Slightly dated production
Yung Reno is a talented rap artist born and raised in the gritty streets of Queens NY. He creates good solid rap music with real-life experiences of growing up in crime ridden neighborhoods. With the upcoming release of his new album “Long Live the King,” Yung Reno is ready to set the rap world on fire. His skill and talent are evident on the single “Boulevard Music.”
On this track, Yung Reno combines laid-back, chill beats with blazing rhymes and a great hook singer. He knows how to rap and to keep the feeling easy-going with his smooth tone of voice. He raps about riding down the boulevard in his ride with the top down and the wind blowing. He rides along without a care in the world at that moment, becuase all the stresses of life don’t matter at that moment. All that matters is the music blasting on the radio, the sun shining, and his girl in the passenger seat. Reno talks about taking care of this woman– treating her right and showing her what a real man is made of. Then singer Nicole Renee comes in with the chorus, adding spice to the song with her great voice. Her voice sounds a lot like Rihanna’s, which gives the song a current, fresh vibe. This works out well, since the “gangsta-rap” type beat in the background sounds a bit dated. But this does give the song a nostalgiac feel to it, bringing to mind classics by Snoop Dogg or Dr. Dre. “Boulevard Music” is a respective rap song with all the classic ingredients one would expect. Yung Reno understands what good rap music consists of, and this particular track is a shining example.
“Boulevard Music” is a great song to listen to while cruising down the street in the summertime, windows down and subwoofers working overtime. It had a lazy, Californian feel to it, and the lyrics are perfect for road trips during the warm summer months. Yung Reno has a lot of talent, and hopefully we will be seeing more great music from him in the future.
