Y-Love…? Why not…

… Especially when you’re the freshest thing in Kosher beats, and cred runs deep to the text. Y’all, if you’re looking for what to peep next, go find a copy of the latest from Y-Love. Born Yitz Jordan, Y-Love is effortless spiritual flexion on the mic. His image is strange and no deception, cat’s a black Jew… so what’s “urban” music now… what’s “black” music mean? Check this out…

Here is another video and a couple of downloads for you to sample. Enjoy…
