If you tell Asto that he’s phenomenal on the mic, don’t expect a “Thank you” in return. More likely than not, the Brooklyn wunderkind‘s response to your compliment will be a curt, “Yes I Know My G.” Coming on the heels of the reader-approved New New York, this freshly-minted mixtape single sees the young rhymesayer delivering bold and arrogant bars over a slow-rolling BMC beat. In a standout line, he shows off his polysyllabic chops as he describes his approach to the fairer sex: “No relationships with funny chicks, I don’t wanna see ya / I try to bang, then poof—onomatopoaeia.” Director Garth Van Glen chronicles the emcee’s reckless behavior in his engaging official visuals. Fans should watch our pages for the latest visual releases from recently-released mixtape Starvin Like Marvin for a Cool J Song , as well as Astro’s upcoming contribution to our exclusive freestyle series.
