In his Satires, the Roman poet Juvenal posed the question, “Who watches The Watchmen?” (You may remember the quote from Alan Moore’s graphic novel, or its ‘09 cinematic adaptation.) Nearly two milennia later, we have our answer: anyone who appreciates dope underground hip-hop. Nino Bless’ latest mixtape single is an action-packed lyrical free-for-all guaranteed to captivate anyone with a taste for microphone murder. Over an Elite beat seemingly interpolated from Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells, the Latin Marksman delivers bars brimming with aggressive, wordplay-driven punchlines. Cambatta, Styles P. and Crooked I do a little sharpshooting of their own on the guest tip. For this dope collaborative cut and much more, check out Bless’ R.O.A.M. 2 The Greater Fool street album when it drops digitally this Friday, the 18th.
