Nique may still be keeping mum about his plans for the material he’s been holed up in the studio recording over the past six or seven months but, as he reminded us with last month’s NO!, the Las Vegas representative knows exactly what it takes to please the discerning hip-hop head. As the artist puts it on his latest unreleased joint,”I Know What You Like.” As on this cut’s predecessor, Mr. Music handles productions, trading the frantic, rock-informed grooves of NO! for a lower-key synth arrangement as the artist asks a certain female to “...be [his] everything.” In conversational bars, the freestyle alum mixes soul-searching with smooth-talk, mulling over his ambivalence in regard to commitment before extending a formal offer: “I got the love pistol loaded, you could be the one I draw for.” A weird line, to be damn sure—but if she (ahem) pulls the trigger, the artist will know beyond the shadow of a doubt that she’s a keeper. This joint is yet-unattached to any forthcoming project, but if Nique and Mr. Music keep cranking out tunes this fresh, fans may start clamoring for a full-length collaboration. As always, Booth readers get the last word…
