Career Highlights: NCK Records & Lil Opioid’s Rise In The Industry

Article by: Justyn W. Brodsky

We’ve had Hip Hop artist Lil Opioid on the platform once before. Our review of his EP Cosmic got an astounding reaction, and since then, we’ve been delving a little deeper into the young star on the rise.

With over 500,000 followers on Instagram and an insatiable internet presence since his inception into the market, Lil Opioid, on top of embracing his role as one of the fastest rising up-and-comers in the game, garnered enough industry knowledge and a fan base that allowed him to open the doors with his artist development platform NCK Records; an indie label designated to help aspiring and upcoming artists distribute their music and gain exposure to create an active & engaged audience.

Kinda like us at Artist Reach, NCK Records is a “for musicians, by musicians” network that provides industry opportunities for artists of many calibers and mostly focused on the Hip Hop genre. No matter how new or experienced an artist may be. The humble label provides many avenues of improving your artist career ranging from social media marketing, distribution, authentic promotion, and lots more. The label does sign artists and has an application and preliminary process, which requires submission of your music, a rundown of your industry experience, and crucial questions to determine if the label is a proper home base for you. The collective, solely owned/operated by Lil Opioid and a co-CEO, has proven that their mission for the label is in a promising direction for up and coming artists, as well as themselves as entrepreneurs.

Lil Opioid is strictly self-made, self-promoted and a true example of authenticity. And NCK Records is a direct reflection of that; his hands-on experience with the industry that truly encompasses the legwork a lot of artists don’t have the ability or patience to attempt or maintain in this era of the DIY format, and recognizing the strategies, how-to, and most of all, the payoff when hard work takes place.

If you’re an artist that genuinely resonates with this article and Lil Opioid‘s label, you can submit an application to become signed to his roster by going to his official website below. Lil Opioid is coming-up to the big times right now, and would be a good time to connect with him and his label as he continues to hit the ground running.
