Yury – “Life Is.”

by Jon, 05.16.2017

While most Hip-hop artists today outsource for production, engineering, and even lyrics, Yury is a rare gem in New York’s music scene.

Originally hailing from Pittsburgh, Yury is a Hip-Hop artist, song-writer, producer and dj that now resides in Brooklyn. Similar to Atlanta’s Russ, Yury takes pride in being a one-stop shop, and doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.

From selling out Knitting Factory to co-headlining Webster Hall, and producing for Grammy award winning artists, Yury is gradually creating a name for himself. Arguably one of the most multitalented artists coming out of Brooklyn, Yury is constantly sharpening his unapologetically genuine sound. Influenced by a variety of Hip-hop acts including Big Sean, Dave East, and 6lack, Yury strives to be honest with his music.

Today, Yury treats listeners to a self-produced and introspective audio release titled “Life Is.” Yury wields a uniquely mundane flow while sharing plenty quotable lines throughout the song. Complimenting his piercing lyricism with a haunting chorus, “Life Is.” is a dark, yet hopeful ode to our daily lives.

“I made the beat first on this one. It all started ambiguous.. I added the kick, and more, and the sound became Hip-Hop. My only goal is to sit down and make music. My process is free flowing,” Yury claims.

“Life Is.” serves as a follow up to Yury’s previous trap-influenced track, “G Right Now” which currently sits at 20k on Soundcloud. His biggest song to date is “Growing Pains” (300k streams), which appeared on his 2016 project, entropy.
