The Crystal – Nick Hook, Lao + Yoga Fire

Born July 21 2018.

When I first got to Mexico, Lao put me on to everything that was going on in Mexico as far as new rap. It blew my mind in one second.

A$ap Ferg was doing a show in CDMX and pulled a person out of the crowd to freestyle. The first guy got booed off the stage, and then he pulled Yoga Fire up. Yoga bodied it, like to another level, and they even gave him another verse – you can watch it here. I told Lao we had to work with him.

Yoga is a superhero, from another planet. We had a great session. He gave us gold.

One night we had a late meal at this Korean spot in Condesa and somehow we got to the fact that Yoga grew up on Company Flow, Camu Tao (RIP) and El-P. In other words, my family. A friendship was born.

Yoga owns a barbershop in El Centro. I finally made it down there to get a cut one day and not much later we ended up at the Homegrown studio. We played each other all of our stuff and some demos, and he asked me to mix and do some co-production on his upcoming album.

In February 2019, Yoga came to NYC for the first time and we mixed his album ‘Lazaro’ in my studio. Magical barely even describes it. We laughed together. We cried together. We finished together.

We shot the video for ‘The Crystal’ in a pool hall in El Centro late one night. If you wanna know how it went check my Airbnb review. He even decided to put me in the video for his track ‘D’calle’.

We got a million more tracks coming, but keep an eye out for a remix we did for Run The Jewels alongside Dee + Danny Brasco.


No maten el mood
Tamos Coolin

Pedir all nite

Busca la molly
Su religión es el party

Es hija de papi
Quiere perico de Cali

Joven rockstar el orgullo del block
Somos los duros gyal

We got enough to ask for it

Her religion it’s to party

It’s daddy’s girl
She wants coke from Cali ( Colombia)

That’s why money was made
Nothing it’s for free
That’s why money was made for
That’s why money was made for

I’m the whole pack
We the hardest out gyal
Others can’t front
A lotta floss
A lotta ho’s
I’m not Santa Claus
Untouchable as a ghost
As NAAFI I got the sauce

I’m one of a kind

Don’t believe the hype
Almost everything they said about me are lies
Max B , the Mexican way
Cause like a du-rag, I’m creating waves
Cmon mami do your thing

You got your face all blue

How much for it ?

How much do you need ?
How much do you got ?
