Cleveland’s Y.G.K. chases his dreams on ‘State Of Mind’

state of mind

As I sat at my computer, scrolling through endless, monotonous music submissions, I opened one by a Cleveland artist named Y.G.K. and my lengthy hunt was instantly worth it. State Of Mind is a sonic journey into hip-hop’s depths. Y.G.K. is exactly the type of artist that catches my ears. His sound carries boom-bap influences, but he makes it his own – effortlessly flowing over gorgeous production from Soledad Brother and weaving in and out of creative metaphors. Chasing your dreams naturally comes with a paired uncertainty. Y.G.K. digs deep into his personal life to connect the two and, ultimately, overcome.
