When The Creator finished concocting this track he titled it “Yonkers” because it sounded to him like his version of what vintage 90s New York rap sounds like. Yes the kick drums snap like Da Beatminerz, the looming baseline is dark and deadly, and, of course, Tyler had to thrust some chunky chords on top for good measure. Notorious for refusing to officially release his instrumentals, the OF leader couldn’t stop MCs like Styles from adding their 16s. Hey it’s his hometown, buddy. He gets a pass.
