Things with a title beginning with “Young And” seem to have a way of catching on. Take the clothing line Young and Reckless or the fan favorite soap opera The Young and The Restless; both are undoubtedly very popular (though aimed at very different demographics). You can add Prodigy’s new video single YNT (Young and Thuggin) to the list, because his latest record is sure to catch on. Supported by the hazy, jazzy boardwork of project collaborator The Alchemist, Prodigy delivers a grimy, rugged flow that stands in sharp contrast to the record’s airy vibe—but not before his guest, Domo Genesis, kicks off the cut with a gritty, yet fluid guest 16. If YNT struck a chord with you, be sure to cop the emcee-producer duo’s Albert Einstein LP, scheduled to drop June 11, and available for free streaming at DJBooth on Monday, the 10th.
