Nigerian rapper MCskill ThaPreacha teams up with Str8Buttah producer/DJ Teck-Zilla on the first part of the NUCLEUS series, a 4-track EP which has MCskill rhyming over vintage hip-hop beats. The 4 track EP starts with “Positive Energy” where MCskill flexes his lyrical muscle over a soul-tinged boombap beat that helps open up the project. The second track “Fantasy rap” has a more solemn feel but MCskill goes for a more out the box topic as he delivers outlandish verbal illustrations. On “From the ground up” the duo go back to the boombap essence with a dark flute-like sample and hard hitting drums plus an energetic MOP sample. The final track “Dreams” closes up the project on a positive note as MCskill urges the listeners to go out and work for his or her dream regardless of the obstacles they might face. This collaboration has been anticipated and its great that it is finally here.
