Young Gii is an artist who was born and raised in Nassau Bahamas in a neighborhood called Pinewood Gardens. He quickly fell in love with the world of Hip-Hop at the age of 17 when he moved to America with just the shirt off his back. He has used his struggles and life experiences as a catalyst to produce great music.
Young Gii released the single “I Need To Smoke” and this was an entire vibe. You may be familiar, or unfamiliar with the mesmerizing record, “La La” by the artist Naughty Boy, a hipped pop song, and one of my favorite tunes! Well what if we told you Young Gii used the melodies of this beat, and completely transformed this into an intriguing, and dope hip-hop record. Using the same melodic arrangement of “La La” in the beat, Young Gii adds his own artistry onto the song which turned out to be a laid-back tune, with an aggressive flow. You’re already feeling the vibe before the song transitions into an entire different beat. Something more dancehall, groovy, while remaining calm. These special transitions gave this song a more stand-out appeal for me as a listener. Young Gii is able to show how multi-faceted he is as an artist, opposed to sticking to the usual predicaments of a single. I loved this aspect of “I Need To Smoke”, and this could for sure hold its own on any popular vibe playlist you have at the moment! So why not discover a new dope artist who has what it takes to be a hitmaker!
