US rapper Ahmad has released ‘Nig Can’t Tell Me Nunt’, the 2nd leak off his long-awaited sophomore album, ‘The Death of Me’ due August 10. Ahmad sounds defiant on this track, rapping in the face of naysayers that labeled him a one-hit-wonder, a slightly different look than  ‘The Death of Me’s first track, the more light-hearted parody “Get Some Money & Go 2 Jail” featuring Crooked I.

“The first track made you laugh; this one will make you cry”, comments the rapper on ‘Nig Can’t Tell Me Nunt’.  “It’s all about human emotions. “We’ve all been in that place where someone is trying to tell you there is something you can’t do. We’re not trying to hear that anymore.” Watch Video

Ahmad Ali Lewis, best known for his seminal 1990’s hit “Back in The Day” is not your typical story of hip-hop success. Raised in South Central Los Angeles, Ahmad secured his first recording contract while still a senior in high school, and promptly earned a platinum plaque and a Top 40 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 with the nostalgic childhood anthem “Back in the Day.”

Ahmad later formed the hip-hop fusion band 4th Avenue Jones, which garnered a cult following on the West Coast and toured extensively in Europe. Ahmad declares, “My band allowed me room to experiment as a writer and as an emcee; I’m grateful.”

Fast-forward 10 years, and after a brief hiatus from rap to focus on academia, Ahmad graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Sociology. Says Ahmad, “I wanted to know what I should have known.” Ahmad was accepted to Stanford after graduating valedictorian from Long Beach City College and receiving the Jack Kent Cooke Sponsorship, the largest private scholarship for two-year college transfer students in the country. His transition from rapper to scholar didn’t go unnoticed; his story was featured in XXL magazine, and on the front-page of the Los Angeles Times.

An accomplished songwriter, Ahmad penned the soul ballad “Mistreating Me” on Leela James’ debut LP A Change Is Gonna Come. “Back in the Day” has been interpolated by Platinum selling artists such as The Dream & Mariah Carey on “Candy Bling” and by Travie McCoy on “Akidagain,” a song featured on his new solo album Lazarus.

Since graduating in June, Ahmad has been readying his long-anticipated sophomore solo album, The Death of Me, featuring guest appearances by Crooked I of the Shady Records group Slaughterhouse, and West Coast icons Living Legends. Ahmad has toured extensively as a solo artist, and as a member of 4th Avenue Jones, visiting such places as the Netherlands, the U.K., Canada, Sweden, Denmark, and the southern African nation of Zimbabwe

The Death of Me is set for release on August 10 and will be the first project for Ahmad’s company WeCLAP (We Change Lives, Attitudes & Perceptions).
