Fashawn's taken his sweet time putting together a follow-up to 2009 debut full-length Boy Meets World, but his sophomore album is finally on the horizon. Today, we get our first taste of the set in the form of lead single Golden State of Mind. Exile, Fash's constant collaborator on his freshman set, reprises his role behind the boards, crafting a breezy, sun-kissed groove to accompany the artist as he spits about the ups and downs of life on the West Coast. Leimert Park representative Dom Kennedy assists on the guest tip. If this cut's whet your appetite for more, you can keep your browsers locked for more fresh singles leading up to the 2015 release of The Ecology, Fashawn's first release via Mass Appeal. Fans will also be able to cop Golden State as part of the label's Mass Appeal Vol. 1 compilation, scheduled to drop “soon.”
