Yonas – A Lyricist On Another Level

Original Article Release April 17, 2014 Great poets make great story tellers, and in today’s hip hop, the art of story telling has been lost by years of watered down lyrics. Take it for what it is, but I have to be real, and call it like it is.  There really is only so many ways to tell the same story about sex, drugs, and money before it becomes numbing on both the ears and the brain. I often sit back and wonder if the state of current hip hop is a product of the fans listening to it, or if the fans are a product of hip hop.  I recently sat down and listened to three hip hop tracks in a row. I walked away from the session thinking the only thing I got out of it was that one artist had stacks of money, another was fresh, and I’m still trying to figure out what the hell the other dude was talking about.

With the lack of talent in the industry today, it’s refreshing to see a young artist such as Yonas refuse to conform to hip hop, and stay real to who he truly is, an inspiring and incredibly talented lyricist. Hailing from New York City, Yonas has crafted a unique style that is quick to catch the attention of anybody that truly studies the lyrics on a track. His message is inspiring, uplifting, and encouraging as he discusses the world issues from a faithful perspective.

In his young career, Yonas has won a Billboard song writing award, been featured in XXL magazine, and had airtime on MTVu.  His album “The Black Canvas EP” hit the top 5 hip hop charts on iTunes for the first 72 hours of it’s release. This is a testament to his unique style and continued commitment to be independent from the rest of the industry. He has something different that people are looking for. From that uniqueness, he has been able to set himself apart from other rappers, and pave his own path in the game.
