‘Nemotional’ (Mixtape)

    Lexington, Ky. native Nemo Achida hopped on our radar this past June with the release of the impressive Goodbye Brooklyn EP. And since then, the insightful rapper-producer has been putting together his most fully realized effort to date, Nemotional. While it’s labeled as a mixtape because it’s available for free online, Nemotional is truly more of a proper album from Achida. He uses moody, lush beats — some of which he produced himself — to paint lyrical pictures that dive into his views on love, music, nature, religion and politics. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself jotting down notes as you’re listening, or if you end up revisiting it several times to fully digest the themes. You can download Nemotional at DJ Booth.
