Feel the essence of Indie music in Nick Doxa’s new album, I’M NOT COMING BACK

Nick Doxa is bringing his new album, I’M NOT COMING BACK. This indie artist has gained a lot of recognition for his musical skill and also his willingness to discuss his experiences, raw and vulnerable, touching on topics of addiction and recovery.

Nick Doxa is a young hip-hop artist based in Tampa, Florida. While he is a young and emerging artist at the moment, he also had a turbulent history that now inspires his art. Doxa grew up in a small town, and during much of his adolescence, he was involved with drugs, something that was not easy for the artist. He recorded and released songs about this experience and all the difficulties he faced under the name Doxa, which eventually led to him adopting Nick Doxa as his artistic name, which came from the nickname given to him by his community.

The first pieces Doxa released were Paradise and Disastrous, two singles that explored important topics and reflected the raw struggles in which the musician was involved at the time. Now, after his third time in rehab, the artist is releasing I’M NOT COMING BACK, the sharp, emotional album that dives deep into his mind and heart, deep into all the complex internal issues that he faces. It’s a true reflection of his struggles with the good, the bad, and the ugly. The album considers his drug abuse, the suicidal ideas he has faced and continues to battle, his past relationships and the desire for new ones, the resentment against his past, and the hate he feels for the choices he has made.

I’M NOT COMING BACK is raw and real. It is the true story of Nick Doxa, not hiding anything and not holding anything back. The artist believes that people who are not ready to listen to his story should not take on the album, as it is very genuine, and that means that it tackles a lot of difficult topics. It is a dive into the artist’s struggles and pain, shaped through music, but the core is there. 


Doxa’s goals with the album is not just to discuss his experiences but also to reach out to the people struggling with the same things as he is. In particular, he wants to reach the kids and teens who are fighting the same fight against drugs and show them that there is hope and that there are others who can offer help and support. The main feeling that listeners can come away with is that they are not alone. 

The album is likely to resonate with people who have faced struggles with drug abuse themselves but also with those looking for a raw story of overcoming. It’s a great example of indie hip-hop with a lot to offer to fans of the genre.

You can find more information about the artist on his website, and here you will also discover the links to all the places where the album is available. I’M NOT COMING BACK is available to stream on Spotify and other major music platforms.


We had the pleasure of interviewing Nick Doxa. Here are the excerpts from the interview. 

Hi Nick, Great to have you with us today! Please share with our readers about your album, I’M NOT COMING BACK.

Hi, I was born Nicholas Pasquale Benvenuti. I am a 20-year-old Artist from Tampa, Florida, and I make RNB/Hip-Hop music. My debut album, “I’M NOT COMING BACK,” just dropped, and it is 8 tracks long. The album tells my story of addiction and heartbreak throughout my teenage years. When I was in middle school, I started taking drugs as a way to cope before I ever found music. It felt like my only way out. Throughout the years, I wrote songs and got some streams and followers, but I never really took it seriously. In high school, I was the “rapper kid.” People knew I made music, and a lot of people from my hometown and school listened to it. My music then was nowhere near what it is now. This album is real to me. There aren’t very many mind-bending bars in it, but the lyrics are true to the core, and it tells my story. I was never able to express myself without drugs. This album gave me that chance.

Please tell us more about your journey.

Most of the songs were made under the influence, and they heavily reflect that. Teenage heartbreak, substance abuse, and partying are the biggest themes in the album. I released it on April 7th while I was still in rehab for my opioid addiction. The album was made over the course of about 6 months. It started when I moved from Tampa to Tallahassee, Florida, to go to college. While attending TCC (Tallahassee Community College), my friend and an artist featured on the album AYYJAKE (born Jacob Alvarado) created two songs that began the process of creating the album, “LEAVE!ME!” and “THE PARTY’S OVER.” Both songs ended up on the final tracklist, and they set off a journey to create a full project to revive my music career and began my rise to fame. 

After an overdose in Tallahassee, I moved back to my hometown of Tampa and continued my education as HCC while living on the USF campus. There I linked up with an old friend who produces under the name Lil Star. He introduced me to SwiperDaFaux, who is featured on my song “WATER!” and another artist who helped with the project named Tay. After being home for around 3 months, I had nearly finished the album before suffering another overdose and having to finish the project from rehab. However, before I left, our videographer and prominent music industry professional, Will Shootz became my manager so I could send out the project while finishing my stay in treatment. I shot a couple of demo videos and recorded some audio messages, and sent out the final project. 

My Instagram has amassed over 10k followers, and my TikTok has 97k followers. When I return home, we are going to be filming the LEAVE!ME! music video, and it will be featured on the front page of Genius. 

So tell us, how can people find out more about you?

Thank you so much, Nick, for giving us your precious time! We wish you all the best for your journey ahead!
