I’m not sure what you had going on this week, but YP was busy getting shouted out by one of the greatest rappers of all time, Q-Tip.
In a recent interview with Brooklyn Bodega, Tip (no Cliff) was asked if there were any up-and-coming rappers he was checking for and the first name out of his mouth was Chicago’s very own YP.
BB: Are there any new up-and-coming artists you are checking for? People we should look out for?
Q-Tip: This cat YP from Chicago who is nice. This group SKI, Spree Wilson, Rocky Marciano from Brooklyn – he’s nice. Amanda Diva – I also fucks with her.
Can I get a “Holy Shit!” from the congregation? Damn. I honestly can’t think of a better hip-hop cosign than ATCQ’s front man. I know YP & Q linked up a few months ago and are planning on getting it in again soon, but either way, congrats to YP for this look. I even heard Q bumps Classified in the whip.
Round of applause.
