St. Louis rapper Nando STL released his new single “Weakdays” today via Nappy Boy Entertainment. The Pdub-produced track is found on Y.O.T.A, Nando’s first project with Nappy Boy set for release in May. “Weakdays” is available everywhere now, watch the video above.
With lyrics like “Imma throw a smile on and crack jokes all the way home, and then I’ll tuck my kids in and go and cry alone…” Nando shares thought-filled, internal commentary on his struggle with depression while faking happiness as he navigates life’s challenges. He’s joined by his kids in the introspective visual, also released today. “Weakdays” is the follow-up to lead single “Loud”, and the titular track “Y.O.T.A” featuring T-Pain and Young Cash, all found on the forthcoming project.
Alongside his new music, Nando has been on tour with Nappy Boy Entertainment label-head, Tpain, supporting select dates across his nationwide run including Salisbury, MD on April 28th, Oneonta, NY on the 29th, with additional ongoing (unannounced) dates through mid-July.
With Y.O.TA (meaning Year of The Ape), Nando is cementing his spot among hip-hop’s new regime of newcomers. “This year I wanted to do something totally different than what I’ve ever done as an artist,” said NandoSTL. With his new label home and forthcoming body of work, Nando STL is poised to be a 2023 ‘Artist To Watch’.
