GroovNuke and $NOOP discuss the release of $NOOP's first official project 'Iron Man 400 Stark', the 'Stark Tower', feedback from his first release and so much more. â
If you haven't been in the loop with $noop and his first project 'Iron Man 400 Stark', what are you waiting for?
It's been almost month since the release of his debut project. $noop is still cooking up more heat in the meantime and still makes it his daily mission to continue to push his craft and improve. BBoy produced the full project with the exception of NEW Pesos (prod. Johnny Bangz) , and DC engineered the project.
$noop turned pain, loss, and many long nights into triumph. Thus the Iron Man 400 Stark era began. Sometimes you just got to throw on the armor and get ready for what's in front of you. He took pride in embracing the Tony Stark persona on this one, turned his greatest thoughts into the Stark Tower. What is that exactly? You're about to find out through our Q+A interview.
GroovNuke: So bro, let the people know WHAT EXACTLY is the Stark Tower?
$noop:â The Stark Tower is just my way of thinking, a way of life. You know, in Tony Stark's tower can oversee everything and that's just my view of life. That's when it was born. I AmIron MAN 400 Stark.
Groovnuke: Describe the process of making the intro. 'Stark Tower'. You said a lot on there that will leave people wondering about your life, but you also left room for people to turn back to reflect on theirs.
$NOOP: After I got into the project, I just had the beat and realized it was cold as hell. So I wrote to it a few times and it came together. I got good feedback and they all said I should make it my intro so I went with it.
GroovNuke: Did you plan for a project with no features, or did it just go down like that?
$noop: I had a few features lined up, but we was on two different pages when the time came. But it's all good. â
On the intro to 'Iron Man 400 Stark', $noop brings the people in with his tough story telling and vivid lines.
"You don't live how I live you don't know my position. So many days ain't have a pot to piss, nothing to sh*t in. Now every time I hit the stu I treat it like a way in. I swear I never want to leave, DC can I stay in?"
The process of making this project was no easy one for $noop, and he expressed it throughout the project. When you have low moments and you create something special such as a project, the grind speaks for itself. All the late nights in the stu, pushing for promotion, and everything is surely due to pay off for $noop. The grind to get known is becoming scarce. A lot of people are afraid to get 10 toes down for where they want to be in life. $noop on the other hand, he gone step.
âGroovnuke: Describe your Coast2Coast LIVE experience?
$noop: It was a good experience. Shoutout to Arizona y'all got some good people out there. It could've been a better show though. A lot of things I didn't like but I made the most of it from the time I was there until the time I left. I should've had show versions of my tracks, but it's cool I can take a 81/100. â
GroovNuke: Who were your biggest rap inspirations coming up? Who are some you model yourself after these days?
$noop: Man, Herb. You know I rock with Herb heavy it been like that since the jump.Boosie, Meek Mill, Bump J, Bankroll Fresh ârip StreetMoneyWorldwide, all my fallen soldiers everybody I do this for.
GroovNuke: How old were you exactly when you started rapping?
$noop: I started out jotting down rhymes in the fifth grade. Came a long way from that. Seventh and Eighth grade I got back into it but in high school is when I really jumped in the booth. I wish I took it seriously back then because I could've been reached this point of progress.
GroovNuke: If you had to play one of your songs in front of people who've never listened to you to put them on, what would it be?
$noop: 'Fortnite'. That's the song everybody rocking with for the most part. It's a real attention grabber because Fortnite is a real trendy game right now. â
"One day my name gone fill arenas, doing encores"
GroovNuke: Recently, Shakey came through with the IG co-sign for one of your singles'Fortnite', tell me how that happened.
$NOOP: I really been reaching out to him trying to work but I hit him up about the project and he found 'Fortnite' on YouTube and rocked with it. I been f*cking with Shakey one of the funniest in the city and he from the land so he got to feel it. Shoutout Shakey one time.
GroovNuke: Hold on bro I got to ask this, why don't you play Fortnite? Lol
$noop: Lol it just ain't my speed bro, the concept valid but all that extra just ain't for me.
"Woke up to some money, I don't play Fortnite" â
Groovnuke: I see you have physical copies going out, what are your plans with them? I feel like that's a big deal and still a good way to get the word out you know..
$noop: You knew we grew up off music, so I'm just trying to stick with what I know. Got to get it out by any means. Plus, I put them together myself. The first physical album I ever bought was last year. Meek Mill 'Wins & Losses' got me through a lot. So just by hearing that I'm like "Yeah, I got to do this. Make it happen ya know."
If you want a physical copy of 'Iron Man 400 Stark', hit up the boy $noop! Support. â
GroovNuke: What's some future plans you got for the game? Like what kind of people can you see yourself working with?
$NOOP: I just hope to one day work with all the independent artists for we can find more ways to make money for ourselves rather than the low-balling labels. No matter if you're big and independent, or local. We can all get to it. Aw yeah, I'm working on a project with with my homie âFoekiss, I got something coming with âLito and Yung Ice too. It's been due.
GroovNuke: I see your IG is doing good numbers but you really don't use your Twitter like that. Why not?
