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).

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.
