Nitelen Jackson, Currently Incarcerated, Sang Rap Song With Lines Like "Already got a body on that throwaway..."



Youtube video embed of "King Night," blog post is by John Hoff

Nitelen Jackson, currently incarcerated, got his fair share of publicity here on JNS blog but it was a lot more than other people's shares. In the course of researching YouTube videos uploaded by Exotica Taylor, a stripper associated with another crime story involving a stolen gun and a fractured skull, I came upon this video, above, featuring Nitelen Jackson.

Jackson is highly identifiable by his face and distinctive tattoos, as well as his alias, King Night or King Nite. In fact, some of the lyrics in the song reflect stuff he posted on Facebook, specifically the repetition of the phrase "every day."

The song, which is done quite skillfully though this blogger is not the world's biggest fan of gangster rap music, has some very interesting lines...

Here are the two lines I find most interesting.

"Already got a body on that throwaway." (This appears to reference a "throwaway" gun of the type you use in a crime, but get rid of quickly. If the gun has a body on it, then it's been used in a murder and is the very hottest sort of gun, not something you want on your person if taken into police custody)

"I start wiping down the .38"

And yes, maybe it's just art...

Or maybe it's art making specific and detailed reference to life.

Nitelen Jackson: a bitch nigga, that's the shit I don't like. In other words, that song was done about 30 million views earlier by Chief Keef ("I don't like"). After a year on YouTube Nitelen Jackson is up to a whopping thousand views. Maybe it didn't help that they spelled "everyday" as "evervyday" so no one could find the video.

The average household in the US spends about $3,000/ year on insurance and about $30/ year buying music. Do the math, people. There's very little money in music, relatively speaking. Rapper Chief Keef plays a club with a capacity of 1,000 and sells tickets for $20. That's barely enough to pay for airfare and hotel for his entourage. He's behind on his rent and child support. If Keef isn't making any real money (and he isn't) why would you want to be a Chief Keef copycat? Y'all wannabe rappers should think about selling insurance.

INSURANCE!!!

Yes. There's a lucrative field of endeavor. Real estate has its ups and downs as well, but some people seem to really make a ton of money. And managing a fast food chain? Good, honest work. Save your money and buy your own share of the franchise.

And then there's SOLDIERING!!! The pay isn't too good, but there's a lot of long term benefits and you can totally bankroll your education that way.

Yes, being a wannabe producer of gangster music is a dead end but you know what? Somehow I think this preaching will fall on deaf ears.

Here is the Cheef Keef video referenced by the first commenter.

I am going to go listen to the misspelled "Everyday" video to see how similar the tunes are...I'd have to hear the two close together to see if there is a deliberate similarity. I mean, it's obvious the WORDS are completely different...

I must say, I listened to "Evervyday" (sic) and compared it to "I don't like" and I just don't see any similarity between the songs.

I mean, the style of many rap songs is to just lay down a beat and then the rapper "spits his rhymes" against and within the backtrack. That's the style of both songs you're comparing.

But if you're more or less accusing Nitelen Jackson of some form of plagiarism, I just don't see it. As far as I can tell, Evervyday is original, right down to the original spelling of the song. And I say that as somebody who is very inclined to be critical of Nitelen but a plagiarist, he is not.

However, I can't carry a tune in a bucket. I'm like John Belushi, who couldn't carry a tune in a bucket but loved music, couldn't help but sing along, but could barely carry a tune. No wonder that man sang the blues.

So if somebody who is musically trained can show me how the two songs are the same, my mind remains open.

Also, even if there was any form of "sampling," well, sampling is standard for this genre so...whatever.

It is amazing that,not just Jackson, all of these guys are all smiles in their Offender Locator prison pics.
This tells me that the majority of gangbangers are gay and love to be locked up with other men.
Some of your ex- topic subjects seem downright giddy like they can relax and ENBOY themselves.

I can't place it, either. I don't know where it was shot.

I swear that the way this guy is posing puts him right outside the Gay 90s standing there with his man.
Fists up in the air like a she-male at least ready to cat fight.. I refuse to watch the video and would rather poke my eyes out.

First of all, the "just trying to cause trouble" commenter writes again. I do not endorse what you are saying and if Nitelen wants to come here and comment, he is free to do so, as soon as his incarceration ends in...what is it? 2015?

However, if he were outside Gay 90s he'd be quite close to the place where Exotica Taylor worked, which is Augie's.

Some commenters say Exotica is his sister but I need to review the proof, if any.

However, in summary...

The writer of the comment is simply trying to stir up trouble.
