Biography

There are 2 artists with the name Nifty.

Nifty born as Vaihi Toki in Montclaire, CA (LA) moved to the Bay Area as a kid, but was then raised throughout his teen years in The Mac (South Sacramento, CA). His parents tried to keep him away from the struggles of their environment, but as his father fell into drugs and his mother’s health started slowly declining he found himself becoming involved with drugs, sex, and money. While working a 9 to 5 to help provide for his family Nifty met up with New Hotness Entertainment producer/engineer Joel Banks. Joel had been involved with production and had a couple of artists under their entertainment group. After showcasing his music to Nifty, he became interested in rapping for New Hotness and the rest is a wrap!

Nifty went in to record his first song titled “Check The Name” and he was hooked ever since. Nifty’s dedication to rap became apparent when hypeman and first cousin ULA moved back to Sacramento from the I.E.(Inland Empire, LA) in March of 2007. They started up a mixtape Da Capitol Movement Mixtape Vol. 1. Unfortunately, a month later his mother died in April of 2007 (R.I.P. Leamelino Elaipalesi Toki). Nifty’s life changed dramatically from that point on and he was destined to make it by any means necessary. Nifty dropped the mixtape Da Capitol Movement Vol. 1 in October, 2007 to generate a big buzz in Sacramento, but it wasnt enough for him at this point in his career.
