The title of YP‘s latest cut might be a little off; considering his popularity in the Booth, you can hardly call the Chi-Town emcee a Black Sheep of the rap game. On the new loosie release, YP spits like the polar opposite of a Black Sheep, delivering braggadocios verses jam-packed with quotable lines (my favorite: “I’m a dog without the time for a cat nap until I’m Warren Buffet.”). Producer Xcel’s boardwork, featuring understated, chopped vocal samples and winding, chiming synths, give the track its much needed edge. There is no word on whether YP has any larger projects in the works, but perhaps some news will come when he drops new street single, Get With the Team (featuring Sir Michael Rocks), later this week.
