Flushing has already produced some outstanding rappers, and Nut-Rageous continues that tradition with this entertaining collection of some of his vinyl releases and some new tracks. A lot of his tracks remind me of dope mid-90s indy stuff, but not on some throwback tip. Nut adds his own twist to all the usual topics – broads, parties and wack rappers – but doesn’t sound like everyone else out there right now. That’s probably because he was making records since back then anyway.

“Best In This Profession” and “They Wanna Know” are two of the standouts, combining dope beats with quality vocal work, but almost every track is worthy of inclusion here. “Rap Issues” is along the same lines of “Message From Poet” in that Nut offers commentary on the rap game, while “Play The Field” is a catchy declaration to the dames sporting a 1940’s style hook. Guest spots are also a step above the usual suspects, as Dana Dane, Craig G and the late, great K.L. providing superior assists.

Despite being labeled a mixtape, Mixed Nuts qualifies as a proper street album, and has managed to stay in rotation in the ride for a while thanks to it’s combination of winning beats and the fact that Nut-Rageous is good value whenever he goes in, in much the same way that early Beatnuts managed to be constantly entertaining regardless. Not only that, but dude is still releasing vinyl! Now that’s gully.

He sounds like a guy who should be on an anonymous late-era Fondle Em record. Is he a lost member of Cashless Society?
