Let me start by rewinding, to approximately 2 years ago when I first heard about Ye Ali. It all started with a submission and a name that caught my eye. The introductory project was a piece of work entitled ‘Art x Drugs’ which you can stream or download here. The project went on to become one of my favourite tapes ever created. I have never been able to put my finger on exactly what drew me to Ye’s music from day one.
Fast forward 2 years and the Indiana born artist has progressed in ways unimaginable. With a reputation that continues to grow, it’s hard to guess quite where Ye will be in the next 2 years. That time will come but before it all we will get his ‘Traphouse Jodeci’ album, something Ye has been working on for quite sometime now. Knowing Ye personally will forever be one of my proudest moments doing this, that’s real. Ye is pretty much living in the studio and with records like ‘Ring 4x’, ‘Cashin Out’ and ‘Thigh Kisser’ promoting the album perfectly, Ye has all the ammunition to succeed and I truly feel this album will be the kick start to a successful 2016.
Go ahead and get familiar with Ye over at his Soundcloud here. The album drops soon.
