Though Yonas’ last feature found him showcasing his Stupid Brilliance, the NYC buzzmaker’s knack for dropping rhymes so dumb they’re genius shouldn’t overshadow the fact that, when he wants to be, he’s just plain smart. Case in point: new promo single Nobody Else a joint as on-point as it is catchy (very). Here, a guitar-laced beat by Sean Divine sets the stage for some reflections on gender relations: “Women of the world, we need you more than ever, cause when you heal a man you bring the nation together / and when a man is hurt he showers you with abuse, and then we teach the kids, that’s the trouble with the youth…” While the up-and-comer offers no easy answer to the tough questions he poses, he does succeed in teaching by example, pledging to treat the women in his life as they deserve to be treated. Topped off with a sincere sung hook, this ode to female self-respect is sure to have heads nodding along in agreement. Nobody isn’t currently attached to any forthcoming project, but those who like what they’re hearing can download the cut at the link below.
