With a solid musical foundation already laid out, South London resident and ORPHGANG collective member YJ has (bar a few spot tracks) spent much of the last year in research and development mode - quietly watching the musical landscape from behind the "dug-out" as he puts it in his first offering for the new year, simply titled '2016'.

It's a freestyle that lays his intentions for the year frightfully bare onto the masses, with lots of quick witted bars and one-liners. You might just need to listen a few times to catch them all and be sure to look out for a few surprise lines from fellow ORPHGANG members TINYMAN and Kojey Radical. While this isn't expected to feature on it, YJ has also been working on the follow-up to 2013's highly praised Deal or No Deal mixtape. If this is just a warm-up, the race looks set to be a thrilling one.
