yU – Before Taxes
Not really a new joint by any means – it was somewhat recently rereleased on Mello Music, after previously being a free release – but I’d like to expose it some, plus I’ve been feeling it lately. Beat and rhymes. It’s really pretty simple. yU is from the dope DMV representative Diamond District (who dropped a crazy album not long ago.) Not much need for any more typing. Nice spots (rapping or production) by Kev Brown, the 1978ers, Balil Salaam, EyeQ, Oddisee, etc. Got two videos today, one of them a dope instrumental. For sale now at the Mello Music bandcamp site. Still cheaper than iTunes.
