Primed to heat up the summer, platinum-certified genre-breaking rapper Cochise unleashes his new NO ONE’S NICE TO ME EP.
These seven tracks illustrate the evolution of his unpredictable and undeniable sound over production from an A-list cadre of creators such as BNYX, TM88, Akachi. On the opener “HYDROPLANE,” cinematic strings swell underneath glimmering keys, and Cochise locks into a splashy flow. He deftly flexes, “I’m counting out this money, while I’m counting up my blessings.” An ominous vocal sample sets the tone for “YAKUZA TIES.” His emotionally charged delivery cuts through the 808s awash in waves of distorted guitar. Elsewhere, thick bass groans between his high-pitched intonation on the venomous and vital “SUPER VILLAIN.” The trip concludes on the ethereal and entrancing “EUROPEAN DREAM.” Glassy melodies drift in and out of the beat, and his bars practically levitate over the production as he blasts off to another realm.
