“Red Like a Rose” is the standout single from Yung Zay’s debut album “Unpredictable”. The short and sweet track runs through with plenty of energy which is found in both the lyrical delivery and the experimentally expressive Trap-style beat which infuses plenty elements of Jazz-infused Old School Hip Hop.
As much as I appreciated the creativity and the tangible passion which was thrown into the mix with Red Like a Rose, the lyrical repetition did start to resonate as a little excessive in the chorus, and in the verses, the Rap delivery came dangerously close to Mumble Rap. Yet, Red Like a Rose along with the other tracks found in Yung Zay’s 2019 album still stand as a testament to his authentic talents when it comes to creating soulfully high-vibe Hip Hop.
