PREMIERE: Nacho Picasso is Rap’s ‘AntiHero’ That We Deserve on New Album

One of the better superhero movies that came out this year was Deadpool. Not only was the promotion for the film on point, but the concept of the antihero being so damn entertaining drew in old and new fans to the theaters by the droves. Those fans will soon find a musical equivalent in Nacho Picasso.

The California emcee who grew up in Seattle teamed up with Harry Fraud and Blvck Lvgoon for his new project that sums up his twisted journey to where he is today. He has no sidekicks (read: guest features) and isn’t afraid to share some of his darkest, revealing thoughts from his mind. One thing’s for certain: he’s really into the female anatomy. A lot.

Nacho had this to say about the project to us via email:

“I’ve kinda always been regarded as a villain, but I’ve evolved a lot since my early days, and I understand the universe way more now than I did when I first got in the game. AntiHero represents that. Songs like ‘Lizard King Jr’ show my weird, paranoid conspiracy theorist side while displaying my unorthodox wordplay and drugged out sexcapades. ‘Grunge’ is close to my lil heart! I rarely do emo songs cause I’m lightskint and emo enough but this one reflects on my current struggles with who I am, while paying homage to my city. ‘Voices In My Head,’ is my Nacho Kubrick shit…My Edgar Allen ‘Poe-up!’ This is a scary story I made up in my head on some American Psycho/The Shining shit!” The AntiHero is the ‘rebirth of Nacho.'”

You can watch the video for “Bloody Tissues” HERE. You can also watch two episodes of a documentary series on the man below.
