Yakki Divioshi premieres "DRAKE" via Mass Appeal

Premiere: Yakki Divioshi “D.R.A.K.E.”

Yakki Divioshi is the heavyset dude from Young Thug’s YSL crew who wears his long dreads bundled up on one side of his head— kinda off-kilter-like, which is a good way of describing his rapid-fire flows. Still, you can feel dude on his new song “D.R.A.K.E.”— which premieres this morning on Mass Appeal— when he says, “I shoulda been outshinin’ these fuck [ninjas] / Cause I been outgrindin’ these fuck [ninjas] / Chopper outline you fuck [ninjas] / Gun so clean that a [ninja] can’t trace.”

Complex rhyme patterns combined with thug’s passion have proven to be a winning, if lethal, combination before. Yeah, yeah. Yakki previously hosted the mixtape Jugg Music, which dropped May 1 of this year. He and Thug have a tape called For Geekers Only and his own tape Black Jack drops August 21.

During his climactic verse near the end of the Lil Silk record “Know Money,” Yakki reveals the motivation behind his lyrics of fury, “Did I forget to mention / I do it for the underprivileged, and those without no pot to piss in?”

Yakki’s got a lot of tunes on the road right now, but this one happens to be both a real ATL street record and a catchy heat-seaker named after Aubrey Graham, so who knows what could happen with it? Co-produced by Tino and TM88 of 808 Mafia, “D.R.A.K.E.” finds Yakki singing Drizzy’s acronym on the hook: “It’s only right that I Do Right And Kill Everything.” From there he declares in polyrhythmic staccato how he “started from the bottom now I’m headed to the top,” which is no exaggeration on either count. Yakki supplements Thugger’s unhinged energy, apropos-of-nothing-adlibs, and sense of humor (“It’s like I got on two left shoes cause I am trippin”) with precision flows (peep the double-time acapella blackout at the 2:27 mark “I eatin’ rappers for dinner / Audemar look like the 5th of December,” etc…). And when Yakki yells “DRAKE!” he gives the Toronto rapper’s name an ill jolt of energy just when he needs it most— right before preparing to host the ESPYs. It’s only right.
