The Ric Flair Nixtape is a pleasure-first listening experience, Nix deploys each of his tricks showcasing works from mainstream and underground artist alike. Just like the nature boy himself he puts his persona in his work. Stylin’ and profilin’ with each cut, break and hook of each song used for the mixtape. Entire segments are devoted to hip hop soul, alternative r&b, dance and neo soul. You’ll hear flashes of narratives as well as snippets of dialogue.
Brining a unique touch to renowned tunes, where he reshapes the tracks of others that may seem totally foreign to the original. Have a keen ear for detail, and listen how seemingly clean he puts clips together. From his opening transition of hip hop heavyweights ASAP Rocky’s “LSD” to Wale’s “Girl on Drugs”. It gives you a sense of what direction it will take you. Throughout the mixtape there are subtle reinventions of artist’s tracks like Miguel, Drake, Bryson Tiller and Childish Gambino. Then less recognizable tracks from the likes of Goldlink, Esta, Doja Cat, Phony Ppl. The appeal of these tracks is that it will resonate with all audiences, from die-hards to newcomers. Press play and take the journey yourself.
