Introducing the Dark, Pitched Down Rap of Nashville Duo Moon Unit

Moon Unit is a Nashville-based duo of rapper Jacinto Princep (Jerry Hodak) and producer Nabes (Stephen Barnes). They originally come from Pittsburgh, but their murky, drugged out brand of rap sounds more like Nacho Picasso and some of the other dreary hip-hop of Seattle—they desrcibe it as “after-party slowmo music.” It’s a pretty dead-on description of what to expect. Plenty of hip-hop is meant to start the party, but this is definitely something meant for the late night come-down.

So far we’ve only got two songs, “Slow.” and “CHATT.” Check out both below.
