Over the course of a dozen years in the game, Nelly has gone through plenty of growth and change as well as myriad career ups and downs, but at least two things have remained constant: his down-South pride and his stylish swagger. On the lead single off his next mixtape, the St. Louis repper reminds listeners that he is now and ever shall be C-N-F; that is, “Country n**ga fly.” Jason “JP” Perry and TEC Beatz provide an instrumental that exemplifies the titular qualities, layering scintillating synth arpeggios over a trunk-rattling kick as the artist touts his fidelity to his roots. Notably, he one-ups his regionmates by claiming not that he owns a flashy whip, but that he is one: “Paint drippin’ wet, my inside drippin’ leather” For this fly country anthem and much more, check out Scorpio Season when it hits the ‘net November 2. Additionally, watch out pages for the latest on yet-unscheduled studio album M.O., featuring hit lead single Marry-Go-Round.
