I grabbed this Nickelus F Thank You Pi(╥) Version: 3.141592653589793238… Mixtape sometime last week and finally got a chance to listen to it a few times through the last few days and a real solid listen today. There are a bunch of different “styles” that he breaks portions of the tape down into, i.e. Freestyles, Heathen, Portishead collab, etc. About halfway through the tape there are four songs that he collabos on with Indie-Atmospheric rock group Portishead. I have never been a huge Portishead fan but I’ve also never given them too many listens and I do enjoy their music and this is when his style shines. The eerie production and backing music and vocals of Portishead couples with Nick’s Dr. Octagon/Dr. Doooom/Kool Keith flow, especially on Cowboy, and they are a perfect fit. This is definitely worth checking out and an absolutely solid offering from front to back. I give it 13 mics.
