YP - Certified

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: YP
  • Track: Certified
  • Producer: Jeff Wallace
  • Album: None

As hip-hop heads are well aware, being recognized as a true G isn't just a matter of spending four years at the University of Hard Knocks and taking home a diploma to hang on your office wall. For one thing, it's hard to find a suitable wall when your office is the streets. More importantly, 'hood credentials aren't earned once and for all, but asserted and subsequently defended against all comers. On YP's latest single, the Raekwon-cosigned up-and-comer shows us how it's done, declaring himself street-Certified and daring anyone to say differently. Jeff Wallace takes a uniquely catchy approach on the production tip, overlaying a syncopated boom-bap rhythm with Chipmunk-sampled “oh”s as the Windy City representative (and freestyle series alum) reminds listeners that, despite being an artist on the rise, he's got his feet planted firmly on the pavement. Though not slated for inclusion on the currently-untitled follow-up to YP's Booth-sponsoredNo Sleep mixtape, this paper-stacking anthem should nonetheless please the artist's growing fanbase. Keep it locked for the latest tunes, as well as release details on the new project!
