Chicago rapper YP has had a rough few weeks to say the least. In that span of time the 27-year-old MC lost his child and had several relatives involved in a hostage situation in Harvey, Il which made news last week. Ever one to persevere though, YP is back with his latest visual for "Stop" featuring fellow local, Twista and shot by D Gainz. The loss and hostage situation come at a precarious time for YP, who has been ramping up promotion around his upcoming project, Backwood Jones for the last month and a half. To be sure, his struggles mirror those of the city he represents: gritty and heartless with a penchant at times to take. Yet, just like the city he's from YP makes a point to continue grinding in the face of adversity. With all that he's seen in the past few weeks, I doubt he's sweating the release at all. Shouts out to YP for rocking the Leaders 1354 hoodie in the video below, watch for yourself and pick up Backwood Jones, out tomorrow!
