Nick Astro “Lies”

Nick Astro is prepping a new EP, LightSkinWithThatAfro, and already a standout is the new preview below “Lies”, produced by Odd Couple. The latter puts down a fresh, churchy feel to the record (which doesn’t always go together but works here) and with each verse, Astro improves with witty wordplay or revealing thoughts. For instance, what rapper out honestly says their last project didn’t do that well? Nick rhymes just that, fitting for a song called “Lies”. Also keep a close ear to the third verse for clever name-drops including a well-delivered Derrick Rose line.
