Interview With Hip-Hop’s Most Promising R&B Artist, Nakkia Gold

Saban Music Group’s R&B artist Nakkia Gold is dubbed as Hip-Hop’s most promising R&B artist. She is best known for her buzzing hit song “Justice (Get Up, Stand Up)” ft. Wiz Khalifa, Bob Marley, and The Wailers, which generated 3.9M views on YouTube. The LGBTQ artist is backed by Bob Marley’ daughter Cedella Marley and mega music executive Haim Saban. From homelessness to getting discovered, Nakkia Gold remains true to her South LA community and is on the mission to making an impact through music.

Please tell us about your latest projects that are the most meaningful to you and the impact that it has made on your supporters?

My latest projects include “Justice (Get Up, Stand Up)” ft. Wiz Khalifa, Bob Marley and The Wailers, “Pretty Girl Habit,” “Trap Santa” ft. DDG to name a few. Some of my latest projects have been my best work. I’m still in the early development stages as a new artist but I think with my new album “Like Girls” it will give my supporters a deeper look into my personal life.

How did your partnership with National Black Child Development Institute come about and what was the experience like for you?

By being busy and not having a lot of time to do the things I’m passionate about, I felt it was important to connect with the organizations who are doing the things that I’m interested in doing for my community. Through my song “Justice (Get Up, Stand Up),” it was a call-to-action that became a staple song for most grassroots organizations during the pandemic and the civil unrest.

It makes me feel good as an artist to use my platform to empower people and do something for a universal cause.
