Nef The Pharaoh Announces Mushrooms & Coloring Books Album, Featuring Tyga, ALLBLACK, Sada Baby & More, Arriving 8/12 via Sick Wid It Records / EMPIRE.
One of the most verbally dexterous emcees from any region, Nef The Pharaoh is the standard-bearer for the new wave of Bay Area rap. Preparing a new showcase for his party-starting and psychedelic brand of regional rap, Nef announces “Mushrooms & Coloring Books,” his upcoming album.
Spanning 16 tracks, the project builds on the foundation of Bay Area rap music, spicing it up with a different sonic element on each summer-ready track. Running the gamut from mob music to electro-funk to smooth jazz to Ibiza-friendly dance-rap, Mushrooms & Coloring Books proves Nef’s endless adaptability, weaving his malleable flow between hits of acid bass, breaking into nursery rhyme patter, and even flashing a skill with melody when the occasion calls.
Featuring appearances from Tyga, Sada Baby, ALLBLACK, Slimmy B of SOB x RBE, Rexx Life Raj, ShooterGang Kony, LOE Gino, and Scando The Darklord, and with production from Brodinski along with Bay Area mainstays like Djfresh and DTB, Mushrooms & Coloring Books releases on August 12th via Sick Wid It Records/EMPIRE.
Along with the announcement of the album, Nef shares “High Voltage,” a simmering and sultry slapper. With DTB providing a minimalist beat marked by echoing Rhodes, sunbursts of bells, rumbling bass, and snapping snares, “High Voltage” an anthem for late night trysts, as Nef unleashes a series of clever, playalistic bars: “Gotta have Guala to talk money/B*tch I look fly, Giuseppe’s make me walk funny/I done multiplied my cash, teacher said I’d be a dummy/Now I got big-faced hunnids and little-faced hunnids.”
The new single boasts a snarling appearance from Tyga, who lends his signature SoCal slickness to the proceedings. “High Voltage” is the second release from the upcoming album, following the hyper-local “South Vallejo.”
