Three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), a new artist is featured on XXLMag.com’s The Break. An ideal destination for fans, artists, and industry members, The Break showcases up and coming talent, giving a brief introduction on the artist or group, and highlighting some of their standout music. Each month, industry insiders will team with XXL to rate and comment on the submissions.
For the month of June, Sonny Digital—who will serve as one of three judges—checked out the section to see what yesterday’s talent (Yonas) had to offer. Check out his comments below.
Yonas “Pumped Up Kicks” (to see more from Yonas, click here)
“I like this guy, I think he’s pretty dope; I really like his visuals. ‘Pumped Up Kicks,’ the first video with the kids in it has a dope vibe. I really like the first and second beats, they were dope. The last track I think it was alright but I’d definitely work with him. I see him doing something big. I already follow him on Twitter. He’s got great potential, especially with the visuals and I think he’s got the quality music to do it.”
