If you’re anything like me (and I know y’all aspire to be just like me), then Slumber is something that you didn’t get nearly enough of anoche. While a couple more hours of shut-eye may not be an option, those currently running (like yours truly) on coffee fumes will undoubtedly appreciate the combo of nerve-soothing smoothness and mood-elevating lyricism that Booth newcomer J. NiCS serves up on his latest mixtape leak. Making its world premiere right here in the Booth, this head-noddable jam sees reader-approved beatsmith Numonics flipping a sample from Eurodisco group Silver Convention’s Land of Make Believe into a fittingly dreamy backdrop for the Miami native’s thoughts on struggle, hardship and the grind. Acknowledging that times are tough, the artist nonetheless expresses hope for the future and gratitude for the people in his life: “We ain’t got much, but at least we got each other.” Digging this understated banger? More freshness awaits on NiCS’ 2DopeBoyz/DJBooth.net-cosponsored Champion Rizla mixtape, set to hit our front page for free streaming and download Feb. 1.
