In the emerging musician Yeek's new visual for his single "I'm Not Ready" he and his boys hang around an empty Los Angeles pool. They mostly skate, sit on the rim drinking Hennessy, and hype Yeek. He raps, Have you seen a girl twerk to Fall Out Boy? / She's a lonely girl with all them toys, then coos, stringing his guitar, I'm not ready for love / I'm having too much fun. It's a moment that captures the laid-back breeziness of 20-somethings falling in and out of love. The video, directed by Christian Long, explores love in many forms: there are the platonic vibes of Yeek and the homies kick-pushing through LA, the passion of two partners kissing in a dimly lit room, and the raw intimacy of the singer-rapper realizing a kind of self-love in admitting that he's not ready for romance. (Yeek opens the video acerbically: We created the word love to understand the concept that can't be fully understand. The word I used to understand it is hurt, confusion, and being fucking stressed.)

"I'm Not Ready" is one track off of Yeek's first album, Love Slacker. "The album is my personal world," says the 26-year-old who produced the beats, sings, and raps on the project. "It's all thoughts and feelings about how I feel about the subject of love." Like music right now, the record isn't concerned with the limits of genre. "I like to say it's experimental indie punk with hip-hop undertones," says Yeek. "I like to think of my sound as something new, like a new genre." On "I'm Not Ready" alone the New Jersey native displays: the narrative lyrical style of Ice Cube's "It Was A Good Day," a playful punk aesthetic in the instrumentation, the subtle dramatics of emotive hardcore, and the silkiness of 90s R&B. We catch up with Yeek to have him expound on love and his sound, and get an exclusive look at the "I'm Not Ready" video. ––VICE
