Toronto emcee Jimmy Yitty gives us an oddly amazing juxtaposition of vocal style and beats atmosphere with the track “Sailor Moon” produced by Truth Willis.
Yitty’s grimy, School Boy Q esque vocals blend well with the uniquely mixed and lighthearted beat. Shying away from the common hard and obvious trap style, the beat feels melodic and laid back while still retaining a trap feel. Yitty’s familiar aggression is still present the delivery of his lyrics, yet held back enough to give the track a slightly remorseful R&B that works beautifully.
