ItsNate – Never Average Talking Excellent [Mixtape] | Stream + Free Download

ItsNate, the burgeoning 23 year old rapper from North London, is at it again and this go-around he graces us with a his third mixtape, Never Average Talking Excellent.

The Nigerian/Cameroonian spitter has made consistent strides solidifying his presence within the transforming soundscape of British Hip Hop. With spins from Giles Peterson and a recent feature by i-D magazine it’s quite obvious that slowly but surely, momentum is picking up.

He’s opened for the likes of Mac Miller and Stalley, along with his fellow boundary-pushers Ash Catchem and Piff Gang, and on this new project Nate maintains the standard of quality that piqued our interests back when it all began with his first mixtape, Never Asking Taking Everything.

Producers JD Reid, Klimeks, Sumgii, Kxngs, Lz and Crankz as well as vocalist Yordanos join the Suede Jones lyricist on his third outing which sees the rapper explore life experiences “such as the 9-5 work grind, issues with family and friends, partying and fobbing off the right amount of groupies while still remaining creative, productive & optimistic.”

Standout tracks include the initial single ‘Where She Learnt That At [WSLTA]‘, ‘? You Came For’, ‘Windy’ and ‘Schemin’. Never Average embodies a forthrightness that’s both entertaining and quintessentially British, as he skirts between aspiration-filled bars to cheekier panache-injected verses directed at the ladies. Check the PHD-LDN directed visuals for ‘WSLTA’ below.

Though melancholic and even jejune at times, ItsNate manages to bring the vibes once again with chilled, laid-back tracks, witty wordplay glazed in his distinctive style.
