Youngs - Rhymin’
Encore, encore. When we dropped Youngs’ DJBooth debut track Him & Her a couple weeks ago, the response was so overwhelmingly positive that we had to bring the anything-but-Normal emcee back for a sophomore effort (see, he’s from Normal, Illinois, so…nevermind). Long story short, you’re now listening to Rhymin’, the aptly named leaked cut that Youngs has now decided to – thankfully - fully endorse. For all my beat making heads out there, producer Sketch constructs Rhymin by flipping a sample from indie rock group Freshly Ground’s I’d Like, and all my lyrical heads out there would be well advised to keep a sharp eye out for Young’s densely packed, mostly food based metaphors: “See none other, my margarine flow’s nuts, peanut butter” / “I’m on that holy cow, before I play the stakes (steaks), before I eat a rapper, I say amazing grace.” While Rhymin’s associated project the Fountain of Youth II mixtape isn’t due out until 2011, those hungry for more Youngs should look out for his Remote Controlled Revolution LP, coming in May.
