With a bright-light filled feeling of something special on the star-lit horizon as this tight track builds up to its much-awaited entrance, 88YAMI shows us what the underground streets have been talking about with ‘My City‘ (feat. YOURBOYMARS).
88YAMI is a South African-born, Perth, Australia-based indie rapper with big goals and a lyrical delivery which shows you he is for real. He is expertly joined on this street-banger by fellow Perth artist YOURBOYMARS, and together they make a formidable team full of ravenous hunger, to be the best in this fickle game.
This is the relevant story of learning from past mistakes that brought your down, as you ignore the distracting temptation-filled DM’s that only get you involved with booty-laced drama, which is only going to get you into ominous trouble. We are brought into a grind-now, chill-later mindset which is packed full of business intuition and investing-in-business manifestations.
The time for small-time is over you feel, as these two skilled rappers and businessmen smartly look from way up top of the building so they can see the whole treasure-laded area full of hidden gold, cleverly plotting their successful path to ever-lasting greatness.
‘My City‘ (feat. YOURBOYMARS) by the emerging Perth, Western Australia-based indie rapper 88YAMI, opens up the map to show us what is hot right now while others foolishly sleep. They have a self-aware attitude to help their own team eat too, as they understand that this secret mission can’t be done alone. With a quick-fire flow and insightful lyrics on how they are going to elevate their standard to the top, this is a highly promising single that has you nodding your head and strapping your boots on to get to work.
In an snoozing era of lazy swiping and undesirable ghosting for no reason, this is an pulsating track to get your body moving to the groove again. The real homies get that the time is now, not tomorrow.
