Over the summer southland emcee Cookbook collaborated with DJ Rhettmatic to release The Phantom Menace, the first installment of his mini album series, where he works with a different producer for each disc. With the year nearing an end, Cookbook teamed up with west coast emcee/producer extraordinaire Blu (of Blu & Exile) to release the second installment of series, YES.
Conceptually, the 8-track EP is about saying “yes” to opportunities with nothing to fear. Blu handles all the production while Cookbook offers his standard catchy hyped lyricism. Featured guests include Pigeon John, Frank Nitt, and Playdough.
“We all know that Blu is a gifted lyricist,” notes Cookbook. “This EP will solidify his status as a great producer as well. His soulful beats really inspired me to try different styles.”
