When I saw Yonas in my inbox this morning, I was afraid that this would be the day that he makes a less-than-average track, and that I’d have to deliver the sad message to Booth listeners. It’s hard enough to be considered good, but to be consistently great is nearly impossible. Well, as we heard on his former track Mindless, and now on his new effort New World Order, impossible is nothing to Yonas. Sean Divine lays down a sick fast-paced and club ready production that Yonas uses to spit lyrical fire like: “Treating every city like it’s our town/ we don’t just take it for the night this s*** is ours now/ everyone in rap is a beast or a so-called animal, well I’m gonna burn the barn down.” It’s that type of dopeness the crowd at Webster Hall was treated to last Saturday during Yonas’ DJBooth-sponsored show. What, you couldn’t make it out? Don’t feel (too) terrible, I’m sure there’s more Yonas coming soon, as well as the release of his still unscheduled Seven EP. That’s right, it’s the dawning of a new world hip-hop order.
