“Nef the Pharaoh runs neck-and-neck with Kodak Black as the most promising up-and-coming rapper who can’t yet rent a car.” SPIN

The Song:

Few rappers in the game today have the freewheeling, fun-loving vibe of Nef The Pharaoh. Premiered by Billboard, Nef returns with “Back Out,” a jam for the dancefloor and the bedroom. Featuring an exceptionally risqué verse from Ty Dolla $ign, “Back Out” is a lustful meditation from Big Chang Chang over reverb-soaked bells and whistling woodwinds: “I can tell by the look in your eyes babe / you ain’t had a real n*gga in your life aye.” Produced by Architekz, “Back Out” is the second single from The Chang Project, releasing April 28th.

“This is just a fun song for the ladies. I’m more vulgar than Ty so with him on the song, it makes it less offensive, haha. We’ve known each other since my song ‘Big Tymin’ so when I told him I needed him on it, he said to send it over and when he sent back the track, I knew it was a hit,” Nef explains on working with Ty Dolla $ign. “When Architekz played me the beat, I started with the chorus, ‘I got something to blow your back out’ and it just sounded like a jingle to me. And then I built the song around that hook.”

A mischievous post-hyphy superstar with a king-sized personality, Nef The Pharaoh is leading the new wave of Bay Area rap stars. Following a radio smash in 2015’s “Big Tymin’,” his two acclaimed 2016 mixtapes, Neffy Got Wings, a full-length collab with “That Part” producer Cardo, and Fresh Outta Space 3, and a world tour supporting G-Eazy, Nef is ready to transition from regional stardom to national recognition. Crafting a high-def and refined sound rooted in the traditional sounds of San Francisco and Oakland, Nef announced his first project of 2017, The Chang Project, last week with the release of “Spice,” which featured SOB x RBE‘s Yhung T.O. Featuring appearances from Ty Dolla $ign, Larry June, SOB x RBE, Caleborate, OMB Peezy, Jay Ant, and others, but anchored by Nef’s ineffable energy and personality, The Chang Project is slated to release next Friday, April 28th.
