Yung Byrds and BiGBODYFIJI • BiGBODYBYRDS
Yung Byrds and BiGBODYFIJI have released a new collab project, BiGBODYBYRDS. Providing previously released tracks between the two such as “Suh Dood” and “AcnejeanStuntin” alongside their newer creations. With their energetic flow and new wave sound, each song seems to adopt influence from popular culture yet continue to maintain their own individuality.
Reminiscent of early Odd Future (OFWGKTA), the duo’s use of sound bites from shows such as “Rick and Morty” and “Dexter’s Laboratory” is just a reminder that music can be made for fun, and carefree. Falling in line more with the new generation of rappers than their musical elders, Yung Byrds and BiGBODYFIJI’s spirit is embedded into their music and their audience can’t help but feel the amusement and entertainment they must have had while creating BiGBODYBYRDS. Each track channels its own separate vibe, where “DecentBoyzWorldwide” has a heavy focus on stylizing their lyricism, backed with flute instrumentals mixed with an infectious beat. Meanwhile, “Blitz 17’” has a heavy influence from drill music, mixing up deliveries and laying ad-libs throughout the track.
Each song is graced with a unique sound and demonstrates the versatility of the duo and their creativity with exploring new paths for their art. Chicago’s underground scene continues to develop innovative and gifted individuals, where Yung Byrds and BiGBODYFIJI are no exception.
