Put simply, Chino’s latest offering ‘Nahh!’ was like a slug to the chest, to use the most apt simile as possible. It hit me so hard that at first I was left speechless. The Puerto Rican Superhero’s agressive flow and intricate wordplay demonstrated here show that despite his brief hiatus from the studio, he is as empassioned and focused as ever.
‘Nahh!’ contained some of the best metaphors and lyrical quality that I have heard in a long while. The track, produced by Focus…, has certainly raised the bar for lyrical hip hop and increased the desire to hear his forthcoming album ‘The RICANstruction,’ which will be released next year through his own imprint.
Look out for my Chino XL interview, coming soon to allhiphop.com.
