If you recall, Fashawn had the ears and attention of nearly every West Coast rap fan with a pulse when he released Boy Meets World in 2009. In the years since he’s batted away the majority of those who thought he was either taking too long with a proper follow-up by releasing a string of mixtapes and propelling himself even further up the West Coast rap ladder. Now signed to Nas’ Mass Appeal Records, the rapper teams with Dom Kennedy for “Golden State Of Mind”, produced by Boy Meets World favorite, Exile.

Strictly sticking to regionalism and love for everything California, Fashawn and Dom lament on the state that made them while Exile provides a bouncy string of production. You can hear “Golden State Of Mind” below. The Ecology, Fashawn’s sophomore album is set to land next year.
