New Mikkey - "Boss" and "Yes Yes"

Chicago rapper Mikkey posted two new songs on his MySpace page, a track titled "Boss". On the short track, driven by a minimalist beat, keyboards, and lyrically depicting personal excess and pain, Mikkey sounds not unlike his fellow Chicago rapper Rhymefest. "Yes Yes", like many other rap songs, celebrates conspicuous consumption and the rapper's own desire to make the Joneses his bitch. The hook-heavy synth line is quite appealing though, and Mikkey's second verse manages to stand up against some of Kanye's better verses. Interestingly enough, both of the tracks contain references to Barack Obama.

Listen to "Boss" and "Yes Yes" over at the Mikkey MySpace Page.
