yU – “If U Down”

Damn it was less than a week ago when D.C. producer & emcee yU dropped “A Garbage Beattape” of instrumentals that was far from basura, but the brother just blessed the real heads with the first single to his upcoming album “The Earn” which is due to drop on Mellow Music Group on December 13th.  This is the second solo album from the D.C. native following his debut album “Before Taxes”. Like we said before in a previous post, yU is an ill emcee & underrated producer as a soloist outside of his group Diamond District, but this time he enlists his homie SlimKat78 on the production duties.  Peep out the banger below…
