Picture Perfect Part 1: Tactical

Hello and welcome to the third season premiere of The Shower Hour! I am your host DJ Niko Treecko Frappuccino and I play my show every Saturday evening. This hour program consists of a variety of artists, mostly pulling from the Hip Hop genre’s finest minds both old and new.

Check out this link for the Shower Hour facebook page for up to date posts on new programming and content.


Check out the link below for the program, below that will be song links alongside my comments on why I’ve chosen them for this particular Hour of musical Shower.



DJ Khaled seems to always find a way of getting the right heads together for a solid single, no matter what time of year. This summertime ode to love not only reminds us of the relevancy of Bryson Tiller, but also affirms what we already know about Rihanna. Her delivery and charm are exceptional, making anyone by comparison look like an amateur. The Santana riff ties the beat together as the foundational glue, and I could not think of a better producer than DJ Khaled to revitalize this gorgeous sound.



My roommates happened to have the Red Light District album on vinyl, and stumbling upon this single after hearing it in Tropic Thunder brought back the visceral pleasure I got from it. Such hot, much flavor. “Caught him with an uppercut, kicked him in his ass!”



There are a multitude of Hip Hop origin films out there, the one I hear about the most being 8 Mile. Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ makes 8 Mile look like a prepubescent white boy’s wet dream. This film has punch, it has character. It may be sparsed with fiction here and there, but it feels more real than Eminem’s ‘love-making’ scene with Brittany Murphy. Seriously, Em, get over yourself.

      I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100 sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

        Hi Darrin! Please check out the comments on my ‘Dope Enough For You’ post which is one of the more recent episodes of The Shower Hour. I gave similar advice to another viewer, and this information could help you as well. Have a nice day!

      Wonderful blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

        Hi Daron! I don’t know of any specific Hip Hop forums that I would regularly visit, I just listen to a lot of my friend’s music and I explore youtube for new artists or less known songs. As for discussion forums, you can check out 4chan’s music blog section linked here: http://boards.4chan.org/mu/catalog
        Thank you and have a nice day!

      excellent issues altogether, you just received a new reader. What might you suggest in regards to your post that you made a few days ago? Any positive?

      • Niko   On   October 21, 2017 at 11:16 am

        Hi Brett! Not sure if I understand the question, my suggestions revolving around new music, or suggestions about which of my programs to view? Have a nice day!
