Unsigned talent is abundant in this viral era, and sometimes preferred. Case in point, because he can move when and how he likes, J NICS just keeps releasing material. Today, he began by giving the world his short-but-sweet new freestyle, Smoke in the Wind. With smooth production by OHBLIV in the background, NICS reminiscences about some of the finer things in life, and even gets a little deep on the listener while he’s at it. While this won’t be found on it, Smoke in the Wind does set the tone for NICS’ upcoming and currently unscheduled collaborative EP, Darkside, with the infamous DJ Burn One. While we wait, why not cop NICS’ last album, Southern N*ggas Ain’t Slow: The Product, available for free stream and download now.
