On his first single, Young Son reflected on his people’s history with a timeless classic; on his second single, he marveled at how far hip-hop has come. For number three, YS has decided to Say These Werds, a combination of both his previous songs and a conscious tour-de-force. When is the last time you remember an artist saying, “ebonics make me nauseous”? In keeping with the Soul Inspired tone of Hip-Hop’s Revival, in-house producers Tightbeatz chip in a Beatles sample (from the side-A finale on Rubber Soul, Michelle). Say These Werds is the last single off HHR and a bridge towards his sophomore album, the tentatively titled Philanthropist.
