East Oakland native ymtk is known for his sophisticated and wavy blend of rap and R&B, often combining summery soundscapes with emotional tales of love. Sometimes, however, ymtk just wants his tracks to slap. “In This Moment” is an ideal club jam, with booming bass and brilliant production flourishes that make the track as fun to listen to with headphones as Hennessy.
ymtk is gearing up for the release of his 9Song.Wav project on 9/29, which paints a narrative about different stages of love, using different metaphors and double entendres to interpret complex emotions and situations. Featuring appearances from P-Lo and Ye Ali, 9Song.Wav will extend your internal summer far past Labor Day, with ymtk’s silken voice as your constant companion through the darker months. 9Song.Wav continues the momentum from Emoji Goats EP, a collaborative project with Rexx Life Raj, which Complex named an Album That Should Be On Your Radar.
