Boston, Massachusetts based emcee Hundred Round Kado (FKA Ricky Gramz) teams up with Chi-town’s Vic Mensa for a solid collaborative single titled “Nino’s Lips.” The track is a vivid tale of urban life ranging from poverty, gang affiliations, self-growth, and systemic discrimination. Bolstered by the cinematic backdrop courtesy of producer ProdByTBone, the duo take time to detail their unique experiences in their respective cities.
Hundred Round Kado leads the charge with insightful bars laced with bravado and gripping imagery. He is as passionate as ever with lines like “Dear mama, 2 packs, man, Come on?!/ I’m Brenda with them babies, if it’s trash then I’m gone” which depicts his dealings in the hood. Vic Mensa is not far behind and deliver his characteristic smooth flow and raises the bar with lines like “Angela Davies in my cadence with a Huey flow/Been too outta the box to fit inside a cubicle.” The visual is directed by @Local_Visionn who goes for a performance shot driven piece capturing the two emcees as they do what they know best.
