Yungun & Mr Thing- Forget Me Not

July 8th, 2006

One of the most satisfying releases from both guys in a while, Yungun and Mr Thing provide three great new tracks on this lead single for the forthcoming LP ‘Grown Man Business’. As the Motown flavoured ‘Forget Me Not’ kicks in, there’s a moment of worry that YG will be doing his slightly tired ladies man thing, but what unfolds is great, with lines of uplifting and music career reflecting thought. ‘Grown Man Business’ has tons of energy and provides a very pacey tempo. It has live performance highlight written all over it and provides a nice contrast to the slower tracks either side of it on the release. ‘This Is Who We Be’ concludes the outting with guest appearances by Yungun’s Dupa Styles partner Devise and once label mate Doc Brown. Mr Thing’s beat consists of a really nice stuttering violin and some great bass, which all lace with heavy verses. This is a great indication of the high quality we can expect from these guys’s forthcoming long player, which seems set to pick up where ‘The Essance’ left off.
