Fab 5 Ent has been a household name in Pittsburgh for the past few years now. Now I don’t know all of the guys from the crew, but I did get to chop it up with Zekiel Nicholson recently. Zeke is a humble, soft spoken individual with an apparent knack for business, promotions and success. Having been affiliated with the early shaping of Pittsburgh’s most stalwart figure, Mac Miller, Zeke tasted the fruit of success for self by managing Scolla (f/k/a Young Scolla) into one of the most well known up and coming names in hip hop today. He’s also responsible for another Pittsburgh rapper creating national buzz: Devin Miles.
Check the interview below as Zeke and I talk about S.Money vs. Wiz, The MTV and Pittsburgh fiasco, directing negative energy directed at his artists and a few other tips for up and coming rappers in this city.
