"Beat That Vest Up" is taken from Nef's upcoming record Mushrooms & Coloring Books, out August 15th via KILFMB / Sick Wid It / EMPIRE. Listen to “Beat That Vest Up” below.
Nef The Pharaoh had a short — but appropriate — statement about “Beat That Vest Up.” “This song was inspired by real life,” he told The FADER via email. “Don’t kill nobody after listening to this song.”
