Josh Clemons is a man who knows exactly what he wants, and doesn’t hesitate to chase after it. On his latest mixtape leak, Hey You, the Los Angeles rapper spots a female who looks unhappy with her fella and goes straight into pickup mode. While I doubt that most guys could get away with addressing a shawty as “You with your ass out,” it’s hard to argue with the smooth, pop-referential game Clemons and his wingman, East Coast high-roller Freck Billionaire spit over Mizfitz SoundZ’ luxuriously soulful chopped-sample instrumental. On the back end (pun not intended), the headliner realizes the female in question has more to offer than a nice posterior: “There’s something special about this one / I don’t get bored when she talk; I actually wanna listen.” Complete with a catchy, lightly Auto-Tuned chorus, Hey You has a vibe reminiscent of a certain Degrassi graduate‘s female-oriented breakout smash – needless to say, there’s considerable hit potential here. Fans can hear more from this promising up-and-comer on his forthcoming Zero Budget: The Installment LP, set to drop on 4/20.
