By 8 I was great because I was sick when I was 6

Came to Nef The Pharaoh's EP on the hunt for slap tremendo in the vein of 2 Phones, left with the highlight of the previously unheard songs being some hazy sunkissed love letter to his favourite folk that's like Wiz Khafila's Kush & OJ if the O had stood for Off The Rictor and the J had stood for J-Diggs, or what a great Berner solo song might sound like if Berner weren't an earnest lump with no emotional palette beyond "I LOVE SMOKIN' WEED AND SELLIN WEED TO THE RAPPERS WHOM I'M TRYING TO BEFRIEND!" Neffy got range.

"Ya baby brother really ain't a baby no mo'
I had a baby and I can't buy liquor at the sto'"

"Michael Jackson" is the one

That's a glorified advert for them ugly ass Giuseppe Zanotti high-tops in the guise of a song about a serial nonce but, yeah, it's insanely catchy.

So I guess this is the local Vallejo song Nef talks about K,Jewelz producing back in the Hyphy era - Do My Dance by Drama ft. Gutta Boy.

I've never heard that album beyond the singles so I dunno.
