YONAS – The Black Canvas [EP]
Posted by Grubeats on February 8, 2013
As you may have noticed, I haven’t been heavy on my blog game lately. Thanks to Nemo, I have the afternoon off from work and I now have some time to share some new music before I get buried in pow pow. I’m a few days late with YONAS’ newest album, The Black Canvas, his first project released under independent record label 1st Round Records, but it was a project I could not pass on. Seven months after dropping The Transition mixtape, the Bronx bomber has yet another incredible body of work for his fans. I’ve always expressed my passion for YONAS’ work, primarily because his music is honest, refreshing, and he holds an ability to paint a picture as good as any other MC in the game. The Black Canvas is just that.
Production credits are impressive in themselves ranging from Teddy Roxpin (Clockwork) to Matty Trump (Put it Down, Y.O.N.A.S., and The Black Canvas) to DJ Corbett (previously featured on The Transition) to Lucian Walker and of course, Sean Ross. As always, YONAS blends popular mainstream caliber production with honest, omniscient lyrics further validating him as one of the most versatile and creative artists rising up.
