Audio: Yung Beef – “Problemas Musicales” ft. Uzii Gaang
Produced by DP Beats (Playboi Carti, Chief Keef), “Problemas Musicales” is the Latest Single From the Granada Native’s El Plugg 2 Mixtape, Coming April 16th via EMPIRE
“Beef’s geographically diverse sound is unapologetic, with piercing, incisive lyrics over trap beats fused with reggaetón, salsa and more besides, and characterised by its shout-outs to various fashion brands. That all makes sense, as Beef has become a poster boy for labels like Calvin Klein and Givenchy.” – Dazed
“His swaggering aesthetic would come across as crass was it not for the quality of the music – a powerful crossroads that sees the sweaty sounds of Caribbean dembow and reggaeton collide with contemporary hip-hop.” – Highsnobiety
“Yung Beef is without a doubt one of the hottest artists coming up from overseas right now. The young Spanish rapper has been creating a buzz in Spain for a while, and is now starting to catch looks over here in America.” – Lyrical Lemonade
“One of the 25 artists shaping the future of music…A flagbearer for the new Spanish sound…Pulling his biggest tunes off YouTube, deleting releases and dropping projects by surprise have all fed into the cult status around him, while the music sounds equally unpolished, unpredictable and sporadic.” – Crack
Garnering 70M+ total streams worldwide on four projects in 2020, Yung Beef has become one of Spain’s biggest rappers without ever pandering to the mainstream. Coming through with a room-enveloping trap banger, Yung Beef shares “Problemas Musicales,” his latest single. Produced by SoundCloud sound architect DP Beats, known for producing wavy bangers for artists like Lil Uzi Vert and Chief Keef, “Problemas Musicales” is an immersive bit of cloud trap, as Yung Beef and his La Venedicion artist Uzii Gaang toe tag seismic blasts of 808s with effortlessly fly flows. Together, the two rappers demonstrate why they’re a problem whenever they connect on a track, projecting a DGAF attitude that transcends language barriers. “Problemas Musicales” is the second standout track from Yung Beef to emerge in recent weeks, following the reggaeton-influenced, Dragonball Z-referencing single and video “Majin Vegeta,” which reached over one million views on YouTube in less than a week.
“Problemas Musicales” and “Majin Vegeta” are both singles from El Plugg 2, the Granada-born artist’s upcoming project. The sequel to Yung Beef’s 2018 El Plugg Mixtape, which featured production from Mexiko Dro, El Plugg 2 was widely acclaimed for its combination of sounds, mixing elements of Punk and alt-rock with trap music, earning over 21 million streams worldwide. Spanning 24-tracks and featuring frequent production partners like PipoBeats and Kid Favela, El Plugg 2 is a testament to Yung Beef’s restless creativity, painting the fullest picture yet of his wide-ranging artistic tastes and talents. The upcoming project features contributions from Goa, who connected with Beef for “Guns N Roses” on the original El Plugg, and most notably Pablo Chill-E, a frequent collaborator of Yung Beef and one of the hottest rappers in South America. El Plugg 2 arrives on April 16th via La Venedicion / EMPIRE and is currently available for pre-order.
Filtering genres such as trap and reggaeton through his rebellious perspective, Yung Beef is turning heads in Spain and beyond for his intoxicating blend of sounds. The prolific artist releases four projects in 2020, includingShishi Plugg, a collaborative project with Pablo Chill-E that featured the single “No Nos Pueden Suportar“ (the first song by a Spanish rapper to gain more than 1 million views on the WorldStarHipHop YouTube channel), and Sonrisas, which featured production from Brodinski and a guest spot from 645AR. The Spanish icon had a busy live schedule planned for 2020, before the pandemic hit, including a duo spot at Lollapalooza Chile with Pablo Chill-E, and his own curated stage at Primavera Sound in Barcelona. Expect Yung Beef to pick up where he left off with these festivals in 2022.
With El Plugg 2, Yung Beef plans to emulate his idol Young Dolph and make waves in the American rap scene as an independent artist. Don’t bet against him.
