Ignorant Raps, Brilliant Beats
This track's producer should win a grammy. "Graduation" has a clean, rich, funky, progressive beat worthy of any mainstream radio station, reminding me variably of both Kanye and Jay-Z. Sadly, the lyrics are your typical misogynistic sex-drenched slut-shaming, which interest me not one bit, but I'll put up with their clichés just to rock my head to Y.B.S.'s fat instrumentation for a few minutes, which weave a heavy bass guitar with Nu-Soul vocal loops and a funky Roots-style drum track. The song, actually, relies mostly on traditional "rock band" instrumental composition, which is no longer too typical in today's trap and electro-washed hip-hop industry. Awesome job, y'all.
