With the heat index reaching 127 in the South today, I thought hell and my neighborhood were going to be the only things on fire. Thankfully, I was wrong. New Jersey native J.Y. is back at it again in the Booth, and while his last entry Tell Me What It Is (Remix) left Booth-heads a little underwhelmed, he more than makes up for it with his latest leak, Say Yeah. Vertical Jones does well on the track with his new age synth/fader production, while J.Y. pushes his craftily baritoned bars to another level. The hook from feature Michael Charles seems to work well with the mellow beat and Y’s flow, but it’s Warner Bros. signee X.V. who’s truly the shining light on the track from the get go, dropping lines like, “They was on the fence about me from the beginning / good, because that’s where I’m aiming every inning.” If you’re warming up to J.Y.’s sound on this track, be sure to keep a lookout for his latest project, the Hiring Process Mixtape, dropping July 28.
