J NICS - Swangin' [Freestyle]

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: J NICS
  • Track: Swangin'
  • Producer: Sean Jemisson
  • Album: Southern N*ggas Ain't Slow Mixtape

E.S.G. may no longer have the cachet of a Bun B or Slim Thug, but he was one of the most influential artists on the H-town scene, helping to popularize the chopped-n-screwed style that would become his hometown's trademark. Thus, the industry veteran's name sounds right at home among the hip-hop greats celebrated on Booth fave J NiCS' latest project, a Tribute to the Southern pioneers who laid the groundwork for the up-and-coming rhymesayer's sound and style. On newly-leaked standout cut Swangin', the Floridian rhymesayer borrows the lushly-sampled Sean Jemisson production from '95 single Swangin' & Bangin to back him as he offers fans a little insight into the formative experiences that made him who he is today—from the development of his spiritual beliefs (“I read my scriptures as a teenager”) to the loss of loved ones (“I still shed tears when I think about my little cousin...”). Has this introspective yet whip-ready freestyle piqued your interest? What are you waiting for—click here to stream and/or download the Booth-sponsored first half of NiCS' Southern N*ggas Ain't Slow mixtape series.
