For those unfamiliar with Nino SLG, this South London talent is one of the most hyped rap newcomers to have emerged from the UK in quite some time.
With a melodic approach to the genre, Nino SLG crafts songs that present thoughtful lyricism over intricate productions. The result is a sound that is both well-constructed and also deeply moving to experience.
‘What’s Left’ is taken from the artist’s newly-released ‘Mirror Story’ EP, of which he says:
“My new EP is a story about the person I can see in the mirror. It’s my most vulnerable project to date, and I want people to see this side of me. Lyrically I’ve touched on materialism and everyday possessions, concepts and distractions to try and show how these steer people away from conquering the real problem which is usually themselves. Musically, I’ve reflected the contrasting emotions in the lyrics by switching up the production as you move through the project. Mirror Story is about exploring myself and my emotions, in the hope that there might be other people out there who are feeling the same – I hope that my EP makes them feel understood.“
With support from the likes of BBC Introducing and Radio 1, as well as Clash, i-D, DMY and Crack magazines already under his belt, Nino SLG is well and truly on his way to global stardom.
