Nickelus F ft. XV - Shine On

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: Nickelus F
Featuring:
Producer:
C4 [for Wisguy Productions]
Album:
Season Premiere

Pink Floyd’s Shine On (You Crazy Diamond) was an epic, nine-part composition dedicated to former band member Syd Barrett, whose heavy use of LSD had driven him permanently over the edge. Heavy stuff. Thankfully, this Shine On, the inaugural leak off Nickelus F.‘s forthcoming street album, is both shorter and much less depressing, though C4‘s sampled boardwork retains a little bit of that inimitable Pink Floyd gloom. Over the Wisguy Productions beatsmith’s classic rock backdrop, the Richmond, Va. up-and-comer (and freestyle series alum) chronicles his artistic grind in measured but intense opening and closing bars, and house favorite XV laces the track’s middle portion with a characteristically engaging mix of wit, nostalgia and insight: “I ain’t a bad kid but mama said ‘Stay grounded;’ Now I miss the room I used to write in when [I was] grounded.” If this spacey, unconventionally fresh mixtape banger piques your interest, you’ll most definitely want to tune in to Nickelus F.‘s channel in early May, when his latest street album is set to make its Season Premiere.
