Believe it or not, after 65 bazillion years and a few handfuls worth of great solo tracks, Young Chris' solo debut Alive is actually coming out. Soon. Supposedly. As with the highlights that have shown up thus far, "Blackout" pretty much defines his lane, which is firmly entrenched in vintage Roc sound (whoa we just said "vintage" about a style that was prevalent less than ten years ago—thanks internet!). Idiosyncratic voices and pure rapping to the point that this could be acapella and it would still sound strong.
