YTB Kaine dropped his first-in-line single for an upcoming album. We have confirmed the album title “Unapologetic,” and the album will be a collaboration. “The Bombs Over Baghdad” has dropped a few months ago and features artists Duke and Law.
The single “The Bombs Over Baghdad” feels like a slow burn and builds exceptionally well. The track commences with a heavy mid-piano-synth and hits home hard with a toy-mallet synth melody, a heavy kit, 808, and emotional vocals that come in at all once.
The single captures the ear by break breaks and the realism lyrics. The metaphor “Bombs Over Baghdad” has heartfelt meaning to YTB Kaine, as he has lost a lot in his life in the last few months:
“Unapologetic” is exactly what it says: ‘I’m not sorry.’ I’ve lost a lot in the past year – family, friends, the money I got a lot to get off my chest
The collaboration on the single with YTB Kaine, Duke, and Law feel suitable as the transitions throughout the single work well as each artist gives us their piece. It feels as if they play off each other, which creates a good collaboration.
The artwork full of fire fury and matches the single well. A city lit on fire as a massive cloud of smoke takes over the air. The artwork collaborates with the single “The Bombs Over Baghdad” well – a visual metaphor that ties it together.
Life can be highly confusing sometimes with massive changes in one’s life. As YTB Kaine has confirmed, he has been through a lot in the past year, and not only do the emotions and lyrical content provide, the artwork certainly takes it home, and I salute the artists for really laying down a well-composed single and brand.
YTB Kaine is from Pontiac, Michigan, and is no stranger to the rap industry. At the age of 13 and with his best friend and cousin, he would freestyle into a recorder, having fun as he learned the craft.
The fun turned into a passion and talent, which lead YTB Kaine into a group named: Yaktownboyz. (Yaktown was a nickname for the city they had grown up in, Pontiac.
YTB Kaine has undoubtedly gained a lot of success over the years, performing alongside Yung LA, Rakim, E40, Fat Joe, Mike Jones, Freeway, and more.
He holds a lot of emotion in his music; he writes from the heart and experiences as he strives to help himself and others as a composer.
We look forward to more singles being released from the upcoming album, “Unapologetic.”
