Nacho Picasso’s highly anticipated — and I try not to use that term often — new album High & Mighty is here. Unlike his previous drops, Nacho’s recruited a grip of different producers for this one, including Seattle’s two most well-known: Jake and Vita. It makes for a more dynamic listening experience and reminds listeners like me that, yes, dude is a more well-rounded rapper than I’ve given credit for in the past. In the ongoing pissing match that is Name The Next Seattle Rapper to Blow, Nacho is probably at the top of the list.
My personal bet is on Romaro Franceswa. He’s going to go to those places that Dyme Def should have gone if they hadn’t been side-tracked (see: Sex Tape).
