Papijay Fresh & YTN Tee brought drill to the streets of New York with KILLY

Papijay Fresh brought drill to the streets of New York in his blazing track, KILLY, featuring the blazing UK rapper YTN Tee. The 19-year-old rap artist arrived in the US from the Dominican Republic at the age of ten. But the roots of his heritage haven’t been left behind in his atmospheric sound. He raps in his native language, throwing a little Spanish and English lexicon into his hooky high-fire rap bars that are the epitome of dynamic fluidity.

In the span of his career, he’s had his pick of distro deals, working with the likes of Urban Grind and many more along the way. If that wasn’t enough to assert his credibility, he was offered the opportunity to open for Ghostface and when he appeared on Atlantic Records’ radar with his juggernautic hard hitters, it wasn’t long before he had their seal of approval.

His universally electric vibe ensures that even if his staunch fanbase can’t translate every lyric, they still fall under his viscerally versatile spell. Watch this space before Papijay Fresh dominates it.

The official music video for KILLY is available to stream on YouTube.
