Y1‘s early years weren’t easy by any means, but he regards his impoverished upbringing as a blessing in disguise. As he explains on freshly-minted single G.R.O.M.C. (Getting Rich Off My Childhood), “If it wasn’t for my struggle sh*t, I would have never got on my hustle, b*tch.” In high-energy verses, the Baltimore representer and his guest, Rayman, celebrate the power of adversity to forge one’s character, flowing over The Covenant‘s trap percussion and triumphant synth-brass. Recreation is slated to hit record stores and online retailers July 4. In the meantime, of course, we’ll keep you supplied with the latest song releases.
