Before Taxes

Mello Music Group

Released: 19th April 2010 | 15 track alternative rap/hip-hop album
When it comes to creative, yU is the Native yU began garnering attention after his group effort with Diamond District (Oddisee, yU, & XO) began to take over underground best of lists in 2009 - including itunes #2 Best of Independent Hiphop 2009 & DJ Premier's Top 15 list, & Rolling Stone's 'Hype Monitor'. 'Before Taxes' is yU's debut solo effort and brings his stoic philosophical style of artistic Hiphop to the table over solidly constructed production from Oddisee, Kev Brown, Slimkat78, and himself. Gilles Peterson noticed his work last year and included the beautiful track 'Fine' on his 'Brownswood Bubblers Four'. Here, yU combines arthouse mentality, with the hard edges of the streets and thoughtful reflection of an old soul. The New Album Features: Finale, Bilal Salaam, Grap Luva, ERK, EyeQ, Omun, Op Swamp 81 Production: Kev Brown, Oddisee, SlimKat78, yU, Isabella Banneker
