Today Harlem's own Neek Bucks was crowned the future of New York hip-hop by the Voice of New York herself, Angie Martinez! Neek is taking home the grand prize of $25,000 and an exclusive distribution deal from United Masters.
The '212 Come Up' show presented by AT&T went down for the past four Sundays and was hosted by Honey German and DJ Suss One during which they sorted through thousands of submissions for the next New York ICON!
You may remember the rapper as he was one of our guests on The show freestyling over Blueface's "Thotiana" beat. Today the winner he pulled up to The Angie Martinez show where talked about what he is going to do first with the money he said he wants to take his 7-month-old baby girl somewhere nice.
Chopping it up with Angie, Neek told the story of the time he got shot in the head explaining that he didn't even realize he had been shot after things went sideways on a day at the beach. It wasn't until four years laters when he was having sinus issues that he went to the doctor and found out that he had a bullet stuck in his head from that day. Opening up about this moment, he revealed that this is the reason he named his label "Here for a Reason"', because that is also what the doctor said to him when he saw the X-Ray.
