The "Chopped and Screwed" style made famous by Houston's legendary DJ Screw has been on the Hip Hop map for over two decades, and in 2012, The Niceguys are carrying on the influential legacy in their own unique way. As they prepare for the September 11 release of their album James Kelley, the four-man group is setting the pace for Houston's next major come-up.

The original tracks on James Kelly are penned by rapper Easy Yves and producers Free and Todd, then mixed properly by DJ Candlestick. Fresh off their wins at the 2012 Houston Press Awards - a second consecutive "Best Rap Group" award and the "Best Rap DJ" award for DJ Candlestick, The Niceguys are proud of the direction the album takes.
"James Kelley is simply, a really fun album," explains Free. "It's more detailed musically than our previous efforts, and more well-rounded."

The project, their fourth as a group, initially started as an EP, comprised of old and new tracks. However, it took on a life of its own and evolved into one long-playing new project.

"I feel like we have covered a lot of ground as far as the sound of the album," explains Todd (the artist formerly known as Christolph). "It's very timeless in my opinion, and there is musically something for every type of listener." The project covers all angles of Hip Hop, "from screw-influence to backpacker Hip Hop sh*t," as DJ Candlestick says. "People are going to end up seeing that we are not classifiable," continues Yves.

While often times Hip Hop can feel inaccessible to some, The Niceguys craft a sound that everyone can relate to. "We are just regular dudes, we're genuine," says Free. Their "people first" mentality trickles into their music, which represents everyday people, while at the same time reinventing the wheel sonically.

Described as "delicious," "fattening," "swaggy," and "impregnable" by the group, James Kelley will undoubtedly attract new fans while satisfying original ones. Tracks like "Magic" hold a perfect balance of Yves' skillful rhymes hugged by Todd's thorough production, while "Married To the Mob" was years in the making, showcasing Candlestick on the beat.

"Ain't Life Grand" was Yves' dedication to Todd, detailing how to overcome life's obstacles. The tracks' themes run the gamut of topics from poignant to smart, and of course, how to have a good time.

Ultimately, The Niceguys are confident about what will happen when music lovers hear the James Kelley project. "I think the album will open up people eyes to our talent," asserts Candlestick. "I also think the people will be pleased with the diversity, and we're very excited about the reactions we'll get."

"It will be a breath of fresh air the day it releases," Free agrees. "All that hard work and all that time... two years just about, and were finally back! It's an exciting album, it's well rounded, fast, musical, and very lyrical. We have a winner!"
