ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Introducing ‘Mr. New York City’ Nick Diddy aka Talentino

In the Big Apple there is a rising superstar who has built a reputation of entertaining crowds with his infectious energy.

Nicolas Tolentino was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in the Bronx and Washington Heights. He got his start at an early age organizing high school parties. He went to school with members of Aventura at South Bronx High School. Toby Love and Nick performed in the same talent shows, too. “We had all the other high school crews shut down when it came to parties. We would make fliers out of regular paper,” Nick stated confidently. They started parties in neighborhood basements and formed Sucio Entertainment. He was always a leader and an organizer. When he went away to college at Old Westbury he began Gridlock Productionz. He learned many things from different people regarding moving a crowd and organizing events. “I began doing parties in college and they were always the hottest. Then on the weekends I’d come back home and throw parties in the city. I learned from ‘L Boogs’ (MTV 3) how to be a hype man and host. As I learned in college I was teaching my crew back here in the Bronx,” he recalls.

While managing a nephew who was a deejay he met the legendary promoter Sal Abbatiello, owner of Fever Records. This came to be through the assistance of the well respected choreographer/event planner Jay Faith. His relationship with Sal proved to be monumental in that he was able to work in many different upscale clubs while learning from an experienced entertainment veteran. He became a sub promoter for Sal at the legendary Copacabana. The deejay he was working with and promoting, DJ Xclusive gave him the name Nick Diddy. “I appreciated that name; the reason he gave me that name was because I was doing a lot like P Diddy. I was running parties, organizing events, I was in the movie Ghetto Dawgs 2, music videos for Jay Z’s ‘Excuse Me Miss’ and Lil Kim’s ‘Jumpoff,’ a role in the Dave Chappelle Show and I’ve modeled clothes. I’ve modeled for many designers including Sean John and I met P Diddy. I attended the John Robert Powers acting school, too. I’m also in two new movies, Scrolls the Book of Life I & II & Brooklyn Nights. I became one of the city’s hottest hype men. I did my job so well I was getting booked like an artist to host parties and events. I hosted an Arcangel concert at the United Palace. I’ve brought out Zion, Notch and De la Ghetto at Club Avalon. He has hosted a TV show through El Circuito TV. He has interviewed Tego Calderon, Notch & Zion among others.

“I decided to make the switch to being an artist. I named myself Talentino because I’m multi-talented. I love music and I feel I have the talent to display my skills not only locally, but worldwide. I have been back to the Dominican Republic to promote my music and the response has been excellent. I can rap in English and Spanish; write songs for males and females. I will release my album entitled “The Talent Show” this year. In addition, I have my own internet radio show on Urban Latino. I talk about the music industry, interview artists and I feature some of the hottest deejays in New York City spinning music.

Also Nick has performed in many of the biggest clubs and even overseas. During the summer of 2007, he performed at the Olympic Stadium in the Dominican Republic, as well as, on the Venya Carolina Show among other places. He dazzles audiences with his energetic shows. He performed at a Peru Relief Fundraising concert in Connecticut, too. Here at home in New York City he’s given tremendous performances at Melodia’s, Umbrella, Da Zha Vu, Club Snitch, Jet Set Café, Eclipse & X Bar (now called Sofa Lounge) among many others. In March 2008, he gave a historic performance at the world renowned China Club to a packed club with a diverse audience. The China Club is known for famous & established artists that grace their stage. This relatively new & gifted artist seized an opportunity, promoted the event with a lot of passion and made history along the way. He was congratulated afterwards by the promotion company owner for a great show.

Introduciendo ‘Mr. New York City’ Nick Diddy (Talentino)

En la Gran Manzana hay un súper estrella que ha desarrollado una reputación acerca de entreteniendo el público con su energía infecciosa.

Nicolas Tolentino nació en la República Dominicana y se crió en el Bronx y Washington Heights. Comenzó desde joven organizando fiestas. Fue a la escuela secundaria South Bronx High School con miembros del grupo Aventura. Nick y Toby Love participaban en los mismo espectáculos de talento. “Tuvimos todas las otras escuelas siguiendonos cuando se trataba de las fiestas. Hicimos los ‘fliers’ de papel regular,” Nick comentó. Comenzaron fiestas en su barrio y formaron Sucio Entertainment. Nick siempre era un líder y un organizador. Cuando asistió la Universidad en Old Westbury comenzó Gridlock Productionz. Aprendió muchas cosas acerca de motivando el público y organizando eventos. “Hice fiestas que se dieron muy bien en la universidad entonces durante el fin de la semana volvía a la ciudad para hacer más fiestas. Aprendí de ‘L Boogs’ (MTV 3) como motivar el público y ser un presentador. Mientras que yo estaba aprendiendo le enseñaba a mi grupo en el Bronx,” dijo Nick.

Mientras que estaba manejando la carrera de su sobrino que erá deejay, Nick conoció al promotor Sal Abbatiello, dueño de la disquera Fever Records. Esto sucedió por la ayuda de Jay Faith. Esa conexión lo ayudó muchísimo porque aprendió mucho de un veterano en el entretenimiento. Fué un promotor en la discoteca legendaria, Copacabana. El deejay que el ayudó, DJ Xclusive, le dió el apodo Nick Diddy. “Yo aprecié el nombre; la razón por el nombre fué porque yo hice muchas cosas como P Diddy. Estaba organizando fiestas, actué en la película Ghetto Dawgs 2, videos musicales de Jay Z ‘Excuse Me Miss’ y de Lil Kim ‘Jumpoff,’ hice un papel en el programa de Dave Chappelle. También he modelado ropa incluyendo Sean John. Tuve la oportunidad de conocer a P Diddy. Estudié actuación en la escuela de John Robert Powers. Estoy en dos películas nuevas, Scrolls the Book of Life I & II y Brooklyn Nights. Me hice uno de los más conocido motivadores de fiesta. Hice mi trabajo tan bien que me contrataban como artista. Yo presenté a Arcangel en el United Palace, Zion, Notch y De La Ghetto en Club Avalon. Yo he entrevistado artistas para El Circuito TV como Tego Calderón, Notch, Zion y otros.

“Yo decidí ser artista porque me encanta la música. Tomé el nombre Talentino porque tengo muchos talentos. Siento que con la música puedo mostrar mis talentos no solamente local pero mundial. He regresado a la República Dominicana para promocionar mi música y ha sido bien recibido. Yo rapeo en inglés y español; escribo canciones para hombres y mujeres. Mi primer CD titulado ‘The Talent Show’ saldrá este año. Yo tengo mi propio programa en la radio por internet con Urban Latino. Yo hablo de la indústria de música, entrevisto artistas y siempre tengo un deejay sobresaliente de Nueva York.

Nick ha cantado en el Estadio Olímpico en la Republica Dominicana durante el verano del 2007. También cantó en el programa de Venya Carolina. Participó en un programa en Connecticut para los damnificados de Perú. En Nueva York, ha cantado en muchas de las discotecas populares. Por ejemplo, Melodia’s, Umbrella, Da Zha Vu, Jet Set Café, Eclipse, Club Snitch, X Bar (ahora llamado Sofa Lounge) y otros. En marzo del 2008 dió una presentación histórica en el China Club que estuvo lleño con un público diverso. La discoteca que ha visto muchos artistas establecidos y famosos le dió una oportunidad a Talentino. Él promocionó el evento fuertemente y hasta recibió una felicitación del dueño de la promoción por un gran éxito.
