Late last year, Forbes Magazine published a list of the “10 Most Recession Proof Jobs” in America. Not among the listed occupations, which included sales representatives, nurses, software developers, and accounting executives, is unsigned independent rapper. In an attempt to prove Forbes wrong, Young, Fresh, & Fly emcee Emilo Rojas has released a brand new Legend and DJ Noodles-assisted mixtape, Recession Proof. Along with the previously-featured 585 (Roc Y’all Remix), the project will include Way She Moves, a mellowed-out, soothing slow jam featuring accompaniment from fellow economy-conscious emcee Stat Quo (see The Bailout Mixtape), London-born singer Marvin Priest, and frequent production collaborator M-Phazes. Though chasing after fine females may not be a government-approved solution to financial woes, DJBooth would like to remind you that opening your ears to new artists is never against the law.
