yU – “If U Down” | New Music

To say indie label Mello Music Group was having an impressive year this year would be an understatement. The indie label has put out countless releases this year that are for sure on several people’s best of the year list — Daily Bread’s self titled debut, Oddisee’s Rock Creek Park, Apollo Brown’s Clouds, and DTMD’s debut Makin Dollas. One more that will for sure be added to that list is the December 13th release from emcee yU.

yU’s sophomore solo album, Earn, is said to feature production from Kev Brown, Kokayi, Charlie Ross etc not to mention features from Bilal, Diamond District, Nicholas Ryan and Grant. Here is the first single from that project in the form of “If U Down,” featuring production from Slimkat78. This song is a pretty honest look into the life challenges the emcee has been going through, not to mention the destructive ways of the United States government, the power of prayer and honest living.
