Hip-hop purists may hate what the kids are liking these days, but you can't deny the power of the youth. And in our city the youth seem to be gravitating toward the Moi Yo Yoi Boiz out of Aurora. The trio, who formed in 2007, recently dropped a new mixtape with DJ Strangah called Dress Code, with appearances from Hypeman P and LG. While the project is gaining a bit of traction, the song that seems to be getting the most attention is "Popular," a track that basically deals with the primary thing kids are trying to achieve -- popularity. That's what high school is all about, right? The group's album, Fashionably Late, is due sometime in the next few months. But in the meantime check out "Popular" and download the mixtape after the jump.
