In growing anticipation of the Nico the Beast/ Vanderslice True to Form EP dropping May 27th, we present Lost Sessions Volume 1. Comprised of five unreleased tracks from his original rendition of 2008's Dinner is Served mixtape, Nico the Beast goes in over a handful of classic beats, including Common's "The Game" and Outkast's "2DopeBoyzinaCadillac".
