Last time I heard bars from Yesi (pronounced Yay-si) was on the excellent Ash Thomas Ascension Mixtape where he featured on two tracks, Yes Im Back and True Story. His newest song off his upcoming album independent album “Coronation” is a joy to listen to as he flows effortlessly over and excellent production dropping gems. Definitely going to be looking froward to more material from Yesi. You can listen to the track below. His album is scheduled for release May 25 2010. The Official video for GRA is also scheduled to be released in May.

Newcomer rapper Yesi releases G.R.A (Gidi Reserved Area) off upcoming independent album Coronation. Born and raised in the historic Nigerian city of Ibadan, Yesis education took him to Orlando, Florida, and eventually New York City where he currently resides. Yesi seamlessly blends 3 languages- English, Yoruba and Pidgin (Broken English) – delivering impressive lyrics over heart thumping Hip-Hop beats.
On G.R.A, Yesi switches up the definition of the acronym from Government Reserved Area to Gidi Reserved Area. In words, “Historically in Nigeria, Government Reserved Areas represent neighbourhoods reserved for the wealthy and connected. Gidi (Home) denotes the inclusivity that invites everyone to partake of that which is Yesi Music.
