Chino XL - Nahh!

It’s been over a year since Chino XL stepped into the Booth with his first (and, to date. only) solo feature, the Bun-B assisted Cross Your Heart...  so, does that mean he’s fallen off?  Nahhh! As evidenced by the newly-released lead single off his forthcoming RICANstruction LP, the rapper’s still very much on his grind, and his lyrical skills have only grown sharper in his time away from our frontpage. Chino kicks things off with the claim that no one in the game thinks quite like him, and proceeds to prove that assertion many times over; after hearing him spit more punchlines in three verses than some rappers do in an entire album, I can only conclude that his internal monologue consists of an endless series of on-point puns—it would be easier to quote a line that isn’t a wordplay-driven/allusive wisecrack than to decide on one standout bon mot.  Backed by Focus’ ominous, baroque harpsichord arpeggios, this cut is a shoo-in for repeat spins among our resident lyrical heads.  For more hot beats and knotty wordplay, grab a copy of XL’s latest full-length when it drops this February.
