For some, like say Diddy’s son, the Road to Riches is short and paved in gold. For the rest of us, however, the journey to full bank accounts can be filled with dead ends, traffic jams and empty gas tanks. I know J NiCS can relate. After all, the Florida emcee broke down his Pepperidge Farm sweet hustle way back in January when the original avenue to assets dropped. But it turns out NiCS is far from alone, as evidenced by the addition of the aptly named (in this case) Co$$ and QuESt joining in for the official remix. Numonics’ hazy, lush and instantly captivating beat remains the same, as does NiCS opening verse, meaning it’s up to Co$$ and QuESt to bring home the glory and/or the cash and the two emcees more than live up to the challenge, displaying a penchant for lyrical revenue retrieving we can all relate to. For more from all parties involved cop NiCS Champion Rizla album, available for free stream and download right here, and start looking forward to Co$$’ Before I Awoke album on June 21 and QuESt’s How Thoughtful 2, coming later this summer.
