NIQUE - Losing Myself

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Anthony Corpuz
Album:
Basswood

Last we heard from NIQUE, it was late October and the Las Vegas rhymesayer was in the midst of a weekly series of digital releases leading up to the December arrival of a new street album. As evidenced by the set’s conspicuous absence from our iPods, that December drop date didn’t happen. Not to worry, though—it hasn’t fallen by the wayside. To give his hungry fanbase an idea of where the project is headed, the Sin City emcee has unleashed Losing Myself, a fresh cut which may or may not make the final tracklist. On this introspective selection, Anthony Corpuz’ moody synth-sample production sets the stage for bars addressing the omnipresent stresses of the hustle. Despite his anxieties, NIQUE remains determined to go hard or go home: “If I don’t blow and make it big, and all the pressure makes me give / Forgot about what I’ve done or did, an average life and a life to live.” Think Losing Myself deserves to be part of Basswood? Debate away—and, of course, keep your browsers locked for all the latest on the currently-unscheduled LP.
