New Track: Nasty Nigel drops ‘Groundhog Day’

Nasty Nigel premiered the first track of his debut solo album on The FADER today. The Queens-bred MC has risen through the ranks of the NYC hip hop scene through his involvement with World’s Fair, an eclectic, seven-man hip hop collective; as a 2015 interview with Oyster Mag declared, World’s Fair’s sound is “raw, real, and captures the sound of NYC with each beat.” Their influence on Nasty Nigel’s solo efforts is palpable.

 

 

The new track is called “Groundhog Day,” a reference to the 1993 film of the same name. Its meaning becomes quickly apparent in the lyrics, an ode to the never-ending party cycle of NYC nightlife: “I wake up, and drink up, and sleep at a friend’s; that’s wake up, and drink up, and do it again.” Though the verses explode with a more typical energy, Nigel’s cadence slows and his voice deepens on the hooks. When layered over the haunting piano-based beat, they come together to make for a dark, icy track that epitomizes the ennui that comes from those marathon NYC weeks when the days & nights just blend together.

The release date for El Utimo Playboy: La Vida Y Los Tiempos De Nigel Rubirosa is unclear, but I look forward to what it brings nonetheless. This is definitely a promising start.
