“TELLTHETRUTHANDSHAMETHEDEVIL” is the newest export from mc/producer duo Estee Nack and Superior taken from their joint project BALADAS. The track has a broody, cinematic feel courtesy of Superior who goes behind the boards to work his magic. Estee Nack is in his element here as he delivers hard-body raps that he is known for.
“The title means ballads, these are slum ballads G” prolific Dominican wordsmith, Estee Nack’s comment on the new collaboration album with German producer, Superior. “BALADAS” is available today (March 20th), Digital/CD via Below System Records and vinyl via Tuff Kong Records. But if the word ballads has you expecting Nack to be making slow jams dedicated to the ladies you are off-mark. More like the Hip-Hop version of Narcocorrido (drug ballad) for the street corner hustlers with complex and at times abstract bars, he stokes the fire for the boom-bap fiends while dropping gems for the likkle yout’s.
Guest appearances on the album by Eto, Ice Lord, Daniel Son, Recognize Ali & Codenine.