$noop: Twitter really ain't my speed it's too internet you know. I may get around to it eventually lol but follow me on Instagram @400Snoop. I'm just trying to market my music I'm good on everything else but Twitter will be my last resort. â
"This here reality, can't run from all your problems n*ggaâ, eviction notes made my heart a lil' harder n*gga."
âGroovnuke: What track you feel told the real you on this one? Like the one that hit you the most..
$noop: To be honest, all of them. 'Stark Tower' was the setting message of the tape.'Eviction Notes' was a current situation I was facing, made me shed a few while I was making the track. 'Numbers' was about my past relationship that went left you know how it go, 'Fortnite' I knew was gone be the hit because everybody f*cking with the game.'Greatness',â sh*t we should all strive for it.
â'Factz' I was just on there giving out game, hear me out. 'Like That' it be like that, so you know I felt that. 'Brand New Gadgets' was just bars and it was inspired by the real Tony Stark you know. 'NEW Pesos' I was just having fun, Johnny Bangz produced that one. 'Support' I got the vibe from Herb sh*t. It came out of support for Herb and we was dropping our sh*t around the same time. 'Trap Spot' just one of my favorites on here, if I had a top 5 on my project, it'll definitely be on there. â
Groovnuke: What producers do you want to work with in the future?
$noop: DJ L, KidWonder, Zaytoven, Southside, whoever do MoneyMan beats lol shoutout Moneyman one time. Plus, I need a beat from âSosa.
âGroovnuke: If you had to give another up and coming artist advice, what would it be?
$noop: Just stay focused. If you're really about making it with this music you got to go and get it in every aspect. Get your money right, find a way to reach multiple platforms. Know how to market your music and get it registered. I'm still up and coming myself though, so I'm still learning new things too.
Groovnuke: What's next for your promo?
$noop: Keep showing consistency, it's a big thing got to stay on top of it. I'm working on getting some more visuals out. My project is still fairly new even though I'm working on other sh*t I'm going to continue to keep pushing the movement.
GroovNuke: Fasho but last question before we wrap it up, where do you see yourself with five more years of rap under your belt?
$noop: I should be a heavy in the game, doing things I always wanted to make happen. I shouldn't be in this same postion. I highly doubt I will be. â

Nikki Hayes is back with a soothing new joint that's guaranteed to move you.
It's been 2 years since Nikki Hayes released her unforgettable record known as "Chance of Rain," in which she showcased her passionate angelic vocals, that easily placed her at the top of my list of upcoming R&B singers you should know.
After a slight hiatus and new location, 22 year old singer songwriter Nikki Hayes is back with yet another heartfelt record produced by Chris Curran, titled "Move." See what Nikki had to say about her upcoming release, as well as check out our exclusive Q&A below.
" Move is about being so attracted and drawn to someone that it makes you feel differently. Your qualities and set ways are challenged and it’s unknown what to make of it or how to react."
Bekoe: First I’d like to know what’s most important to you as an artist?
Nikki: What's most important to me as an artist is to always stay true to myself as an artist and person, to find balance between challenges and doing something out of my comfort zone with keeping the true essence of myself in everything that I do.
Bekoe: Share something about yourself that you feel people should know.
Nikki: Musically, everything I write about are from experience and things that I've felt at certain points in life. In each song, listeners are peeling back the layers of me and what I don't exactly show on a surface level.
Bekoe: What is something that every girl should tell herself when she wakes up in the morning?
Nikki: That they're beautiful and worthy of the greatness of life. How in life, everything is everything and most things are out of your control but the control is in yourself in the midst of that. With that mindset, you're capable of taking on and ruling every day.
Bekoe: You recently Relocated to Arizona. How has the transition for you been musically?
Nikki: Lately there's been a lot more to write about. The new energy has been very healing and very good for me as a person, thus an artist. The only thing is I wish I had more privacy to sing and write since I'm in a one-bedroom.
Bekoe: I’ve been a strong supporter of your music, but I have to ask why the 2 year gap in between singles?
Nikki: Constantly trying to grow has been the main reason, writing a lot more and finding the right production to go into the songs. I want to make sure everything I do is better than the last thing I did and that can take some time, self-searching and then putting it all to fruition.
Bekoe: Explain the writing process of “Move” as well as what you were going through when you wrote it.
Nikki: At the time, I was developing feelings for someone, more of a curiosity and heavy interest and I didn't know how to communicate that and was pretty terrible with it. I'm open and quite social, but very light and surface level for the most part and like most people, putting myself out there or being at a level of vulnerability with feelings, through natural, gives me anxiety and is quite scary for me. I struggle with communicating my feelings sometimes but especially at that time, partially because I was afraid to feel but also it can be hard communicating feelings when I'm trying to grasp and sort them out myself.
Bekoe: Is there a project in the works, if so when can we expect it’s release.
Nikki: Yes. TBD. ;)
Bekoe: I figured you'd say that lol. If you could create a collab album with any person in the industry, who would it be? Who would be the producer?
Nikki: I'm still trying to do that Chance collab haha. But I'd love to write with a lot of artists, Sia, NAO, Daniel Caesar, Brent Faiyaz. A producer I'm really loving right now and have been for a while is Grades.
Bekoe: Lastly when you’re back in Chicago, what would be the first restaurant you’ll visit
Nikki: Either Chicago Diner or Mandy's Soul Food.
