While the title prepared for me for quite a heavy track, nothing could quite prepare me for the pensive resonance found within NikoPease’s single “Nothing is Working”.
Any fans of Yelawolf are sure to appreciate the up and coming Hip Hop artist’s more melodic approach to Hip Hop which comes with the capacity to leave a lump in your throat as you ingest the raw and candid Rap bars.
The constant vocals switch-ups amplify the emotion in this track. Instead of hiding behind plenty of vocal effects, NikoPease allowed their vocals to run clean, making it frankly impossible not to get stung by the lyrics in Nothing is Working.
There really is little room to wonder why so many Hip Hop fans are drawn to NikoPease’s melancholic and arrestive approach to the genre. Nothing is Working is a track which will definitely stick with me for a while.
