yU, the DMV emcee and member of Diamond District and The 1978ers, is preparing for the release of his follow up to last years critically acclaimed Before Taxes. On December 13th, yU will release his sophomore album The EARN. To kick off his campaign yU has decided to show off of his skills as a producer by giving away a free 23 track instrumental project humorously titled “A Garbage Beat Tape.”
yU’s foray into production on “A Garbage Beat Tape” is nothing short of stellar. The wordsmith puts in work with ASR-XPro to produce a concept driven instrumental album on par with Prince Paul and Madlib productions. The project makes light of how seriously people can sometimes take things. “It’s a thin line between quality and garbage. It’s really up to each person to decide. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” says yU. Refuse recycled into royalty.
