Those who peeped the visuals for NIKO IS’ first feature, Smoking Jacket, likely noticed an Action Bronson look-alike as one of the Rio de Janeiro-born, Florida-based spitter’s poker buddies. On Steffi Graf, the second world premiere off NIKO’s Booth-hosted forthcoming full-length, the Flushing, Queens buzzmaker actually joins NIKO as a guest rhymesayer. In contrast to the aforementioned cut’s laid-back vibe, this cut is all about in-your face swagger; RiskyBeats’ wailing sax and rock’n'roll piano back the collaborators as they deliver verses jam-packed with inventive braggadocio. Like what you’re hearing? More fresh cuts await on Chill Cosby, scheduled to hit The DJBooth December 3, for free streaming and download.
