When you clean and prep for Passover, don’t forget the ultimate primer, this classic Rap & Beat Box album, Sefira, made for the time when some Jews refrain from listening to live music – Y-Love and beatbox superstar, Yuri Lane create all their music non-instrumentally.
The album, produced by Diwon, is an all vocal hip-hop record with over seven tracks to correspond to the seven weeks of the Sefira (Passover-Shavuot). The album is amazingly musical and innovative, with a bangin’ intro and an outro that will make it hard to believe that Yuri Lane’s mouth wasn’t being produced by Timbaland.
The first single, “Watch” is about keeping the history of the Passover alive. Every year the Jewish Nation leaves Egypt; from exile to one step closer to redemption. G-dly things happening – Watch!
