Ronin, Rio and Nick Mira.

A fast-paced and stylish offering overall, "Mismatch" is raw and catchy, capturing the East Coast rapper's engaging persona and sharp songwriting.
The latest from Philadelphia's NxG, "Mismatch" neatly combines influences from trap and hyperpop, and finds him continuing his run of infectious, forward-thinking releases.
