Rapper NikeeJS lays down some lyrics on Thursday, Feb. 16, 2012 in Jackson, Minn.   When the rapper Nikee JS started recording rhymes at 14, his lyrics relied mostly on Beamers and bling. But 12 years later, he's flipped the script. Instead of rapping of fast cars, flashy jewelry and champagne, Nikee JS now draws inspiration from the cornfields of his native Jackson. He aims to bring a small-town sensibility to the rap scene.  (AP Photo/Minnesota Public Radio, Nikki Tundel )
