I’m usually the type who passes on Auto-Tune rap. That’s not because I dislike it. In fact, it’s mainly because you can hear it anywhere and I try to give a spotlight to other forms of hip-hop. That said, you can’t be team “support dope music in all its forms” if you’re not looking for the dopeness in every subgenre.
With that in mind, there’s something about Nito’s “Timely” interlude that grabbed my attention. It could be because the beat reminds me a bit of Childish Gambino’s “3005.” It could also be that Nito manages to make an impression on me in the minute or so that the song plays. He rides the beat and utilizes his voice as an instrument, somewhat like a Young Thug. Thugger’s influence can be heard in this one, as Nito has a similar choppy phrasing to some of his lyrics.
Check out the interlude below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
