It's a Vallejo thing

Decided to investigate whether Big Tymin' and Old School Hyphy are flukes or Nef The Pharaoh had any other good songs prior to 2015. In among the endearing beatjacks with little replay value and the outright duds, there are 2 singles which are very necessary:

Nef The Pharaoh - M.A.C
(From YouTube; 2014)

Much like Husalah's Live Life Illegal, M.A.C exists in an alternate Hyphy continuum where The Federation never existed and so Feelin' Myself became the template record. Essentially, M.A.C is this GIF in audio form, and if you can't describe a Bay Area rap song with a Mac Dre GIF then it shouldn't even qualify as a slap.

Nef The Pharaoh - Bitch I'm From Vallejo
(From YouTube; 2014)

The track where Nef began to stamp his own imprimatur on Mac Dre's former manor, Bitch I'm From Vallejo sees the kid Gassin' like Olivia Luccardi in It Follows: "a sucker tried to say that Vallejo isn't in the Bay, that sound like some faggot shit a n*gga like you would say/these rappers lack what I pack, I immaculately Mac and every song is a slap!" The potshot at Berner during the hook doesn't hurt either - stop letting a local weed dealer with the personality of tupperware have a rap career, Oakland.

Yara is the best character in It Follows.

If they ever do a sequel, she should be the main character.
