DJ Nicky Rizz Once Again Plays on Hot 97 FM on Memorial Day Weekend
DJ Nicky Rizz is among the youngest DJs in the industry. He is part of the DJ group Heavy Hitters from New York City. At such a young age, he has achieved the milestone of playing on FM Hot 97 on Memorial Day Weekend. It was not the first time he got to play on the biggest radio station in New York City. Nicky Rizz has played once before on New Year’s Day 2021 as well from 7 am to 8 am.
The Staten Island DJ was thrilled to play for the second time and shared his enthusiasm in these words, “Getting to play on the biggest radio station of New York City once was definitely among the highlights of my career but getting to do that for the second time really changed the game. People who are into the nightclub scene already know the vibe I bring there but playing on Hot 97 spread it on a whole new level. I have been getting a lot of positive responses from people who listened to the radio on New Year’s Day and Memorial Day Weekend. They have started to admire my music even though they do not go party in nightclubs. This is something every DJ hopes to achieve one day, it’s to be known on the mainstream platforms and events as well.”
