Last time we heard from Minneapolis, Minnesota MC Nikko Lafre, it was just over a week ago when he shared the Drew Love-assisted "Hometown Love." Now he returns with "Ridin," a sensual slo-mo track produced again by frequent collaborator K. Beatz.
Beginning subtly, "Ridin" quickly expands into an almost Houston-esque track (Lafre mentions an old school chevy with a fresh paint job, big rims, and woodgrain steering wheel), with trippy, distant synths providing the only accompaniment to a bare-bones beat and Lafre's voice. The rapper spits to a woman throughout the song, even busting out some sung vocals for the hook in order to seal the deal.
Stay tuned for more from Nikko Lafre, he's having a great 2014 so far.
And bet this shit will get you wet like the paint job
And this weed will get you high like the rims sit
I'll be grippin' on that grain while I'm whippin' on that thang
Girl I'm nothin' like the niggas you been with
