Intro­du­cing 15-year-old rap prodigy, Nino SLG, who lands with his debut pro­ject entitled “State Of Mind” through Mix­tape Mad­ness.  Well on the way to ful­filling a great music­al des­tiny, the rap­per has cur­ated a selec­tion of tracks that, com­bined, will mark an undeni­able entry to the UK rap land­scape. Stretched across __ cuts, the musi­cian show­cases his tal­ents on the piano and his poet­ic tend­en­cies. Lead­ing the pro­ject’s roll out is the single, “Pris­ons Walls” which sets the tone and places Nino’s ‘wise before his years’ nature on dis­play through a slew of intro­spect­ive lines.

The young star has shown an apt­ness for music from the tender age of 11, here his interest was sparked through music les­sons in school. Once nur­tured he began to play the piano, a skill that has car­ried him through today. Along­side a love for poetry that saw him go on to rep­res­ent his bor­ough and win sev­er­al com­pet­i­tions in sec­ond­ary school, speak­ing on this Nino SLG said: “This has most def­in­itely aided my music career as it allows me to con­vey much more emo­tions to my artistry than a typ­ic­al rap­per may bring.”

“State Of Mind” does exactly what the title says, it shows the many dimen­sions of Nino’s char­ac­ter. Shar­ing his thoughts on the pro­ject:

The EP reflects my emo­tion­al state while mak­ing cer­tain songs, wheth­er that’s my hap­pi­ness in songs like “Lit Now” or my anger and sad­ness in an inter­lude like “Rolling Deep”. On the day of the EP release, a single called “Lon­don State of Mind (L.S.O.M)” will be released to the pub­lic also. I feel as though this  single will allow Lon­don­ers to relate to the exper­i­ences, wor­ries and thoughts that I exper­i­ence whilst liv­ing in my area.
