Yebba Is The Real Deal

You could be forgiven for assuming Yebba is British. The singer born Abbey Smith — her stage name is Abbey backwards — is working in a hip-hop-adjacent retro soul realm that, in the 21st century, has been dominated by English singers like Amy Winehouse, Duffy, and Adele. One listen to “Boomerang,” the most decidedly Winehouse-esque throwback on Yebba’s debut album Dawn, is enough to clue you in to Back To Black producer Mark Ronson’s involvement. But no, Yebba is not from the UK. She’s from Arka...

The Blueprint Turns 20

I know multiple people who woke up one Tuesday morning, watched from windows or Brooklyn rooftops as the second plane hit and the World Trade Center fell, and then went out and bought The Blueprint. Jay-Z’s opus wasn’t supposed to come out on September 11, but Jay was worried about bootleggers — he was always worried about bootleggers — and so he moved up the album release a week. On that calamitous morning, when people didn’t know if New York was under attack or the world was ending or what, pe...

BabyTron Finds His Own Weird Little Lane

Event-rap can be fun, but it can be oppressive, too. Rap’s A-list megastars exist off in their own distant-imagination island, light years removed from the twists and mutations of the genre’s day-to-day existence. Drake and Kanye West clearly do everything in their power to stay on top of the zeitgeist, and it’s always fun to see a Fivio Foreign or a Westside Gunn get a chance to show out on a Kanye record. But guys like Drake and Kanye aren’t moving rap forward, and they haven’t moved rap forwa...
