New Music: YCee releases’ Quarantunes’ EP, Rema on ‘Simple Things’ and more

The EP has got production touches from WXLA and Byrm – Midf (Money I Dey Find) finds Ycee being tunnel-visioned, staccato punchlines as he raps about making money while Tell Nobody drops considerably in tempo, a slow groove number courting his love interest to stay with him.
