props to BiggieG, whoever you may be, for zipping my Singles list in two parts. Also, today or tomorrow, I’ll be posting my final list for the year here.
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.
I wrote about TKO Capone’s Louis Gucci video nearly reaching 8 million views this week over at No Jumper
