Every Friday night, RVA Mag brings you an epic, glorious playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.
This week’s comes to us from up-and-coming Richmond rapper Yung Sums, who has made a name for himself around town as a battle rapper with strong displays at Southpaw Battle Coalition events, among others. His studio skills are strong as well, and he demonstrated that fact on 2019’s Mayflower, an album that represented a step up from his already impressive 2018 effort, Black Friday.
Yung Sums will lead you into the weekend with a playlist full of hip hop goodness, mixing classics of the genre with some of the best being laid down today. And of course, there are some leading lights of the RVA hip hop scene mixed in, just to keep that local flavor. So even if the storm clouds hang over the river city all weekend, you’re sure to have some killer beats and dope rhymes to get through until Monday with a smile on your face.
Keep it hype, Virginia.
