T.Y. x Bo$quiat Clique – Hate [Audio]
Hamilton, ON – It’s that time of the week, again. It’s #TYTuesday. In case you’re not familiar, here’s the down-low on it all: Hamilton-based rapper T.Y. is getting ready to launch a new project. As a campaign for the project release, he’s hitting us with a new remix every single Tuesday. And we’ve been debuting them for you here on HipHopCanada. T.Y. got a little freaky this week, though. He switched up the game.
When T.Y. launched #TYTuesday, the plan was to drop a different remix every single week. Key word: “remix.” But this week, T.Y. hit us with an original jam (with production courtesy of Joel Johnston) entitled “Hate.” Ya heard? This is some fresh new original tuneage, people! And what’s more – this week’s track is also a collaboration with T.Y.’s fellow Ontario cats: Bo$quiat Clique (88Flow, B3auu and EJ Grant). Check it out below.
It all starts off with some dialogue. And by dialogue, I mean B3auu is talking during the recording. And EJ calls him out on it. Way to be, B3auu. Then the beat drops. And things get serious: “This is not a gimmick.” EJ Grant kicks things off with the first verse. Then T.Y. hits us with his verse. 88 Flow cops the third verse. And B3auu wraps up the track on the last verse.
Shout-out to Joel Johnston on that production, though. It’s such a T.Y. beat – it’s got that smooth vibe-out floaty feel, and a floor-thumping old-school-influenced beat. Ugh. I’m really feeling this. I like how T.Y. and the Bo$quiat cats work together. That opening dialogue is just so telling; they’re homies and they’re just kicking it and spitting bars. It’s not a flex or – even – a competition. It’s a combining of forces. And it’s fire.
About: Yours Truly, T.Y.
After a brief hiatus following “Brooklyn Way” and “Let Me Ask You” earlier this year in March premiered on The Come Up Show. Fans have been patiently awaiting the move and the anticipation couldn’t be any higher. Humble as ever, T.Y. has been gearing up to take things to new heights with his new project – which remains untitled at the moment. It’s one that will touch people emotionally, he is a man of the people, and the people stand in his corner willing to go to extreme lengths to support him in any plight he chooses to embark on.
