First heard during Nigo’s Kenzo FW22 runway show, the long-awaited single ‘Hear Me Cleary’ from Bape’s Founder Nigo featuring Pusha T has finally arrived.
Following the blueprint ‘Want It Bad’ and ‘Arya,’ everything about the record mirrors the elevated style of his wardrobe. The swirls of the dizzying synths, with the drums bashing around the edges. “The coke speaks to my soul like a medium.” This is a man who has become consumed by the snowfall around him. No matter the soundscape, his ability to make each coke reference fresh and new is astounding. Like Tom Brady, the precision only gets better with age.
Nigo’s forthcoming LP I Know Nigo is set to be released on March 25. The album is executive produced by Nigo and Pharrell. The album appears to be as grand as the production itself, with acts like A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, and Tyler The Creator, among other names. Listen to ‘Hear Me Clearly’ below and tell us your thoughts on Nigo’s upcoming album.
