KM: How did Nice Entertainment come about? What artists do you work with?

In the next few months to follow, I met artists Bobbynice & Smaccnice. We immediately hit it off, which made the creative process such a success.

CC: This gives any artist under my management a huge advantage. Free studio time is available to them, at their convenience.
