Though Dice Raw contributed several impressive verses to The Roots’ most recent album, ...and then you shoot your cousin, it’s been a while—over a year, in fact—since last he blessed our front page with a headlining feature. Today, he returns to his solo hustle with the release of Nothin’, single numero uno off his Rawlife label’s forthcoming compilation. Here, Rick Friedrich‘s pensive piano chords set the stage for Dice’s vivid lyrical depiction of urban poverty and struggle. Dice Raw & the Family is currently unscheduled, but we’ll keep you posted on the set as further details emerge.
