On the latest episode of In The Field with Rosecrans Vic, we pull up to Fairfax with an original of the section, rapper Niko G4. We walk from Niko’s office up the block to his alma mater Fairfax High School while reminiscing about the golden age of Fairfax as he describes early encounters with Rick Ross, Nick Diamond, Mac Miller and more. Once we arrive at the stage where Niko performed music for the first time, we start to discuss the beginning of his career, meeting Dom Kennedy, being on the Yellow Album, going on tour in 2012, being ahead of his time fashion-wise and more.
