Nef the Pharoah with Rae Rock, Von Vatton, Peacoat Gang, Dane 0$even, Skinny Pete, CZ
On Saturday, March 4, In2Win Entertainment presents The Put You On Tour starring Nef The Pharaoh and Rae Rock with special guests Von Vatton, Peacoat Gang, Dane 0$even, Skinny Pete and CZ.
Back in the 1960’s there was a article in Mad Magazine that read, “A famous teenage archaeologist recently stated, ‘We can learn a lot from the Pharaohs, but we can learn even more from Sam the Sham.”
That’s fifty-year-old news. Today, it’s Nef the Pharaoh who gives us the word, and that’s no wooly bully.
Nef the Pharaoh was born January 11, 1995 and went to high school in Sacramento, California. In 2014 he had a "local hit" with the single "Bitch I'm From Vallejo”. Nef the Pharaoh was subsequently featured on E-40's Sharp On All 4 Corners album. Nef’s 2015 single "I'm From Vallejo" was remixed with features from E-40 and Willie Joe.
In July 2015 Nef the Pharaoh released his track "Big Tymin’”, which has lyrics "honoring Birdman and Mannie Fresh" of Cash Money.
"Nef's other records suggest a more pertinent rap influence is the languid precision of Mac Dre — while the mood has the reassuring warmth of a springtime sunbeam,” notes Pitchfork Media. “Built on the slumping Bay Area rhythmic template popularized by DJ Mustard, Nef dodges the derivative; as a rapper, he lets the energy lead and the bars follow, boasting and flexing with the kinds of memorable banalities... that make up some of hip-hop's best yet least-celebrated moments. Everything about the record suggests tossed-off effervescence, its formal components underlining its unpretentious messaging."
The music websites Noisey and Thizzler on the Roof included "Big Tymin'" on their On the Roof Vol. 2: Mob Forever in May 2015.
After "Big Tymin" had become known regionally, Nef the Pharaoh signed with E-40's Sick Wid It label and they re-released the track. His self-titled debut EP was released on Sick Wid It on November 6, 2015. He continues working on his debut album, My Great Impression.
