Maino‘s most recent features, the sorta-tacky Tiger and the lukewarmly (yes, according to my spell-checker, that’s actually a word) received Bring It Back DJ didn’t perform up to spec, but that hasn’t discouraged the Brooklyn thug one bit. Today, he’s back with Don’t Say Nothing, a cut that he’s hoping will leave his haters lost for words. Basing his boardwork around a sample from Shawty Lo‘s Dey Know (Remix), Mistah Raja mixes strings, synths and bass-booming percussion as Maino reminds us what a crazy M.F.-er he is. Dirty Money member Kalenna steps up to the mic to vouch for the headliner’s claims of insanity, contributing a minimal but memorable hook. So, readers, does this track leave you speechless – and, if so, is that good speechless or bad speechless? If it’s the former, stay tuned; the artist’s sophomore set , Day After Tomorrow, has yet to receive a drop date from the label brass, but we’ll keep you posted.
