Nines (@Nines1Ace) – ‘Crop Circle’
North west London trap star turn UK Rap star, Nines follows up his critical and commercially successful debut album, ‘One Foot Out’, with his highly-anticipated second album, ‘Crop Circle’, released on XL Recordings.
Running at 52 minutes, and eighteen-tracks long, ‘Crop Circle’ builds on where ‘One Foot Out’ left off, with reflective tales over dabbling in both street-life and being artist. On the track, ‘Pictures In A Frame’ he details how he still struggles to get radio support even after having a Top 5 album.
Sonically the album is a very easy listen, with Soul & RnB-inspired vibes in parts, perfect for playing in car on a summer’s day drive. He stays clear of the current wave of Afroswing rap, opting for smooth-crisp production from the likes ofglides over confidently, in his signature monotone flow deliverying clever and slick lines.
Joining him on the album are the likes of; Ray BLK, Skrapz, J Styles, Tee Supreme, SL, Yung Fume, Tiggs Da Author Dave, Trapstar Toxic, Haile (WSTRN), Little T, Fatz, Storm, and Street,
