Nef The Pharaoh Drops A New, Highly Relatable Track: "BMD" (for "Baby Mama Drama")

It appears as if E-40 protege, Nef The Pharaoh, has a knack for making relatable songs. First, we got "Big Tymin'," a playful, braggadocio-heavy song about, well, being the shit, and then we got "Big Chang Chang," the lead single off his second EP, Neffy Got Wings, which is also about being the shit. Okay, so maybe his lyrics aren't that deep — and he definitely has a penchant for boastfulness — but at least now the 21-year-old Vallejo rapper is switching it up with his newest release, "BMD."

"BMD" stands for "Baby Mama Drama" and there's no denying that it's not a relatable topic. Over a buzzy, piano-laced produced by Cardo, Nef dishes on the beef he has going on with his baby mama, who, though not stated in the song, is definitely no longer dating Nef. The rapper talks about how she claims he doesn't support his son and how she disses him and then looks for sympathy. Perhaps the best line is when he states, "I never should let this alien set foot in my space ship." 

Like all of Nef's songs, this is a bouncy, upbeat track that, despite the serious subject matter, could easily be swapped into a DJ's playlist without ruining the mood of the crowd.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
