With an infinite abundance of energy on the mic, the Super Nackman returns for Vol 4 of the MiniMansionDust tapes. Estee Nack always pulls together gems for each volume in the series, whether from recent sessions or joints from the vault. Nack has consistently been one of the most prolific artists over the last several years. Catch him spitting a verse on Westside Gunn’s latest album, or as a featured highlight on numerous other underground rapper’s albums, typically bodying emcees and demolishing every beat and loop he touches.
The ever-elusive producer, Mr. Rose always brings out the best in Nack & co with a special insight and personal firsthand knowledge of Nack’s individual skills. Mr. Rose creates precisely what suits Nack, and fittingly, he’s on the boards for 8 of the 10 tracks on Vol 4.
A few features from homies, the (Tragic)Allies, and a couple mystery guests is all Estee Nack needs as assistance on Vol 4. Crucial the Guillotine drops a verse on “MONOLITHS” as he saunters over the beat with stretched syllables. “FUKUTHOUGHT” is the posse cut with Divino, Codenine, Weapon ESP and ??? all stopping by Nack’s MiniMansion for verses over ominous xylo notes. Producer Junelyfe delivers a flurry of off-beat percussion on “TOSTONESCONSALAMI.” Nack unloads a memorable verse on “WEDONTSLIP” over fluttering sax notes. Mr. Rose supplies the Latin flavor on “LAGRIMAS” feat Divino and ???. Nack himself says the ??? Mystery guest is “Our hidden character”; he’s the “MINIMANSION Noob Saibot.” HIGHERLEARNIN” brings the tension with the strings. Producer El Maryacho provides the soulful vibes on DOTHEMOST feat C. Wellz.
Estee Nack delivers a smooth attitude, menacing rhymes and clever metaphors. The complexity of his rhyme schemes are unmatched in the rap game. His ad-libs morph into a serenade followed by Spanish phrases with machine gun bursts all at once, and he keeps it fly. Quite honestly, the singular Estee Nack has no one in his class.
