Spotlight: Young Roc’s “Upp” is a refreshing, contemporary jam

Published

on

Much has been said about the diverse array of talent that comprises the Detroit rap scene. There’s an abundance of flows that make finding similar artists very hard to do. One thing that does bring the city together is the overall dedication to providing quality bars that don’t really adventure outside of a traditional type of delivery. Young Roc, a Detroit native who focuses as much on mystique as he does on crafting an original project, is the antithesis to this; he combines rap with R & B in a way that feels culturally relevant in 2017. His last release “Gone Till November” was featured on our site because we loved the refined approach he took to a popular sound. Now he’s back, making older styles fresh with a new type of delivery with his single “Upp.”

“Upp” is a lot of things; atmospheric, silky smooth, and sensual. What it isn’t is a traditional rap song, so if sing-rap deters you than you may want to steer clear. But if you do, you’re missing out on a hell of a record. It’s been on repeat for the last hour because of how smooth it goes down, like ice cream on a summer day.

Check out “Upp” below:
