Following an extensive tour alongside 21 Savage that concluded earlier this month, Young Nudy is back to officially release his Faded In The Booth mixtape. The tape, which was previously only available on SoundCloud and mixtape hosting sites, arrives via Young Nudy, LLC/Same Plate/RCA Records and is now available on all major streaming services. Faded In The Booth, which was originally released ahead of Nudy’s collaborative tape with Pi’erre Bourne, Sli’merre, to feed the streets, quickly became a fan favourite. Requests for the tape to receive an official release have been constant since the project hit the internet. To accompany the release, Nudy is also sharing a video for one of the project’s standout tracks ‘Keep It 100’.
The mixtape is Nudy’s latest release since his joint album with Pierre Bourne Sli’merre, which was released to critical acclaim, with Pitchfork writing, “In an era when so many rappers just show up and are suddenly stars, Nudy’s rise over the last four years has been refreshingly organic.” Nudy sat down with The FADER for a video interview that touches on everything from how him and Pi’erre first started working together, staying out of trouble with the law, and his unreleased but highly hyped song with Playboi Carti, ‘Pissy Pamper’. Watch ‘Keep It 100’ and hear the full Faded In The Booth mixtape below.
