“I rap for lifers and felons,” Nutso proclaims on “Unda Ground,” the intro to his latest EP, Divided Souls, completed with DJ Pain 1 and his Divided Souls production team. But Nutso’s lyrics transcend and boxes one may try to place them in. Perhaps Nutso’s most important gift as an MC is his ability to describe the beautiful struggle while never slacking on a bar. While the Queens product has dropped a slew of quality EPs over the past few years, he’s also stayed busy working with and showing love to the next generation of MCs on the rise. With a winner-take-all mentality and the quality music to back him up, Nutso shows why he’s one of the most consistent and gifted MCs coming out of the NYC. In this exclusive interview, we talk about Divided Souls, finding success as an indie artist, his new album with Domingo titled Red Sunday, working with legends like Kool G. Rap, and much more. Stay tuned after the interview as Nutso drops an exclusive acapella and survives a round of questions served via the Random Question Generator (if you want to know what homie’s last dream was, here’s your chance).

Back in 1996 Shaquille O’Neal dropped his You Can’t Stop the Reign album and despite a whopping seventeen tracks there was one that was conspicuously missing. “The Bigger They R”, featuring Fat Joe, Big Pun and Easy Mo Bee didn’t make the cut due to legal reasons unbeknownst to us. But now, thanks to the powers of the internet the track is finally out, eighteen years later. Produced by Domingo we get verses from Shaq, Fat Joe, Big Pun, and even legendary producer Easy Mo Bee. Listen after the jump!

Check out this new single off Domingo’s Same Game New Rules compilation, dropping next week. Domingo sent me the advance on the album last week and of all the quality and dopeness on the project, this is my favorite cut. What’s even doper about this song is how GP100 comes out of nowhere in the middle of the verse and absolutely wrecks shop. Definitely one to keep on repeat.

Few producers have the resume of Domingo, but the casual fan would have no idea, because dude’s not the type to let you know. Either you know or you don’t, and either’s fine with the man who’s only getting better as a producer, which is kind of scary. From working with Big Pun and Guru to managing Kool G. Rap and a new partnership with up-and-coming talent Nutso, there’s no shortage of dope stories and game. As Domingo readies his third compilation, Same Game, New Rules, dropping later in August, he takes some time to talk about why this compilation will be his last, why he split from Fat Beats, looks back on his previous tracks, lets us know what G. Rap’s up to, where Rugged Intellect went, how he got Bamboo on the new album, what it’s like working with Big Pun’s son Chris Rivers and the comparisons to Pun, why 360 deals are garbage, how he came to give away an MPC, and a whole lot more in this exclusive interview.
Here are some quotes from the feature:
