Yasiin Bey takes on Chief Keef for the latest in freestyle project

November 29, 2012

Remember when Yasiin was going to rap over all of your favorite radio hits from the charts and add his own edge to things? His Top 40 Underground project got a little cold since he put his stamp over Niggas in Paris, but it’s not dead yet. Here he is over the beat to Chief Keef’s viral hit, “I Don’t Like” with his own unfavorite things. We heard him flow over some trap beats in his last show around here in August, seems the def one isn’t shying from dipping his toes the new styles afterall.
