If you’ve ever wondered what the evolution of hip-hop’s “Golden Era” would sound like, it sounds a lot like YC The Cynic, who embraces the era, but puts his own spin on it. With “Driver’s Seat” he’s come up with one of the most appropriate choruses to describe his current position in the scene, “fuck that, I’m in the driver’s seat now.” YC The Cynic is in the driver’s seat as his ascendance in the scene continues and he's not about to put his foot on the break anytime soon. As an aside, I imagine this song is a huge crowd pleaser, with everyone rapping the chorus along with him. Heck, I was rapping along by the end of the song and this was just the video!
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
