Do you appreciate realness in rap music? Well, it don't get any realer than Nikko Lafre's latest feature. On Geechi's Story: Explosions, the Minneapolis native steps into the shoes of his own uncle, who was incarcerated for multiple drug offenses and an attempted murder before being deported for bad behavior in prison. Delivered over K. Beats's slow-burning synth grooves, Lafre's first-person rhymes offer an powerful glimpse into the psyche of a young dealer determined to get his shine by any means necessary. An unknown singer's haunting hook vocals round out the package. For Geechi's Story and much more, cop Nikko's MPLS: West End Stories LP when it drops independently in August.
