Pacman da Gunman of Nipsey Hussle’s All Money In No Money Out Records is an artist that has been a cornerstone of LA’s recent wave of outstanding talent. Today he arrives with his ‘Less Is More’ EP, filled with blockbuster features as well as solo tracks that show Pacman’s capabilities as an emcee continuing to rise through the ranks. Fresh off releasing club ready street bangers like “One Piece” Ft. Wale and “Did That” Ft. Icewear Vezzo, Pacman’s 8 track project is a short but heavy collection of records including the triumphant “Appealin” and the “Better Know” Remix featuring Blac Youngsta.
The project’s first single was a West Coast classic, the Mike & Keyz produced “Zero Tolerance”, featuring Nipsey Hussle and Mozzy. Coming up with Nipsey, Pacman learned the complicated ins and outs of the industry early on. Pacman grew up in the Crenshaw district of Los Angeles, the same neighbourhood as Nipsey. Their upbringing is what brought them together and Pac looks to continue instilling his values through his music. Pacman’s lead single “Never Gon Change” from his 2019 album ‘No Guts No Glory’ featured Nipsey, and was released one day before Nipsey’s fatal shooting. The music video was the last post on Nipsey’s instagram at the time of his passing which put a new spotlight on Pacman. His popularity has been growing rapidly since then as many begin to see what Nipsey saw in Pacman.
“I feel like the best music comes from experience,” Pacman said in an interview with Billboard. It’s that mantra that has allowed Pacman to become your favorite rapper’s rapper. Having an independent hustle, Pacman seeks his own collaborations and has been able to connect with artists of all sizes from all cities. ‘Less Is More’ is another incredible addition to a discography that’s not to be slept on. The project is available everywhere now via All Money In and Opposition.
