iTunes Review

Big in the Bay if relatively unknown elsewhere, Shady Nate is part of Oakland's Livewire collective alongside J Stalin, Lil Blood, Stevie Joe, Jay Jonah, Philthy Rich, and others. A local superstar in the post-hyphy era, he's released a wealth of material since 2007, including Demolition Men, The Bo-Fessional, and Da Heavy Hitters. With Still Based on a True Story, he gives us a rare proper solo album (as opposed to mixtapes and collabo projects). It features 14 tracks loaded with street-savvy, crime-riddled, and baller-centric lyricism set to energetic, synth-laden '80s-inspired production. Ideal for rocking at the sideshow, the beats here bang relentlessly. The rhymes are consistently clever, funny, and over-the-top. Standout joints include "Real Nigga Recipe," "Climbing to the Top," "Gimme the Loot" featuring HD, and "That Good Life" with Chris the 5th.
