Yung Gleesh – Ain’t Shit Changed
Yung Gleetchie is as weird as they get. Coming out of the DMV, he’s been called the Lil’ B of the North, but Lil’ B doesn’t make music anywhere close to as catchy as Gleesh does. “Lazyness” is one of the biggest sleeper hits of the year, and songs like “Which 1 U Worken” and “2 Thangs” prove that it’s far from a fluke. He even got on a track with Yung Lean recently, but what initially seems like chemistry ends up being Gleesh outshining the Swedish rapper.
Comparisons are always convenient when introducing people to new artists, and Gucci Mane is definitely the closest epicenter to Yung Gleesh’s style, but he’s so extraterrestrial that he really doesn’t have any human counterparts. He strains his voice in and out of Autotune like he’s dying for some drugs. Most importantly, he’s experimenting, something too many young rappers are scared to do.
