Boston-based Hip Hop artist Young Sham cooked up a magnetically immersive drop with their latest single “BlokBoy” which was released earlier this year.
Boom Bap fans, in particular, are definitely going to want to pay attention to the authoritative yet antagonistically playful track. Young Sham’s lyrical wit is perceptible in every verse in the short but not so sweet mix which was produced by beatsbyneco.
Their deadpan rap delivery sits against deep ominous keys while the 808s lay down a rhythm which offers plenty of grind and make it all too easy to get hooked in the flow of BlokBoy.
It’s easy to see why we’re not the only ones getting hyped about Young Sham’s instantly arrestive approach to Hip Hop. There may be plenty of familiar elements, yet, he’s undoubtedly made the style their own.
