Nef The Pharaoh
By Jack Barnes
Anybody who knows Nef the Pharaoh knows how much he, like most of his generation, reveres Cash Money Records. His biggest single to date, “Big Tymin,” with nearly 8M Spotify listens and nearly 9M YouTube views, is an homage the Big Tymers. In “Put You On,” a video premiered today by Billboard, Nef partners with one of his biggest inspirations, Juvenile. Filmed at the fifth annual Hiero Day festival in Oakland, California, the two trade raspy-voiced verses about staying loyal to your homies, while Nef brings the song together with a harmonic chorus. “Put You On” is the first single from Nef’s upcoming project. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Earlier this summer Nef released Fresh Outta Space 3, an album as sonically diverse and funky as the Bay Area itself. “Everything Big,” the project’s P-Lo-produced and FADER-premiered first single and a spiritual successor to “Big Tymin’,” is a valedictory track about Nef’s ability to provide for himself and his family and live a life of luxury at the same time. Dumb Life, the second single, is a hyphy anthem, the Architekz-produced “Do Ya Thang” is an inspirational track inspired by 2Pac’s “Keep Ya Head Up,” while the Snoop Dogg-featuring “Smoke Suffa” is the ultimate song for the heads and “ATM” is a strip club anthem. Featuring a spoken-word introduction from Sway of Shade 45‘s Sway in the Morning and an emotional closing track dedicated to Nef’s infant son, Fresh Outta Space 3 suits all moods
Signed to E-40‘s Sick Wid It Records, Nef The Pharaoh delivered his debut retail release, a self-titled EP, in November 2015 to high critical praise and commercial success for its single “Big Tymin’.” Nef followed his breakthrough project by joining producer Cardo for Neffy Got Wings, a collaborative EP which released in January. In the ensuing months, Nef kept a high profile as a featured artist, appearing with D.R.A.M. on E-40’s “Slappin’“ which has nearly 600,000 views on YouTube, interpolating Shaggy’s immortal “It Wasn’t Me” on “H.B.I.C.” from Bay Area producer Juneonnabeat‘s solo album, joining fellow rising star Rexx Life Raj for “Moxie Java,” and teaming with Casey Veggies for the DJ Mustard-produced “Stupidly Crazy,” stealing the spotlight from Future on the highlight from DJ Esco‘s E.T.: The Esco-Terrestrial. With Fresh Outta Space 3, Nef cements a successful 2016 and paves the way for his debut official release, coming soon.
