Nessly’s EP “Standing On Satan’s Chest” has *everything* (SNL’s Stefon voice): flashy, flex-heavy but surprisingly romantic lyricism, guest appearances from Killy and Yung Bans, a Lil Yachty verse that shouts out Ariana Grande, Take A Daytrip production, and a sample from Jim Jones’ “We Fly High.” Nessly doesn’t stop at star-studded features and production, he leans into vulnerability and tackles feelings of loneliness and heartbreak on tracks like, “Ball On You,” and “Love You More.” He’s never been shy about dealing with his demons, but on Standing On Satan’s Chest he’s determined to conquer them too.
Nessly’s penchant for melody fits well within the ATL trap scene, but he brings his own edge to the table. Leaning into his formidable strengths, namely his mutated vocal patter and his flashy, flex-heavy, and surprisingly sweet lyricism, Nessly’s recently announced Standing On Satan’s Chest finds him delving deeper into his sonic world. The EP is packed with headphone-ready instrumentals from the likes of Gold Soul, Take A Daytrip, and more. Standing On Satan’s Chest is a step forward from Wildflower, the red-dreaded rapper’s successful 2018 release. Featuring appearances from Killy and Yung Bans, who appear on the recent single “Freezing Cold,” as well as guest spots from Lil Yachty, Lil Keed, and 6Dogs. Stream below!
