. This is the intersection between the north and the south law and no law, east and the west where people take sides and brawl. Grit and Grace with dead bodies all over the place. A place that many keep saying needs to be embraced, "Beleive in Detroit",  but kind of hard to imagine when nothing but battle ruins and debris is in your face.
But the truth is everyone needs to get out if you have anything you worked hard for and want to keep. Unless you can afford mad security odds are you'll be dead before hearing me. Detroit where your street practice mastered meets opportunity, which is way more than luck because it is guaranteed when you take it: It’s $ykoe (psycho.)

Mac Nifty aka $ykoe (real name Chris Mac), the wild Motor City-made rap artist whose debut single “Wicked Dreamz” became a Detroit trailer sensation and whose new jam “Back in their Face with Bass” is gathering serious steam, has parlayed his punctual nonstop track dropping work ethic, determination and natural nano talent into the bright light of the public.

Nifty is a hip-hop performer from Detroit, who’s working with new monster material. He couldn’t be doing anything else if he tried.

Influencing acts or known acts behind the scenes giving the ideas of excellence and motivation.

Respected beyond the genres of hip hop and urban music, Mac Nifty, has also been sought by superstars and underground legends whose music needs a new edge. Nifty is Detroit's Monster.


Mac Nifty has had many reincarnations-- to making mix tapes for school dances with DJ Magic Mike and NWA in 1988-1991 with the name Bass Tracers & Big Bass C then after family situations out of hand drawing a needed closure and upper Nifty started doing House - Ghetto Tech - Techno music with the name Chriz Mac releasing under ground dance mixes "Blunt Opinion" and "Open Door Mindz I Enter" then to going to prison and getting out going wicked in 1998 as Detroit Sykoe with the group Tempts Eve Posse. Tempts Eve Posse then breaking up jumping ship. Thus starting the music and entertainment label MINDSTATE RECORDS. Under MindState he released Multiple Smoke in 1997, Zillionz in 1998, Detroit 2000 in 1999 and then into a new light in sound as producer and rap rennaissance straying away from the name Sykoe to Mac Nifty in 2000. Something more flexible and simple. Troubles with the law, love, family and money issues because of the law, Nifty's edges were getting jagged, rigid and dangerous. You can hear it in his releases Natural Reactionz in 2000 and Comin' With the Quickness in 2001. 2002 Nifty released Stab Woundz and in 2003 his best album release yet due to the extreme sound and innovation.

 

Harmonization in rap lyrics were forced by Nifty to sound different than everyone else with hits like "Million Dollars" off his SkillzMental double album in 2003.  In 2004 Mac Nifty started a new side of himself and alias, G Gawdy.

G for growth in Detroit's Hip Hop.

Gawdy because everything Nifty touches grows and becomes something over the top with eccentric qualities gaudy outrageous.

GAWDY.

With the Gawdy sound and vocals on Motor City Ridin' Out released in 2004 to Tier 1 Status in 2005, bass album Fort Knocks in 2006, Devious in 2007, Champ Mode in 2008, Club 8 Mile in 2009 and going back Mac Nifty with Further Underground released in 2010.

$YKOE

Now it is 2013. With already the year started with new resolutions like 3 new banging releases to start the year right.

After Tonight, Thick and Keep it Live. Not including the newest 2 Club 8 Mile Beats releases which Sykoe produces as well.
