Featuring an appearance from Dej Loaf, who contributes a delicate and melodic opening verse, the HotNewHipHop-premiered “
After building up a massive following on the West Coast with a series of popular mixtapes, three acclaimed EPs, and several radio singles, the KILFMB chief is ready to release The Big Chang Theory, his upcoming debut studio album. Demonstrating the maturity and wisdom that comes from experience as a leader in the rap game, The Big Chang Theory is a wide-ranging and self-assured project. Showing off his skills over glistening Bay Area beats, Nef flexes on his success, stunts on lesser emcees, and brags about his rhyming prowess, but also finds the time to reflect on his past, to ruminate on social issues such as police violence, and ponder the future of his young daughter. Featuring appearances from Dej Loaf, OMB Peezy, ALLBLACK, Cuban Doll, and more, The Big Chang Theory arrives on August 10th via KILFMB / Sick Wid It / EMPIRE.
Breaking through with his self-titled 2015 EP and its hit single “Big Tymin‘,” the 23-year-old Nef The Pharaoh quickly established himself as one of the most unique and popular emcees in the Bay. Signed to E-40’s Sick Wid It Records, the charismatic emcee is a fixture on regional radio, releasing an acclaimed collaborative EP with Cardo Got Wingz (Kendrick Lamar, Drake) in 2016 and hitting in 2017 with “Bling Blaow,” which featured Slimmy B of SOB x RBE. Earlier this month, Nef shared Porter2Grape, an action-packed 5-track collaborative EP with L.A. rapper 03 Greedo. Featuring appearances from ALLBLACK and singer Chris O’Bannon, the blistering EP, featuring the Complex-premiered single “Ball Out,” is currently available for stream and purchase via EMPIRE.
