While the word, “Wonderland” generally has positive connotations, the kingdom Alice visited in Lewis Carroll’s classic children’s books was actually a pretty f**king scary place, where beheadings are an everyday occurrence and eating or drinking the wrong thing can shrink you down to nothingness. The place J NICS describes on his latest feature, the inaugural song release of his forthcoming mixtape with DJ Burn One, is much less whimsical but equally perilous. Backed by his partner’s low-key street production, the Southern phenom rhymes about the Machiavellian treachery that reigns supreme both on the block and in the music game. Has this moody selection left you craving more? While Darkside has yet to receive a drop date, you can stay tuned to The DJBooth for release details, as well as the latest jams.
