Young Scolla - Get By

Escaping Reality

After hearing Young Scolla‘s Booth debut, If I Was With You (featured back in summer ‘09), readers could be forgiven for assuming that the Detroit up-and-comer was an R&B singer who could rap but, in reality, he’s more of an emcee with a damned good singing voice – which is kind of like arguing over whether a zebra is black with white stripes or white with black stripes. In any case, those who want to hear Scolla on a pure hip-hop track need look no further than Get By, the first leak off his latest EP. Here, Rhode Island native Tecknowledgy serves up a laid-back, soul-sampled instrumental as the emcee delivers his motivational verses, mixing reflections on the artistic grind with mellow braggadocio and concluding, “In due time I’ll get mine for real; as long as I grind till the casket drops I’m gonna be big time.” Sure to be a hit among listeners with a taste for retro-informed grooves and positive-minded rhymes, Get By can be found on Scolla’s Escaping Reality EP, released January 1 and available now online.
