I wrote about Spaceghostpurrp’s NASA: The Mixtape over at No Jumper because I’ve been listening to it for the last 8 hours straight, and also because I really wanted to write about something I enjoyed again.

(Green Ova, 2011)
Where I’m from, being normal is an insult
The Green Ova DJ’s crew has gotten a lot of love and publicity lately, mainly for Main Attrakions and the solo work Squadda and Mondre have put out (as well as Shady Blaze’s work). It’s really great to see all the kids attached to the based movement getting shine, not because of their ties to the Based God, but because of the quality music they’re putting out that rides an entirely different wave. Now it’s only right that their own affiliates catch some of that shine.
Team Panini is a group from Belgium (NO! don’t you dare stop fucking reading) consisting of Lil Panini and Nag, who’re both swagged the fuck out and absolutely insane. Though I’ve never been a fan of accents, this shit is universal; both Panini and Nag go in over this stunning production, provided by a young producer named Cloos, and, ahem, shut shit down. Panini is especially sharp here, reminding me of a young Cage with slight (good) traces of nerdcore artist mc chris in his nasally tone.
