Nino Blaq of the Street Money conglomerate has finally dropped his ‘T.R.U.T.H.’ project, showcasing his knack for calling on day-to-day experiences and pairing those with references to West African kings and the like.
The Internets would say that Nino is ‘woke,’ but perhaps the dopest thing here is that the Street Money soldier recognizes that the medicine goes down a little easier with some sugar.
So he’s employed producer Genocide Beats to knock out the majority of ‘T.R.U.T.H.’ — the versatility is immense. Definitely a pleasant surprise. Songs like ‘No Other Way’ sound like they could’ve easily belonged to the members of Beanie Sigel’s Street Property circa the early 2000s and Nino pulls it off without a hitch, like a fiery, youthful Young Buck.
‘Mystery’ features Instagram fave Bankroll PJ on the hook as Nino breaks down a few history lessons that PJ isn’t likely to be learning in school. ‘Illuminating and lighting, I’m Georgia Power, huh? You’re born a god but you learn to be a coward huh?’
‘Misery Love Company’ made me think of Bankroll. And I’m glad about it. Glad to see the Street Money team moving on the momentum their man left. Nino Blaq is his own man, his own artist and he offers his own outlook on life with ‘T.R.U.T.H.,’ giving us another reason to holler ‘Streeeeeet.’
