Someone on Twitter had seen a tweet of mine that was RT’d by 9th Wonder, and that person is the creator of this track. Nino is his name, and he wanted me to look at his new video, just like that. I’m thinking “I don’t know you, sir” and I could’ve been an ass and said “fuck that, I’m not looking or listening to this shit”, but that would be me judging something before I even made a chance to know if it’s good or not. That’s when I clicked the link.
Fortunately, the song is quite good, and the at-home/in-the-neighborhood vibe of the video is very cool too. Nino is hanging out with his friends and not afraid to show he drinks out of a plastic jug or has some lip balm on his dresser. Away from that, he’s a young guy with a young spirit, one that shows a bit of fearlessness and a bright outlook on his future. I didn’t have to like a damn thing, but I did. You can find out more about Nino by following him on Twitter at @Ninojayr201.
