An Abrupt Rap Style Emerging

Rio Da Yung OG

You probably haven’t even heard of Rio Da Yung OG before 2019, but now even Lil Yachty is joining the movement:

“Someone who embodies these attributes is Flint underground legend Rio Da Yung OG. The deadpan deity consistently crafts coldblooded punchlines within his verses for a ceaseless head-spinning experience. He’s like a car engine that can go 100 on the freeway without the presence of a brake pedal. The insults keep coming while the storytelling becomes more and more vivid by each bar.

Rio went on an unstoppable tear after being put on house arrest for drug charges in 2019, releasing seven projects in a 12-month span (those two “Dum and Dumber” mixtapes with RMC Mike included).”

A Rio collab with fellow Flint native Louie Ray is at 1.8ml views as of (Oct. 17, 2020)

Every bar that Teejay throws at us is a new take. isn’t here to argue that this new “one-liner” rap movement has its origins in Michigan, one thing that’s for certain is that such a claim is certainly subject to a real and longstanding debate.
