"Rece Nickelz brings a raw, gritty energy that captivates audiences both young and old alike. His testimony and message in his music is very real and life changing."
-Monique Shurray, Radio Personality 95.3
"For Rece, it's not just about the music. It's about offering listeners solid, biblical truth that impacts how they live. With hard hitting rhyme schemes and lyrical flare that coincides with the heart of the gospel, Rece proves to demonstrate exactly what good, Christian hip hop is all about."
-K. Forte Hot 103 Jamz
"What I like most about Rece Nickelz music is the truth behind it. For me its a look into his true walk with God, How he comes boldly to him with life trials and tribulations and not being afraid to say, "I'm not perfect" but he continues to walk in Faith not allowing "life" to define him or to stop him from doing what he has been called to do in this ministry of music. Every song is different and has a powerful message within the lyrics and there is definitely A Story Behind His Praise."
- Samantha Hamilton, CEO Bass Promotions
Rece Rocks! With one ear to his tracks, and the other to the Holy Spirit, Rece comes into ministry situations and touches the hearts with the heart of the Father. When you can capture an ear with relevant music, and then capture a heart with inspiration from God, that’s the man I choose to do spiritual battle with every day of the week!
