Jonathan Rivera, also known as King Phaze, may have been born in the rough and tumble Boogie Down, Bronx, but the 25-year-old Yonkers rookie has citywide connections. On Yonkers Anthem, Rivera links up with a few neighboring stars to celebrate the place he calls home. Featuring two-thirds of The Lox, as well as DMX, this street smash with a Linkin Park Collision Course edge courtesy of producer Divine Bars is a fitting tribute to the Y.O. In an attempt to give Phaze a major co-sign, however, the vets steal the show, particularly DMX, who wears his heart upon his sleeve as he mulls over his current legal issues. King Phaze’s first single proves him an up-and-coming talent with star potential.
