Sure, the blog has slowed down a little. That’s life though right? Something always comes up that takes precedent. Every once in awhile I come out of my slumber to post something dope. That’s the case today.
Anyone who has been an avid reader of the blog or follows me on social media knows what a huge fan of Young Daa I am. This isn’t the first or last time I will post about him either. That’s why I am super stoked to present to you his new ep, “Based on a Young Story”.
The first things that hits you on this tape is the MAJOR beat on “Bentley”. This thing goes in and bumps hard thanks to production on this track from ADOTHEGOD and
Big Jerm. The whole tape features production from ADOTHEGOD, Big Jerm, Big Cat, Nyce and two tracks produced by Daa himself.
The aforementioned “Bentley” bumps incredibly hard, but doesn’t mean its just a hot beat with nothing else to it. Daa is a master at this. He is able to always take hard hitting beats, throw in a little screw and chop and still somehow manage to have substance in his music. This first track is a great example.
I’m just speaking the truth/building the future by teaching the youth/Act as a king tell the world you’re the truth/Stand like a God it’s the right thing to do.
Oh yeah, The. Hook. Goes. Hard!
I don’t want to give away everything on this tape. It’s five tracks and 13 minutes that you need to experience for yourself. It’s probably gonna be in your rotation for awhile. I mean the whole damn tape too. Every track goes in. We get two really great features on here too. One from 1n3 and one from Slugga G ( RIP Rickole “Lil Reco” Rogers (Slugga-G).
Daa managed to make something short and sweet, but really special with this. I feel in a lot of ways this is different than anything else he has ever done and I know it’s just a teaser too. Daa has been know to be personal with some of his music, but this whole project feels like it comes straight from his chest. That full length is coming and I can feel it. The SAFS homie really shines on here. He shows a keen aptitude for rapping and the ability to change up flows, styles, topics and ride any beat that he touches.
Ball first, before you walk, crawl first/You can turn a penny to a million keep God first/Whatever you going through n*gga somebody doing worse/And fuck being second all the winners place first.
