“Artist Interview: Nizzie Rapping since nine-years-old, Chavon Vanias became a product of his environment. “My dad worked for Motown and Def jam records. Rapping was something I was around all the time.” After listening to Video Star and I’m the One, the soft spoken voice that came through the phone was unexpected. Better known as Nizzie, or Young N.Y.N.E., “I have a label with Matchbox Entertainment, an independent company. I work for them as director of A&R. I listen for unsigned artists with a lot of talent. We have a lot of affiliates trying to find new acts right now.” Young N.Y.N.E. stands for “New York Never Ends.” Although born in Columbia, South Carolina, Nizzie spent his childhood in Brooklyn and the Bronx. “Nine is also the month of my birthday, September, so there is other significance to that.” Nizzie said, “Sometimes when I would say Young N.Y.N.E. people would think I was talking about a gun which is why I changed it to Nizzie"”
