RESPECT. Midwest Native, Young Thunder Returns With, “She Can Lay It Down.”

Thugs need love too. You heard 2Pac and every other rapper who ever laced a mic say it over the years. It’s a concept that’s allowed for some of rap’s more grungy voices to be accepted in the mainstream — Ja Rule, I’m talking to you — by gracing them with angelic singers like Ashanti on hooks. It also allowed for those who didn’t have such intolerable tones to eat up the pie themselves. After releasing his infectious debut on the RESPECT. Magazine pages, Fort Wayne native Young Thunder is back with his vibey new track, “She Can Lay It Down.”

Sticking to a melodic flow that surprisingly compliments his deep tone, Young Thunder lets off bars about an insecurity that cripples him from emotional connection, though not physical. It’s a solid single in preparation for the February 2nd release of his project, Synced. With his entertainment and clothing company, Street Philosophy firmly behind him, the sky is the limit for the Midwest representative.

Check out, “She Can Lay It Down” below and be sure to lookout for Synced, out next month.

RESPECT. The Track: Young Thunder – “Living”

No matter how much the purists try to push and pry, club music will always have a place in Hip-Hop. For every Mos Def, a lyrically-dense wordsmith who’s sole responsibility is to make you scrunch your face like you just smelled a fart, there’s five Mase’s–silky smooth, melodically driven rappers who place women above bars. That’s not to say that Mase didn’t have bars, or that Mos couldn’t rock a party, it’s just to say that there’s a place for everything in Hip-Hop, paving the way for promising artists like Midwest native Young Thunder, who checks in with his newest single, “Living.”

Sticking to a bass-heavy slapper provided by producer, The Dream Beats, Young Thunder lets loose about the finer things in life, and how to appreciate them. With so many people worried about tomorrow, sometimes It could be hard living for today. The single comes off of Thunder’s upcoming project, ‘Synced‘ which is set to release on February 2nd.

Check out the track, “Living” below and be sure to get familiar with the Indiana native.
