Nef the Pharaoh ft. Cuban Doll, ALLBLACK – 86
It may be a bit economically reckless, but if nothing else you’ve got to respect the sheer gall of Nef’s blatant rebuke of one of his primary sources of income; “Fuck them stupid ass casinos, dumb ass clubs.” In essence, he isn’t happy with these places of commerce that serve as his sources of income because they’ll frequently throw him out for acting TOO much of a fool or for bringing weapons in.
I love the bite in Nef’s voice when he says, “Dropped a 4 in my Jones like I’m Donnell”
But by far my favorite part is when he declares, “I saw you tuck your chains in when we were in the club, you were glad I got kicked out, the life of a scrub.” I love how he’s almost becoming this omniscient narrator here and narrating the guy’s life; the life of a scrub as his voice shifts to a mix of disdain and almost pity for the said scrub.
We always welcome ALLBLACK features here and the ALLBLACK verse was a nice added bonus. The Nef/ALLBLACK collaborations have bore some very tasty fruit before, even if unfortunately Greedo isn’t part of it this time. I’ve been listening to a bunch of Nef all summer like his Porter 2 Grape collaboration with Greedo and going back to some of his older stuff and loosies, so it was a pleasant surprise to see he has his new album ‘The Big Chang Theory’ out and get to listen to it over the weekend.
