Yungun/EssaStarted 16 years ago by nashy / toggle topic info
What do people here think of Yungun? I first heard/saw him at the Jazz Cafe last October supporting the P and I thought he was the bomb. I grabbed his album 'The Essance' and it is a sweet little number. There are some classy joints on it such as 'City Breaks', 'Big Idea' and 'Dancing Feet'. Also 'Gringo Lingo' has some Spanish crossover, a la Giant Panda!
What do people reckon then?
I haven't heard his album, but I like what I heard. The Big Idea with Lewis Parker is dope.
Was that the show with Blade? I was meant to get up to that but couldn't make it. I saw PUTS the same week anyway, so I wasn't too disappointed.
from what I heard that guy is sick, I'm looking out for his stuff fo sure
You can grab his cd off his label at http://www.janomi.com I think I got mine for a tenner delivered from them.
Yeh, that Blade show was an absolute joke! The best part was when one of their crew went "I'm here representing the scottish hip-hop scene" and most of the crowd pissed themselves!
Def try and get hold of some of Yungun's stuff though
Yeah man that must've been Respek BA. He's getting mad hype in a lot of UK circles but I'm not really feeling him at all.
It's a shame, because I'm a massive Blade fan since years ago. I heard a couple of tracks from his in-the-works album with Baby J and they're absolutely amazing. It's just such a shame the BA comes across as such as arsehole live and turns so many people of what a skilled emcee Blade is.
I've got essa's album and its pretty damn good.
Not the best, but still tight.
Nice one, cheaper than direct from the label eh? Definitely get round to buying it if you can....
Blimey... I sound like his agent!
Yungun is one is of the illest rappers out there, he's like the Austin Powers of Hip-Hop. "...Too damn smooth, Got chick strippin off like Moulin Rouge!"
