Round Two: Ring the Bell @ypmusiclive

By Eric N. Boston @EricBoston3 | June 24, 2021

I guess the wild weekend wasn’t enough for YP aka Young Paul.

On Wednesday (June 23, 2021), the New York emcee made this announcement on Twitter:

That’s NOT Christian Podcast responded with the question, “Wait, another one??”

For those of you who may have missed it, YP dropped a record titled Duck, Duck Friday on his YouTube. In the song, he took shots at several of CHH’s more popular artists. The response was pretty much what you would expect. If you missed it, check out our coverage here.

It is apparently actually “Diss Season” in CHH.

Well, YP put out yet another record Holy Smoke. He did say that round two would take things up a notch.

“If they don’t respond to this one, they can never put tough, competitive, boastful bars in their songs again.” – YP

YP said that Duck, Duck was a challenge. Think of it as a writing exercise. But clearly, the gloves are off with Holy Smoke. The YouTube description simply states “Indie Tribe DISS record (round 2)”.

Holy Smoke! happens to be the title of a record on Indie Tribe’s newest project ‘UPPERHAND’ as well as their upcoming festival next month. Nothing appears off-limits, which may not be a good thing.

Plenty of people have accused CHH of looking more and more like its mainstream counterpart. Is this simply the next evolution of that process? Is the space in a tailspin? The reactions to this latest drop could say a lot. To this point, Indie Tribe has not responded outside of social media postings (primarily from Mykael V). Will there be the response on wax that YP appears to be looking for?

We are here to report, plain and simple.

Will this type of approach hurt CHH more than it helps? How do you view it? What do you think of the record?
