I’m having trouble thinking of a rapper who’s emerged in the past year’s time and captivated me as much as Seattle’s Nacho Picasso. Dude is a straight-up comedian with the bars, something that makes him both sharper than a motherfucking tack and entertaining for days. He’s not just hilarious, though; he can really make you think with some of his wordplay.
That makes for one hell of a replay value, which only gets increased thanks to the production from Blue Sky Black Death and Raised By Wolves. They’re behind Picasso’s latest opus, Exalted, which you can stream and purchase below. “Tom Hanks” is my favorite track right now.
