YN Jay continues his streak of off-kilter bangers with his latest. Last week, the Beecher, MI emcee unveiled “Lamar (You Can’t Stop The Reign),” a track that’s based on a main character from the Starz series “BMF” — which it itself based on brothers Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory’s Black Mafia Family drug empire. A scene from the show’s sixth episode (“Strictly Business”) saw Lamar Fields, played by Eric Kofi-Abrefa, singing Loose Ends’ 80’s hit “You Can’t Stop the Rain” before and after unceremoniously murdering his partner Slick, subsequently setting off a viral response on social media.
Following a short recording of the aforementioned scene, it’s over that same Loose Ends sample where YN Jay raps about real life struggles, street life, and current successes:
“You can’t stop the rain, money fix a lot of shit, but you can’t stop the pain, I just made a couple—damn, I just made a couple million dollars, I cannot complain, hood look the same since I left, but it’s not the same, fiend high as hell off fentanyl, it was not cocaine, I just blew a nigga block down, that was not propane, nigga, you don’t never get no pussy ‘cause you ain’t got no game…”
Much like last year, YN Jay has continued to deliver a wealth of music to his exponentially growing fanbase. He’s blessed us all with a couple of projects, January’s Ninja Warrior and July’s Coochie Chronicles, which saw assists from the likes of Coi Leray, Rio Da Yung OG, Sada Baby, Lil Yachty, RMC Mike, and frequent collaborator Louie Ray. In addition, Jay has liberated a lot of loose singles, including “Las Vegas,” “Smoove Back,” “Coochie In Class,” “Coochie Growl,” “Coochie Language,” “Drunk When I Made This,” and “Coochie Throbbin,” among many others.
