With millions of YouTube views and a legion of devoted fans, Fat Nickis living his best life. That's an ambiance that penetrates the bulk of his newest release, broadcast in the brand-new video for his Blackbear-featuring single,"Ice Out."In the visual, Nick handles the role of a young female celebrating her 15th birthday with a quinceañera. Covered in luminous pink lights and tattoos, the visual releases the sense that Nick was more interested in being commemorated like royalty than being ironic. That's Nick in a nutshell.Since rupturing onto the scene with his Buffet Boys mixtape nearly 5 years back, this charismatic, endearingly goofy rhymer has actually kept his fans amused with a sense of humor, sincerity and, of course, his own propensity infusing for all those things with his music. All of those aspects have brought him to this point, however now, he's setting his goal even greater." I was similar to,'Yo Nick, now that you have actually got a strong foundation, and like everything is larger and

much better than ever, I'm going to put everything into it so I can take it to the next level,'"Nick tells XXL of his mind state while taping this LP." I resemble,'This is it. This is the task that's going to take me to the next action that I have actually been waiting for.'I simply provided it everything."Consulting with XXL, Nick discusses his amusing "Ice Out" video, Generation Numb, his approaches for handling depression, the appeal of South Florida hip-hop and more.XXL: Your album title mean pins and needles and the idea of not feeling anything, however the material itself feels celebratory. How does your title use to the content on your new LP?Fat Nick: When you hear it you gon'be like,"Oh,

I feel you. "Lyric-wise, production-wise, everything. You'll hear it.What was your favorite tune to tape-record for this project?I really like the very first tune-- it's called "Swipe Swipe,"even if of the entire concept of the tune. Or the tune I made with

Blackbear ["Ice Out"] I resembled," Yo, this shit is fucking remarkable.

"I had enjoyable recording every goddamn song, however it's just, in particular

, those 2 songs.The video for "Ice Out"is humorous. How 'd you come up with the idea to provide yourself a quinceañera?We were supposed to do a whole other video? Last minute, shit fucked up and we couldn't do it. Like, it went to shit. It's me and my creative director. We were just believing like, "You've been doing

this princess shit, you feel quite. "I was like,"Quinceañera. Like, no one knows I'm fucking Latino."You feel me? It's

more like a culture thing, too. It's like, "Yo, I feel quite. I'm a princess let's run a quinceañera. "A couple months ago you tweeted about always being down for the "misdirected"and the" screw up"and the"kid who will not take off his t-shirt. "How do you still you associate with the underdogs of the world even as you've become a full-blown rap star?No matter what amount of money or fashion jewelry I get, I still [live] that shit every day. That's not something that you simply get up and get out of, you feel me? You're stuck to that forever. So that depression, that stress and anxiety, all that, that's with you forever. No matter what, I constantly walk in those shoes with everybody else.Right. You walk in those shoes now, but it's safe to say you're no longer the kid that's afraid to take your t-shirt off ... When I was growing up in high school, certainly I was shy, kind of insecure. And you type of grow with it and take your most significant "defects"that society believes are flaws, and you turn them to your most significant and best characteristics.What were your greatest "flaws"and how were you able to make them positives?Once again,"society"says, "Oh, he's fat. Ahh, his teeth are fucked up." Hell yeah. So I'ma take off my

t-shirt, and I still look excellent, my teeth still look fucked up, I put diamonds on them shits and I just look lit. The more you accept yourself and feel better, people are going to do it to you like, "Damn, why you so pleased, why you so lit?"You simply got ta accept yourself first and those "flaws" and everyone's gon na be like, "Oh shit, it's fucking lit. "In the past you have actually spoken on bouts with anxiety. How are you dealing with

it these days?Honestly like, in some cases you'll wake up [and] you'll feel great [

or] you'll seem like shit. It's much like during random times of day you'll just break down. I'll more than happy, then all the unexpected, I'll break down and cry and resemble, "What the fuck is going on,"and your stress and anxiety will increase. For anxiety, exactly what I do-- I just sob it out. I'll cry it out, and I'll be good like an hour after. I simply speak with buddies. If my stress and anxiety is escalating, I will text somebody and be like, "Yo, help me out for a

little bit. Just speak to me, relax me down. "That's how I learnt how to deal with it.I simply think

no one's scared to do what they wish to do, feel me? Everyone from the South Florida movement is gon na do what they desire, when they want and it's gon na work how they desire. I seem like that hasn't really been done before-- especially with the youth. South Florida definitely has the youth on its back; everybody enjoys it.Not at the minute, but we always deal with some shit. We're absolutely dealing with some shit. We don't have anything now, but we definitely have some shit.Do you ever find that people ever try to make the most of your love fun-loving persona?Everyone has haters and everybody has lovers. If you have more fans than haters, then you're on the winning side-- and I'm on the winning side, so it's lit.Check Out the 2018 Hip-Hop Music Festivals You Need to See
