Yung Wun may be tardy to the Southern hip-hop boom — this debut appears a full three years after his buzz-generating appearance on 2001’s WWIII Ruff Ryders compilation — but he still sounds fresh. The Atlanta emcee distinguishes himself on The Dirtiest Thirstiest from fellow Peach State rappers like Pastor Troy by using refreshingly unorthodox sonic backdrops, such as the marching band in ”Tear It Up.” And his throaty delivery — less East Side Boyz than Rob Zombie — invests his urban chants with spooky charm.
Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Yung Wun; Producer (group): J Records
