EDITORS’ NOTES

Putting the charm in Charm City hip-hop, YGG Tay’s Rich Before Rap 2 mixtape covers all the bases for street rap: money, drugs, and women. But the B-more rapper keeps things interesting with unexpected delivery, crazy beats, and an honest streak. With “Trappin,” he makes it clear you don’t want to mess with him, but he’s not too hard to admit he loves his girl. On “Badder” he even makes monogamy sound gangsta: “Got his and hers Rollys/Watch them diamonds dance.”
