You are undoubtedly familiar with local bad guy Nacho Picasso by now. The depraved cotton-mouth emcee who twists metaphors and similes better than perhaps any other in the game right now. Electro-trap production team Blue Sky Black Death became nearly synonymous with the Nacho P brand over the past year and change, as the crew dropped three ridiculously filthy full-lengths, and painted a whole new lane on the Rap Interstate in the process. BSBD has branched out as of late, releasing product with local duo Skull & Bones, and others, so it only makes sense that Nacho would do the same, if only to stay fresh. His new(-ish, I'm a little late on this) tape entitled Black Narcissus is more than a stretching exercise though, and our man Nacho hits the eight tracks (plus a bonus screw-mix) hard. The beats have been supplied by Raised byy Wolves (who had a hand in much of the NP x BSBD material), and a producer named Eric G, and, while they're not altogether sharp turns from his usual, spacey canvases, they're just as good/grisly, and back some of the his best verses. "Rat Race" is sneekily personal, and my favorite jam on their right now.
Give the whole damn thing a listen below, or on his bandcamp page. More Moor Gang biz after the jump.
Moor Gang, the loosely defined crew that Nacho Picasso and Jarv Dee shout out on many of their songs, gets another shout out on Jarv Dee's "Status" from his slep-on Dopamine LP from earlier this year. Its video, by Detooz Fims boss Harry Clean, is a collage of glamour shots and fast-slow close-ups, and a cool accompaniment. Check it out:
