Yung Mal – Dollar Signs
The Kappa-produced “Dollar Signs” follows the same formula as the other songs he’s been putting out recently, but there’s nothing underwhelming about it. Most of the Atlanta rapper’s tracks are capped off around the two-minute mark. The third verse has been largely discarded in today’s rap, as artists opt for tight-knit bundles that can keep a listener’s attention for a single play or recycle in a hypnotic loop. Yung Mal’s deadpan delivery and controlled flows allow his two-minute snacks to be extended into a ten-minute meal if one wishes. His confident demeanour is palpable and it lends his cold-blooded bars even more weightiness to anchor the song.
