NiNE8 collective have shared "SHEDONTEVENKNOW" as the second taster of their forthcoming mixtape No Smoke Vol.2.

"SHEDONTEVENKNOW" lands after last month's lead track "079EIGHT", which will also feature on their No Smoke Vol.2 mixtape.

Their latest release features contributions from Lava La Rue, Lorenzorsv and Bone Slim.

Lorenzorsv says the new song is "about being in a relationship and suffering from problems of your own; however you feel like you’re not able to speak on them due to your other half always speaking about theirs. The beat of the song came about by accident - Mac was looking for a specific sample to use on another track when he ended up playing the Mandolin sample that you hear at the start of the song and throughout. I told him to save that for another beat as I pictured a finished song in my head, and that ended up being "SHEDONTEVENKNOW". The song gives me a nostalgic feel as it almost reminds me of 808s & Heartbreak-era Kanye, which funny enough was an album that I overplayed when I was younger."

NiNE8 collective's "SHEDONTEVENKNOW" single is out now. Their No Smoke Vol.2 mixtape lands 3 September.
