Jinbo the Superfreak has a day to go before releasing his 2012 mixtape, ‘KRNB‘, but as a final dose of anticipation, he’s treated the interwebs with one last single for free download via soundcloud. Yay!
The last single before KRNB’s official release, “Nabba” is a response to 2NE1’s “It Hurts.” Capturing the bittersweet emotions of a man who lost someone he believed to be his better half, the ballad illustrates the difficult process of moving forward from the past. Though he clearly found ways not to get attached to a single woman, he also learned methods to lie. The song stands out as an honest ode dedicated for those who have been hurt by love.
In addition to the release of “Nabba”, Rhythmer has released the full mixtape tracklist online. Check it out:

Commentary: Rather than giving the song a change in style, Jinbo captured the essence of the original and smeared it with his own emotional point of view. It’s a lot smoother and darker than 2NE1’s version, and I think he did a really nice job with it.
