When you've got the work ethic like Nutso, you deserve a break once in a while. But between the champagne, women and sticky green, it's easy to think that the Queens emcee lives a hedonistic lifestyle. For Nutso's latest leak, the Q-Borough spitter unveils "This Is What The Like," as featured on his collaborative LP, 'Fluushang Metto,' produced entirely by Swiss producer, Dee Metto. Instead of the overblown hi-hat heavy beat that's been diluted by countless producers, Metto opts for a stripped down, head nodding beat that'll ignite any basement party, mix-show or iPod. Check out "This is What They Like" and the rest of the gems featured on 'Fluushang Metto,' which is now available.
Producer-singer-songwriter-DJ-everything else rhêtorík bares his soul on ‘Behind Closed Doors.’ The EP is a sum of his whimsy and his triumphs, a showcase of his insecurities, but also a promise to himself and to his fans that there will be light in their lives. Across five songs and in 20 minutes, rhêtorík makes quick work of what hurts him and how he’s learned to heal himself.
“I took a year from 24 to 25, where I went completely stone-cold sober, really got into the vlogging, and just took a year of internal reflection,” he told DJBooth. His reflections led him to question himself and his motives, and ‘Behind Closed Doors’ is the immediate product of his weighty introspection. The indie-meets-EDM influences on the project undoubtedly move music forward, but it’s rhêtorík’s hopeful message that makes him a truly enduring artist.
