G Yamazawa - 23 [FREE Download]

G Yamazawa is a Japanese American MC/Spoken word poet that was born in Durham, North Carolina.  He is a National Poetry Slam Champion and has been featured on ABC, NBC, NPR, PBS, and has toured over 200 universities all over the world. 

I first saw him featured in some Team Backpack videos and his slight southern drawl combined with his lyrical flow caught my attention right away.  Usually people are put off by spoken word poets but G makes the transition from poet to rapper so smoothly you start to wonder why it hasn't been done successfully more often.  His debut album "Shouts to Durham" is a concise banger that melds memorable hooks together with precise wordplay and should be immediately copped via iTunes or streamed via your preferred service.

The album might seem a bit short and it will definitely leave you wanting more, so you can head down to Yamazawa's Bandcamp to download his mixtape "23."  Released in 2014, 23 might not have songs as infectious as the ones found in his official debut, but the lyrics are definitely deadlier and more technical as G rhymes over previously released beats on this mixtape.  Download it for free (after signing up to his email list) at the link below and be on the lookout for this rising MC.
