ALBUM REVIEW

Scribemecca

YungPatronus

Released July 2018

Tacoma-based trio BADYOSHI have recently been burning up the Seattle hip-hop scene, but this album is a stellar solo project from that group’s MC Scribemecca. CityArts praises it for its summertime vibes, “fusing ’80s electro with ’90s G-funk, the Yungpatronus mixtape is your soundtrack for day drinking and night swimming.” Respect My Region compliments how it’s “laid-back, soulful instrumentals pair nicely with pinpointed lyrical concepts, delivered to perfection,” while Distinction adds that “his reinvention is the catalyst for some groove-heavy space disco.”
