Moses with a flow (head nod to Spec Boogie). That’s who Yaw is or could be. The man knows how to keep his digital shadow in check. All I know is that he hails from Chicago, he’s religious and he’s the lead singer for a band called Black Slang. On his MySpace profile, he calls himself “a b-boy trapped deep inside a soul singer”.
Yaw’s brand of b-boy infused soul is timeless. I’m sure you’ve all heard this track before, but it still stops me in my tracks every time. Those strings, those horns, that sad, contemplative tone. Epic.
Yaw – Where would you be (Chisoul, 2008)
