The Immortal Nova has returned with a new 30 track offering, The Art of Transcendence. Lord Nova’s new mixtape maybe his most ambitious yet, featuring instrumentals that reach all the way back to Pokemon’s “Indigo Plateau” theme, as well as genre-bending, mind-bleeding anthems like “Holy Nova”. Khalil is on some other shit here, drunk off of “Saki” in his Capsule Corp. spaceship, watching re-runs of Dragonball Z. This is Khalil’s transformation to Super Saiyan level 1; and you can rest assure, he’s already working on that next level shit as we speak. Ladies and gentlemen, this is The Art of Transcendence.
Akumasanti chopped & screwed Khalil Nova’s Tha Black Layne Staley for our second premier of this mixtape. Definitely worth grabbing this today, as Nova’s space vortex-aesthetic sounds even more extraterrestrial when slowed to a crawl.
Zone 6 Sinister is a member of D4L records, and occasional Khalil Nova affiliate. Emerging from the notorious Eastside Zone 6 of Atlanta, Georgia, Zone 6 Sinister brings back a sound that’s been absent from Atlanta’s trap scene since the turn of the decade. One that Shawty Lo himself perfected on his only studio album, Units In The City. With a sound that’s reminiscent of L-O’s his own, but a sharper pen and a stronger ear for hooks, Zone 6 Sinister shines over a wide range of Zaytoven beats, as well as contributions from Lex Luger and other regional producers.
