New music from yU off the album The Earn. Which you need to get now if you haven’t already.
Time Machine which is a sort of a retrospective song on life, family, and experiences growing up. The song is produced by Unknown & yU and features Drew Kid on the keys and DJ 2Tone on the cuts. The end of Time Machine transitions into the songRemember U which employs the vocal talents of Bilal Salaam & Danedra Rowell on the hook. Remember U is produced by yU himself and he describes it as “uptempo, bouncy…elements of old & new with oohs & ahhs that are 50’s and 60’s-ish.”
After their performance at The Black Cat in D.C., the hip-hop powerhouse known as Diamond District sat down with us to talk about where they’ve been, what they’ve been up to, and what you can expect from their next album, “March on Washington”.
Today, enjoy the non-album bonus cut from yU “Can’t Hide” (ft. EyeQ) produced by Slimkat78. Slimkat78’s production features vocal sample and chopped up horns while yU and guest MC, EyeQ, trade verses. The combination between yU, EyeQ, and Slimkat78 seems effortless while yU and EyeQ’s chemistry is undeniable.
