Album:
Framed and Unfocused Mixtape

Like Tom’s Diner, the Suzanne Vega hit we’ve heard sampled in tracks by 2Pac, Gorilla Zoe, Mike Dreams, Al Gator and Kevin Cossom, soul standard A Change Is Gonna Come has received its share of rotation in the Booth, inspiring Urban Mystic‘s A Change Has Come, Izza Kizza‘s Runnin’ and now NIQUE‘s Booth debut, Long Time Comin. On the newly-leaked mixtape cut, the Henderson, Nevada representative (previously heard on Marion Write‘s Everybody Move) flows over a Chipmunk-speed sample from Sam Cooke’s original recording of ACIGC (courtesy of producer Jon Jon), explaining just how drastically he plans on changing the music game. On the tail end of verse one, he mixes rap with album-reviewing, heaping praise on a few of the most-buzzed-about artists and releases of the past year or so (Blueprint 3, So Far Gone and 808s & Heartbreak are “classic,” Asher‘s “nice,” Cudi‘s “brilliant…”) Those digging NIQUE’s u-NIQUE style can download his newly-released Framed & Unfocused mixtape at the link below – or, buy a “Purple” promotional T-Shirt at the artist’s MySpace and get a physical copy of the street album in the bargain.
