NyteXing Tells Us How “Pardon Me” Came Together with Mickey Factz

NyteXing released his ‘Pardon Me’ video with Mickey Factz. Today NyteXing tells us how this came to be.

Brooklyn-bred, PA-based emcee NyteXing presents “Pardon Me”, his new single featuring Bronx rapper Mickey Factz. Produced by Belgian beatsmith Natsu Fuji, the new single brings the two rappers together under their shared passon for video games and anime. Nytexing’s discography includes Welcome To Bludhaven and Libra Complex.

Regarding his new single NyteXing says “Mickey Factz and I both having interest in comic books and video games, we both wanted to make a song that anybody can rock to as well as appreciate the high-caliber bars while referencing the things we grew up loving.”

How did you get your stage name?

My original stage name was Maverick Da Roninn when I first started but after a bit of time I felt there was a need for a change and around some rap circles people knew me as the artist that loved Nightwing from the Batman series, so with a bit of thought and advice from friends and colleagues I decided to name myself NyteXing (pronounced Nightwing).

Now honestly I feel I’m close to another change due to everything going on as well as paying attention to the climate.

What made you decide to become a rapper?

Back when I was a kid In Brooklyn my older brother had a rap group known as H.U.M.P. Squad and me watching them work on songs and even freestyle on TV back then sparked the fire in me to spit. But back then the content I wanted to rap about wasn’t cool to most so no one was around to teach a 10 year old how to properly make songs.

So at 23 in Pennsylvania one fateful day, my cousin Mugga who was a member of H.U.M.P. Squad, asked me to come thru to play Injustice and after me winning a few matches he asked me what I wanted to do and I said “I wanna make a track”. And from there I got the itch to keep going.

What’s the first rap song you ever heard? Describe the moment.

Now my parents always tell me I loved “Insane In The Membrane” by Cypress Hill when I was four. But honestly the first hip-hop I remember actually hearing was “Flavor In Ya Ear (remix)” by Craig Mack featuring Biggie Smalls, LL Cool J, Rampage and Busta Rhymes.

I was always excited to hear that track, especially Biggie’s part. All the verses were so diverse and dope.

How did “Pardon Me” come together? How did you get up with Mickey Factz?

Well “Pardon Me” is actually my third collab with Mickey Factz. The first track we did was called “October” which Is on my project Libra Complex. The second was “Greatest” which is on my project Gamers Interlude 2. Both are available on my Bandcamp and all my streaming sites. Him and I saw each other at different shows and always talked Street Fighter and other stuff we enjoy.

As for “Pardon Me” Mickey hit me up on Twitter this time around and asked If I wanted to do the song and of course I said yeah, so after I wrote my verse and made the original hook I sent everything back while telling him that I knew Natsu Fuji, the man who made a beat. After Mickey heard the original draft he remade the hook and boom, we had a song.

What are your predictions for 2020 In hiphop?

I feel there’s gonna be culture-changing music coming out not only from the legends but from new people who have been bubbling from the underground,. Because of how the Internet works, people have more accessibility to hear new music, which means all the music will get an almost equal chance to be heard.
