Andre Nickatina Background:

Born and raised in the Fillmore District of San Francisco, Andre Nickatina (formerly known as Dre Dog) has been a rap luminary since the release of his critically acclaimed debut, The New Jim Jones. Nickatina’s classic stage show combined with his rare interviews, maintains his mystery and unique musicianship that has spanned two decades. The longevity of Nickatina speaks for itself. An award-winning MC and producer (2005 Bay Area Artist of The Year / Album of The Year for Bullets), Nickatina’s vision has expanded beyond the 18 albums (and hundreds of thousands of sales) that he has executive-produced. His third album, Raven In My Eyes, marked Nickatina’s shift as an artist and expanded his audience to the wildly enthusiastic college crowds that praise him with regular sellouts from coast to coast. In 2008 Nickatina completed a timeless masterwork that paired he and his friend, Mac Dre (R.I.P.) together with the new classic, A Tale of Two Andres. Without saying so, Nickatina has had his finger on the pulse of what is raw, uncut and capable of capturing the mind and ears of listeners. Andre Nickatina is a rare breed of artist…one of the last original trend setters. Nickatina does not do what the people want… rather the people want to know what Dre will do next.
