"Why settle for one type of currency when there are over 180 being circulated globally?"
A question which "YEN", a new single from emerging Boston emcee Dutch ReBelle, begs. It finds her flowing unforgivingly over an ominous, bass-heavy instrumental from Latrell James, touching on recognition, fandom and her desire to experience life through "more than just the US dollar".
"Don't get me wrong, I'm all about the Balmain in the beach house life," says Dutch of the track. "But the struggle makes the success so much sweeter when you're out to earn your keep."
No doubt. "YEN" is a far cry from her previous single, "Love Is", an October 2013 leak that features Mel Monea over production from Mr. Light Upp. Both tracks will be included on her upcoming ReBelle Diaries project, which is coming soon.
I'm a bomb threat, whole crowd gon' bounce
Time like money, nigga, everything counts
Large amounts, just for the finer things
To avoid what the drama brings
