There are plenty of rappers out there I can imagine tagging along with to an upscale club, and many I could picture passing me a blunt at a random house party, but Nemo Achida‘s one of the very few who I can see myself chilling and doing absolutely nothing with. In a game packed with high-rollers and hustle fanatics, the Lexington, Ky. repper really knows how to relax (while somehow simultaneously churning out dope music). Follow-up to the breezy Stoop Music, newly-leaked mixtape cut Wasting Time finds the emcee whiling away a few spare minutes in laid-back reflection. Flywalker produces, looping a warm bell/flute sample to craft a headnodic backdrop for his bold and confident yet unflappably chill brand of braggadocio: “Abstract, I’m a little bit past that / I ain’t different, I’m next level homie, grasp that.” Does this mellow selection leave you wishing you could kick it a little longer with Nemo Achida? You’ll get your chance on November 15, when the artist’s Booth-sponsored Nemotional LP hits our mixtape page for free streaming and download.
