Words by LargeUp Crew—
Born in St. Thomas, Jamaica, raised in Toronto and based between T-Dot and NYC, Melodic Yoza has a sound that takes equal parts from reggae, soul and hip-hop. Perhaps you’ve caught his tune “Ride On Natty,” which was featured on an episode of Jersey Shore recently.
For his latest project, the Jam Ya Jazzy EP, Yoza has added some jazz to his recipe. “We Got Love” blends jazz and the aforementioned genres in a style that reminds us of a young Mos Def, in his Black Star/Black on Both Sides days. Sample it below, hear the whole EP here, and tell us what you think in the comments.
