YP's album art cover
Young Phantom successfully constructs a comprehensible and conceptual tape with relatable quotes and a modern production for the current and next generation to enjoy. His vivid paintings and story telling come to life in what must be said is his greatest work so far.
The 21 year old's growth is clear and obvious, his work is no longer overly complicated like his self produced debut Pink Ocean. There is a confidence and certainty in his approach, his lyrics are better presented and his sound more controlled.
Yp held an album launch in UCC at the Glucksman exhibition building, to be honest telling you about this event won't justify the real event, l suggest you look out for the video.
