AUDIO: Najee the 1 “Pain”

Najee the 1 documents his rise in the new track “Pain.”

Mass Appeal is proud to present the premiere of newcomer Najee The 1‘s “Pain” produced by frequent collaborator, DB2.

No, Najee is not the smooth jazz saxophonist and flautist but you may have seen him in the New York Times reppin’ for Converse’s Rubber Tracks studio or heard his music on one of The Fader’s mixes. If you really know your stuff you might remember him from HBO’s Def Poetry Jam where he cut his teeth as a spoken word poet .

“Pain” finds the Bronx-borough resident rapping about him going from the gutter to the good or least better life against all odds. Check out the song above and tell us what you think of it in the comment section below.
