No, that isn't a weird fuckup where I meant to type "YG." This is a rapper named YF, and this is a remix of a song he made called "Flex Hard." It features Maxo Kream and Katie Got Bandz, two rappers from disparate regions (Houston and Chicago, respectively) who manage to sound very, very good together. YF is from Staten Island, and he is much more interesting than the goofballs kicking around New York getting mad about dudes in tight pants whose end goal is rotation on Hot 97 and a slot on the Summer Jam underbill. Not that Summer Jam and Hot 97 aren't dope and all, but, like, it can be better if you aim higher sometimes? YF's got a nice VFILES sale-rack goon vibe about him, one that he'll surely explore further in his upcoming tape IAmYF. It will be 400% more interesting than the output of New York snoozers like Canibus, Troy Ave, Papoose, and honorary New Yorker Cilvaringz.
