MP3: Shady Nate – “Stupid Leanin” Feat. Mista F.A.B. & Mony Shady Nate Features Mistah F.A.B. And Mony On Track from Gasman Unleashed
The epic attitude suggested by the title of Shady Nate’s new album, Gasman Unleashed, comes to the surface with the track “Stupid Leanin’,” featuring Mistah F.A.B. and Mony. The track has a straight, catchy drumbeat that immediately establishes the song’s appeal and is paired with a powerful, driving synthesizer loop to create a larger-than-life, indomitable quality within the track. The first verse opens up with, “Purple smoke, thick, hot, risin’, need a gas mask.” This sets up the lyrical mood for the rest of the song over which the three emcees spit their own verses. The track serves as Shady Nate’s claim as one of the Bay Area’s future hip-hop luminaries. His newest album, Gasman Unleashed, is available now via Clear Label Records.
Shady Nate is no stranger to struggle and adversity. Born and raised in West Oakland’s Acorn housing projects, Shady Nate learned from a young age to hustle and grind to get anywhere. His rapping career began at the age of five when he started writing his thoughts and daily experiences in a journal. These entries gradually developed into the lyrics that he spits today. In 2004 Shady Nate launched Livewire Records and subsequently recorded and released a full-length mixtape with Nas’ tour DJ, Oakland native DJ Fresh. The buzz only got bigger when Nate released The Bofessional, which is regarded as his best mixtape to date. Riding high on his growing popularity, Shady Nate released The Gasman Unleashed in June 2009, and the album was quickly dubbed a west coast classic. The Gasman Unleashed is available now via Clear Label Records.
