Nacrobats Is truly what Chicago underground Hip-Hop in the 90’s was about dope beats, bars, and sounding unique. Following in the footsteps of Common, All Natural and The Molemen. The Nacrobats became an institution for upcoming rappers, producers, dancers, artist, and party promoters of the time. Their DIY aesthetic and over 40+ releases (solo and as a collective) have laid the ground work for many artists there today. This compilation scratches the surface of some of the best music they recorded over the First 10 years or so. Crowd favorites and Cult classics Like Century 21, Paperz, Be like you, and Rock the world are all included. Some of the standout members featured on this compilation are Open Mike Eagle, Psalm One, Thaione Davis, Pugs Atomz, Infinito 2017, and Kenny Keyz. “Nacrobats was the precursor to today’s Chicago crews like Save Money (Vic Mensa/ Chance the Rapper) and Pivot Gang.(Saba)..in terms of being dedicated to the culture while progressing it. “ #culturepower45 #limitededition all art by Pugslee Atomz (limited bonus items for a limited time only) #nacrobats
