Ray West x OC - YMI

Ray West

Listen: no matter how bad you want it, producer Ray West and veteran emcee OC‘s new collaborative album won’t be out until next Tuesday… sorry! Here’s what I can do for you, though: on Monday (January 20) The DJBooth will have a full stream of Ray’s Cafe exclusively for your earholes. To sweeten the deal, how about we premiere standout cut YMI? Sound good? Of course it does, because whenever someone samples Electric Light Orchestra, the result is a stellar jam. Ray West takes Wishing and sprawls it out over a powerful bassline with some crisp drums. OC (of D.I.T.C.) handles mic duties, lacing West’s exquisite boardwork with his emphatic, powerful flow. His inspirational bars will have you back on your feet in no time. Be sure to visit the Booth next Monday for our stream of the album!
