Rochester, NY (A.K.A. Hell’s Roof) spitter, Young Sleep returns with a video for new loosie, “Different.” Visuals (Directed by Isiah. Shot. It) use boxing as a metaphor for the emcee’s drive in the face of the odds that are stacked against him.
With an opening sample taken from Rocky IV, Y.S. says:
“that’s the scene whereIvan Drago kills Apollo Creed in the ring. Drago was a big machine that was supposed to be unconquerable but Rocky defeated him and that’s how I view the game. The odds against success are serious but I’m just going to keep battling away.”
“Different” is available via all streaming platforms now as well as his recent project Sleep City 2, which features appearances from Ransom, DNA, Project Pat and more.
