While Y-Love’s ‘See Me’ EP is influenced as much by rap vet Chuck D as by new artists like Major Lazer and Nicki Minaj, “All We Bring” a jazzy, soulful track off the EP sounds like it takes more cues from Louis Armstrong and the Golden Era of hip hop than the other world-club tracks.

Curious about the full EP? check this review from ThisisBook’sMusic. The opening track is a great mixture of hip-hop, pop, R&B, and dancehall. I’m a fan of Y-Love but he just upped things with a song that opens fans to his world once again, one that speaks of culture, self, spirituality, and how this is unified through his music. See Me is a 6-song EP that is a way to get to know Y-Love a bit better if you haven’t before. The most surprising song is the title track, with the kind of hook that would be perfect for mainstream attention but when he opens up with a wide range of modern tech references, you realize it’s nothing more than a pathway towards the wisdom he has become to be known for.
As for his words, they are not heady nor do they pound people with the good word. Nonetheless, you can’t help but hear him and realize he’s all about the good of not just hip-hop, but life and of course himself. “All We Bring” and “This Is Unity” will be favored by fans of early 90′s hip-hop and those who want something a bit more on the eclectic side. It makes me wish more hip-hop was this daring and honest.
