The ticking beat, rising tides of low end and ghastly vocal samples that The Range (a.k.a. James Hinton) uses in “Nothing Left” arouse a heavy-hearted energy in the Rhode Islander’s production. Although the vocals are hard to place at first, the lyrics (“Til the lights go out, til the smoke clears out”) make the sample easier to identify; they’re lines form Nate Dogg’s contribution to Eminem’s “Till I Collapse,” pitched up and diced to the point that the words are nearly unrecognizable. “Nothing Left” will be officially released in late July, when The Range unleashes his five-track Disk EP via Donky Pitch.
