MCskill ThaPreacha & Teck-Zilla NUCLEUS, Vol. 1

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. NUCLEUS Vol. 1 is quite short but it’s definitely worth the listen as MCskill ThaPreacha comes through with engaging concepts over Teck-Zilla’s solid production.
