Nino Bless’ last feature, May’s Alien Jesus, saw the artist delivering a witty lyrical rundown of the falsehoods we’re constantly fed by the mainstream media and the powers that be. On newly-released mixtape standout Bonfire, the BK native turns that razor-sharp critical eye inward. Over a brooding Nemesis production sampled from electronic group Blue Foundations’ jam of the same title, Bless surveys his current position in the game with a steely gaze, recognizing that he has a long, hard road ahead of him but expressing confidence that he’ll ultimately reign victorious. Soul Khan digs even deeper on the guest tip, laying bare his spiritual doubts and hopes for the future on the back end. Fans can find Bonfire and many more thought-provoking jams on Bless’ Latin Marksman 2: R.O.A.M. Soul Khan’s latest project, the Wellstone EP, is still available for streaming and download in the Booth.
