yU's superb new album The Earn

If you are a regular reader of CRDS then you will know how much of a fan of and how much I admire the consistent and high quality output of the Mello Music Group label...well kids they have done it yet again, as if hitting us off with these dope albums wasn't enough...



Plus a few previously released albums that were offered as free downloads (Oddisee's 101 and Mental Liberation with exclusive bonus tracks and remixes) and Oddisee's collection of his season based EP's in the form of Odd Seasons and ill remixes from the likes of Def Dee, Gensu Dean and Dunc (DTMD) for various artists (Boog Brown, Roc Marciano etc).

We now get MC and producer and member of Diamond District and 1978rs, follow up album to 2010's dope Before Taxes..

The Earn is a superb album and a great listen from start to finish, you can tell (as with all MMG releases) that so much heart, passion and soul went into creating this album, the rhymes from yU are thoughtful and dope and the production handled by yU, Kev Brown, Slimkat78, DJ Roddy Rod (Maspyke), Usef Deniro, Unknown and others will definitely leave smiles on all kinds of faces as well.

I honestly don't know what is in the DMV's water, but to me they are the true home of Hip Hop in today's age, no gimmicks, no materialistic raps, no auto-tune, no cheesy synths, no wearing of stupid wigs or jeggings, no posing, no wannabes, no shock factor raps and best of all no lame attention seeking due to a lack of skill...nope MMG just offers the listener no frills, pure Hip Hop music, made by passionate and genuine artists that live and breathe Hip Hop and are carrying the torch to take Hip Hop to a right place into the future.
