Yung Pe$o’s got a southern “mumble rap” vibe not unlike Hotlanta artists such as Migos and 21 Savage. That comparison aside, Pe$o got us hooked from jump on his “Sufferin’,” which comes off like his own personal movie narrated with raspy, muttering introspection. His quirky monologue has a haunting quality where he reveals his pains, pleasures and struggles––then shows a survivor’s ability to laugh it all off. “SoLo” features an imaginative rapid/fluid flow married to a laidback beat, but proves to be a bit monotonous. Some of us like the artist’s unusual flow on the hypnotic, chant-like “Grave.” We urge Yung Pe$o to continue to hone his craft and arrive at a sound that is all his own.
