The 4 track EP starts with “Positive Energy” where MCskill flexes his lyrical muscle over a soul-tinged boom-bap beat that helps open up the project. The second track, “Fantasy Rap”, has a more solemn feel but MCskill goes for a more out the box topic as he delivers outlandish verbal illustrations. On “From The Ground Up”, the duo go back to the boom-bap essence with a dark flute-like sample and hard-hitting drums plus an energetic M.O.P. sample.
The final track, “Dreams”, closes up the project on a positive note as MCskill urges the listeners to go out and work for his or her dream regardless of the obstacles they might face.
NUCLEUS Vol. 1 is quite short but it’s definitely worth the listen as MCskill ThaPreacha comes through with engaging concepts over Teck-Zilla’s solid production.
