Detroit Music Station

If you haven’t been to the Detroit Institute of Arts to see D-Cyphered, the new photo exhibit that showcases the who’s-who of the local hip hop scene by local photographer Jenny Risher, you really must. The show chronicles the history of hip hop in this city and, of course, includes photos of Detroit’s biggest stars Eminem, Big Sean, Kid Rock and George Clinton. But among the 81 photos and 230 artists featured in this show is a portrait of Music Producer and DJ Nick Speed. And as a testament to his contributions to this music scene, Nick was honored to have also been chosen to create the music for this exhibit – music that becomes a very integral part of the show’s experience.

If you don’t know the name, there is a good chance you’ve heard Nick Speed’s music. He has a platinum record to his credit for music made with hip hop artist 50 Cent and has worked on other Grammy-nominated songs. He has worked with such hip hop notables as Lloyd Banks, M.O.P., Bishop Lamont and Mopreme Shakur and he had a major production and management deal with G-Unit Records.

An independent artist now, Nick Speed is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. He just opened a new studio high atop the historic Penobscot Building where he will continue to make great music and work with up-and-coming artists across the country. He is also releasing a new album of his own next month – a follow up to “The Beat Down”, the vinyl album that reached #1 in the UK in 2013. But don’t take our word about his skills, check out this track from “The Beat Down”:
