A dynamic track from Chicago legend NIZM and producer TJIB, taken from their upcoming album A Rapper and a Drummer II, the second installment of their simultaneous return to and evolution beyond the vintage boom-bap sound, fully armed with heavily laced lines and uncompromising breakbeats and dangerous samples.
"P.T.S.D" (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), is NIZM and TJIB's contribution to a discussion that doesn't occur enough in the fabric of United States discourse. Beyond simply addressing how this psychological calamity riddles through the existences of war veterans, NIZM in rare form story mode benefiting from shadows cast by Organized Konfusion's sophomore effort articulates that P.T.S.D. inserts its evil into the consciousnesses of all walks of life and every social stratification imaginable. TJIB complements the arrangement perfectly with percussion mirroring military drums and a pensive and nearly haunting vocal loop. In a word, you need this in your ears. Check out NIZM discography on ITunes after you start with this masterful selection from the upcoming A Rapper and a Drummer II. Make SURE to grab this throwback forward when it is released!
