You might think NËK’s latest EP Exceeded Expectations would be difficult to describe. Not at all, though! I thought it was a pretty easy listen that exceeded my expectations.

His EP, Exceeded Expectations, is an absolute banger. It’s got everything: psychedelic grooves, boom-bap beats, jazz influences and political rap—it really has it all!
The tape illustrates the fact that no matter what happens in your life, you will still be able to grow. It is always important to keep in mind that evolution is a constant process. It is impossible to stay alive if you are stagnant.
A track with this level of clarity and crispness is not overproduced or polished to the point where it becomes dull. Having instrumental breakdowns to break up the songs at the appropriate time adds a great deal of variety to the songs without feeling forced or extraneous.
The music itself is super edgy and political; it’s like studying vibes but with banger beats that’ll keep you dancing no matter what mood you’re in.
