Neisha Cooper is her name but when she steps on any stage she becomes “Nikki Natural.”
The nickname Nikki and Natural was given to her by those closest to Nikki because she is always regarded as having an innate gift or talent for a particular task or activity. It all just comes to her “Naturally”. As a Florida native Nikki Natural was born in Miami-Dade County but raised in Broward County Florida.
Many don’t realize that music has been in Nikki family blood Line. Nikki’s father Stephan Rae was the lead singer in a group called DG (Distinguished Gentleman.) Her sister Princess Asia was the only girl in a 4 member band group called Bottom of the Map and they were signed to Universal Records. Even the father of her son who goes by the name of C-Ride, a known rapper from Miami was singed under legendary music producers Cool and Dre's label, Epidemic Records and he was also represented by Polo Grounds Label. Her lil’ bro Papisteez is also a Dope upcoming R&B and Hip Hop artist, they write a lot of songs together! Even the father of her youngest son is the cousin of the late Great Nipsey Hussle and he is also the CEO of Alliance Music Group. As you can see, music is definitely where she was destined to be!
Nikki gravitated to music all of her life, so now you know where the passion for music came from but it took a while for her to really make it her career. A few years ago Nikki was in the studio with her sister when her manager told her to write a girl version rap to Usher, Ludacris, and Lil Jon song “Lovers and Friends.” It came out super dope so and she started falling in love with making her own music. Nikki was just too shy when It came down to performing with her sister so she decided to leave the music alone and chase the medical field.
As a mother of three and a degree holder, Nikki has overcome many obstacles. Especially being able to escape a home invasion with her children a few years ago. All of this has led her to where she is today. She decided to finally listen to her heart and got back into the studio. A few of her musical influences are Nicki Minaj, Lil Kim, and Foxy brown. They make music that men and women can rock and that's exactly what she is here to do. So a year later and she has recorded a few songs that can be found on her Soundcloud along with a few collaborations.
