Nomad hails from Sumter, SC, nationally recognized as one of the most dangerous cities—hence his “Murk City” moniker. Well-versed in mixtape etiquette (he’s released five before his full-length Trap Bible), the album flows from track to skit to track, displaying a diverse range of excellently produced radio-ready trap songs. On “Make It Home,” Nomad enlists Movie 215 to provide a boisterous counterbalance to Nomad’s lighter, humorous presence: “We don’t eat the same/... See I want Filet Mignon/ You want a Fish Fillet.” The album closes with “Preach,” driven by a repeating piano bass line and sub-synths, easily setting a scene in a movie where something is about to go down at Nomad’s trap house.
