What do we know about Nino Bless? I don’t know him personally, but there are a few things we could extrapolate from his Booth history: he’s a Latin emcee from Brooklyn, he’s a very aggressive critic of the current state of hip-hop, and he’s a huge fan of Bone Thugs (as evidenced by a recent tribute record). If you’re yearning to learn even more about this enigmatic figure, take a listen to What’cha Know About Me, the first leak off of his forthcoming Untold Scriptures 2 mixtape. Fans of his bold, hard-hitting style are going to find a lot to like about this new track—lyrically, he pulls no punches, answering his critics in no uncertain terms and leveling pointed criticisms against Jay-Z and Drake. Vokab works the boards on this joint, pairing an icy, arpeggiated digital synth lead with subdued choral pads. Fans of Nino Bless have got a lot to look forward to in the coming months. Before US2 hits the ‘net this fall, Nino plans to drop two mixtapes: The Latin Marksman 2 (with Tony Touch) and The Nomdads (featuring beats by Madlib).
