Introduced to the Booth via reader-acclaimed motivational anthem Don’t Give Up, Y1 returns to our front page with another hustle-centric selection off his next street album. On Rich Man & the Pauper, the Baltimore buzzmaker chronicles constant struggle to ward off snakes in the grass. Joining him over beatsmith Krazie‘s string-led sampling of The O Jays’ Back Stabber, Jay Verze contributes guest bars. For more, check out Y1’s Finally OrigYna1 tape when it arrives on the ‘net August 14.
