The homie J57 just dropped this off in my inbox. I’m always open to listening to some ill beat tapes, and this is definitely defined as top billin’. They’re currently making some noise in the NYC scene and have rocked many an ILLmind producer showcase.
Crakk Nicholson is a collaborative beat project between 21-year-old producers Shy Guy (Texas) and Benjamin Bradley (Toronto/Pittsburgh). The instrumentals are a pastiche of regional hip-hop styles, which combines high and low brow aesthetics, ranging from southern trap to cerebral beat music and boom bap. The duo is based out of NYC.
