Her versatility on this project gives you a taste of everything from drill to R&B as she delivers a solid 8-track EP with no skips.
Brooklyn-raised with Trinidadian roots, Young Devyn has been rapping since she was 7 years old and would perform at her school’s talent shows where she caught many by surprise. One thing led to another and Young Devyn was already in demand as a kid as she had people calling her school asking to book her and that’s where it all began. So although this is only her second project make no mistake-she is not new to this.
Baby Goat 2 was released on September 23rd, the same day she took the stage at Rolling Loud for the second time in her career. In a recent interview with Girls United, she spoke on how she truly manifested her first performance & what she planned to bring to the second one,
“I always dreamt of performing at Rolling Loud. I tell people this all the time-I used to leave school early, go home, go in my room, put my headphones on, and act like I would be performing at Rolling Loud. To manifest that and perform in my room to physically perform on the stage, was such a mind-boggling experience for me last year. I was more so caught up in that. Regardless, the performance was amazing, but I feel like I got it now. I’m comfortable. People know my face. It’s just going to be a good time.”Young Devyn Interview with Girls United
Once again she proved her manifestation skills to be true because her set was nothing but a good time. Her energy was undeniably contagious, and she had the crowd’s attention, it was the perfect way to introduce her new project.
The EP includes solid features from artists such as Fivio Foreign, Kenzo B, and Capella Grey who each brought exactly what they needed to on each track. She comes in hot on the first 3 tracks opening up with “All Gifted” with a title that needs no explanation, followed by “Rap Sheet” featuring Kenzo B, followed by her single “Decisions.” She slows it down and shows off her vocals on tracks such as “Toxic,” “Cruise Control” featuring Capella Grey, and “Real Love.”
We also can’t fail to mention the track “Outside” that Fivio Foreign asked to hop on which was released a week before her EP and ended up being a hit. She then closes it out with the track “How I Did It” as she reflects on what she’s been through to make it to this point.
Overall the talent, versatility, and hunger are there, and you can hear it. If she hadn’t done so already, Young Devyn has just proved she is one of the hottest ones out by releasing this project.
