The seventeen-year-old North Dallas-native, Y Chibi, has been on fire this past year. After the independent release of his first project, ‘Pain-Tence’, Y Chibi has amassed hundreds of thousands of streams and a loyal following. This proves this young man is on his way to stardom. With his latest track, ‘Big Dawg’, he details his trials and tribulations as he navigates the streets with his bros. The song comes in with a melodic guitar and piano that’s subtly carried by an eerie ‘sci-fi’ synth. When the beat drops, Y Chibi comes in hot with a catchy hook filled with triumph, reflection, and determination.
I gotta stand tall
Even on that corner posted thinking that he can’t fall
We was starving with nothing, thinking we can’t ball
Y Chibi’s energy provides the raw pain, fire and passion that we need in music. Although still a teenager, life forced Y Chibi to become a man at a grown age and the maturity reflects in the music. It’s going to be a great year for him, keep your eyes peeled.
