Mark our words: 2014 is the year that New York City hip-hop makes a return to the spotlight. And along with the likes of Troy Ave., A$AP Mob and Joey Bada$$, look for a new name to put on for his city: Yahiness.
The South Jamaica, Queens spitter drops his new DJ Enuff mixtape Train Of Thought today, bringing dizzying wordplay ("Flowers") and visual narratives ("Story to Tell" is a 2013 take on Nas' "One Love") over Omen-engineered instrumentals.
Check out Yahiness' mixtape below. The "95 Freestyle" over Milkbone's "Keep It Real"—which Big L and Jay Z famously flowed over—is currently on repeat in our Beats By Dre.
