Year of the Ox Put on a Lyrical Clinic in “YOX” Video
You said you wanted real rap back?
First off, let’s dead any preconceptions that Asians can’t rap. Year of the Ox, composed of Lyricks and JL, are two Korean emcees from Virginia putting on for the Asian community in a game that doesn’t take kindly to new faces. The two first made a splash when their Team Backpack video reached over a million views. And now with their EP recorded, they’re starting to release new content including the video for “YOX.”
The beat from Ro BLVD mixes classic boom bap samples with something that you’d want to add to your next Halloween playlist, giving the black and white music video the perfect menacing feel. Each dude puts on a fine display of flows and wordplay that will earn your respect by the end of each verse. But we’ll let you figure all of that on your own with the video above.
