Noname - Yesterday

Three years after she appeared on Chance the Rapper's track Lost, Noname has released her debut mixtape, Telefone. The Chicago poet is only 24 years old, but the tracks are filled with wisdom beyond her years. Yesterday sounds soft, thanks to her silky tone, but the subject matter is harsh. After a few bars, it becomes clear that this is a eulogy for a friend: When the sun is going down / When the dark is out to stay / I picture your smile / Like it was yesterday. We hope it's not another three years before we get to hear more of her work. The entire mixtape is available to stream for free, here
