YG signed a deal with Interscope in 2016 for his record label 4Hunnid, less than a year after launching it independently, and he's been slowly showcasing the rest of the roster ever since. Producer-turned-singer-songwriter Mitch is the latest to make his debut, having previously appeared on tracks with YG such as "IDGAF" and "I Ain't Lyin." With his full-length debut, SPACE, Mitch is showing everyone what YG saw in him when he brought him along for his Fuck Donald Trump Tour.
Across 14 tracks, Mitch introduces his sound atop production from Hymnbeats, Swish, yaboyNOIS, Cardiak, B Korn, and some of his own beats, too. Fans of 6LACK and Ty Dolla Sign will definitely find something to like here, with Mitch finding a spaced-out sound somewhere between rap and hazy R&B. "This project," Mitch said in a statement, "is about me having to choose between love and my career... SPACE is my inner battle."
It's exactly the type of nocturnal R&B that's perfect for an after-hours party, with immediate highlight and single "Jersey" exemplifying why. YG pops up twice, with a filthy verse on "Ima Dog" and a more low-key appearance on "She Don't Lose." The Los Angeles-based, Houston-born, Phoenix-raised artist proudly mixes all the surroundings he's known throughout his life, making for an impressive debut.
