Yay Abe: YVNG & FREE

The artwork for YVNG & FREE was penned by creative artist Russell Abrahams—also known as Yay Abe. Known for giving fresh life to the ordinary, the multi-disciplinary artist and illustrator extended his personal brand into a creative incubator for illustrators of colour, and his selections for YVNG & FREE underscore his drive to put others on. “I think SA’s young local talent has this amazing energy that celebrates craft and passion like no other,” he tells Apple Music. “Although I am a visual artist, this playlist is definitely the audible representation of my work, and vice-versa.” With a mix of established and up-and-coming talent, including Riky Rick, Yanga Chief, A-Reece, Petite Noir and Dope Saint Jude, this is a celebration of creativity.
