I don’t know about you guys, but I am an absolute sucker for old-school vocal samples. Not old-school as in the ‘90s, but way old school, as in the ‘60s and ‘70s. With that in mind, it’s no wonder I was immediately drawn into NRFS. Right off the bat, producer J-Rell chops up an old school sample for the intro to his bare-bones, drum-laden instrumental. While the beat drew me in, the quartet of Windy City emcees, Neak, Rashid Hadee, F.A.B.L.E and Sincerely Yours, kept me listening. Good luck picking a winner in the “who had the best verse” debate, because each emcee showcases some seriously impressive wordplay. NRFS is not part of anything bigger, but those feeling it should stay tuned; all four of the artists involved will be dropping solo projects later this calender year.
