Newcomer Squidnice is a raw representation of the New York trap-rap youth that’s currently growing and strengthening its core. Squid, born and raised in Staten Island, has the ability to put his borough on the map and capture attention with his unique look, sound, and following. First known for his baby picture that became the popular “If he’s 5, I’m 5” meme, the spotlight quickly turned to Squid’s melodic hooks and ability to craft catchy hits.
His charismatic social media presence and early online success earned him NYFW 2017 runway looks for notable designers, Hood By Air, and Rochambeau , with discovery by Pigeons & Planes – who invited him to their Pigeons & Planes “Airpnp” house for SXSW 2017.
After seeing success on SoundCloud & Spotify with “Trap By My Lonely” reaching nearly 2 million plays on SoundCloud and “Everywhere I Go”, Squid dropped “Nina”, premiered by Pigeons & Planes and produced by Adrian Lau. His debut project The Craccen released this past August which includes newer hits such as “In Tune”, “Craccen”, and “Traphouse” to name a few.
