Long Beach, CA (PressExposure) May 16, 2014 -- The rapper, songwriter and music producer known as 2FiC has released his latest single, "Live for the Night." The track has been published on the Diamond Music Entertainment LLC music label. Part hip-hop, part house music and all fun, "Live for the Night" stands as proof that 2FiC has plenty of talent to bring listeners around the world.
2FiC cites as main artistic influences Jay Z, Ryan Leslie, Pharrell Williams, Neato C, J. Cole, Drake, Snoop Lion, Bob Marley, and others. "The list goes on and on," writes the rapper, whose music talents match and even exceed his remarkable passion for the art. "I grew up around musicians and creating music sparked my interest. I think making music is amazing and I love it."
2FiC is the professional stage name of Toufic Nicholas, originally hailing from Freetown, Sierra Leone in West Africa. Sierra Leone is one of Africa's smallest nations, known primarily for their trade in diamonds and for their destructive, ten-year civil war which was largely funded by them. It was this war which lead 2FiC to seek refuge in Ghana in 1997, and to ultimately come to the United States in 2004.
2FiC founded Diamond Music Entertainment LLC in 2012 and released his debut mixtape, "The Diamond Dealer," in 2013 to widespread acclaim. Circulated rumors regarding an EP album in the works suggest that it would contain music from diverse genres, including reggae, pop, R 'n' B, hip hop, and Sierra Leonean hip hop.
"I love and admire the art of composing music from scratch" 2FiC writes. "My goal is to get exposed globally, as an artist. I feel that I can put Diamond Music Entertainment on the map if I make it, and the whole world will know us, and our stories."
Asked to describe the theme of his new single, "Live for the Night," 2FiC replies, "To stay positive, work hard and believe in yourself. I want people to understand that they can live life to the fullest no matter what the circumstances are. Never give up."
"Live for the Night" by 2FiC is available online worldwide.
