DOWNLOAD: Shady Nate – Tell Me I Don’t Go
A little while back, two of the Bay Area’s finest, Shady Nate and DJ Fresh, announced the forthcoming release of Still Based On A True Story. The new album, jointly released today between DJ Fresh’s Fresh In The Flesh and Nate’s Shady Nation labels, is a follow-up to the pair’s Based On A True Story album released back in 2007, a project that remains one of the most successful albums for both artists. Still Based On A True Story follows well in the footsteps of its predecessor, with Nate’s quick-fire, street-wise rhymes playing off Fresh’s dynamic, synth- and 808-driven production.
Today, to celebrate the new album, Shady Nate and DJ Fresh are releasing a brand new single, “Tell Me I Don’t Go,” a track that features fellow Bay rapper J. Stalin, along with recent Bay Area Freshmen class inductee Lil’ Rue. “Tell Me I Don’t Go” picks up well where previous singles and videos, including “Real Ni**a Recipe” and “Gimmie Da Loot,” left off, built around boastful shit talk and an equally sinister hook, with Nate rapping, “Running ni**ga’s hoes/ Selling ni**ga’s O’s/ Changing cars like clothes, ni**a, tell me I don’t go.”
