PsychoYP is finally treating us to a taste of his soon-to-be-released project, “YPSZN 2” with three singles all at once. Just last week, the rapper announced the release date and tracklist of the follow-up to his stellar tape, “YPSZN” which was released to good reviews and has even amassed over a million streams – an impressive feat for an artist on the rise. And with the release of the three new tracks off “YPSZN 2“; ‘City Of Kings‘, ‘Elevate‘ and ‘No Chaser‘, we have a feel of what to expect on the coming project.
‘City Of Kings‘ which happens to be the album opener is a worthy introduction to the project as it finds PsychoYP in his element, riding for his city over rolling hi-hats and hard-hitting kicks. The record is also littered with striking ad-libs reminiscent of Desiigner‘s 2015 monster hit, ‘Panda‘. On ‘Elevate‘ Afropop meets hip-hop as PsychoYP interpolates Olamide‘s ‘Motigbana‘, coming through with a relaxing melodic rap over a laid back instrumental.
But of the three releases, the Terri-assisted ‘No Chaser‘ takes the cake. This song enjoys a brilliant and catchy hook from Terri with PyschoYP stepping up with playful brags over the radio-friendly tune.
If these records are anything to go by, the sophomore curse has nothing on YP as the tape is already sounding like a worthy sequel. Remember, “YPSZN 2” drops on Monday, November 4.
