As many emcees have observed, there’s a big difference between “this Rap Sh*t, and that real life.” (Few, however, will admit that they themselves keep it anything less than one-hundred—it’s always those other motherf**kers.) On Nike Nando‘s latest feature, an unreleased outtake from his next street album, the Maryland emcee throws that conflict into sharp relief, rhyming about working multiple day jobs and taking his girl to McDonald’s over the incongruously swanky, string-led sample work of DeuceTheMusic. Though this joint didn’t make the final cut, those feeling it will undoubtedly find more to like on Nike Nando’ forthcoming mixtape, SprdLv. Featuring reader-approved singles Double Dragon and 301, the project is slated to drop digitally before the month is out.
