yU has been busy getting his new album The EARN ready for its December 13th release. But not too busy to scare up a new joint for Halloween. The song is titled Disturbed and features B. Jamelle. Disturbed serves as a slight dose of the mood you'll find on the upcoming Killer project to be released thru Mello Music Group in of October 2012.
Disturbed is the result of watching a whole lotta sci fi/horror joints and loving how the stories played on your senses. yU heard the beat (produced by Usef Dinero) and was reminded of waking up from a dream that he didn't quite understand, feeling all shook up.
"Serial killer flick, watching.. Maybe I should turn / Or do I like the sight of blood, maybe I'm disturbed"
The song is produced by Usef Dinero, a very dope cat from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - who also produced a song on yU's upcoming album The EARN, called "Write On". Folks should stay on the lookout for an upcoming project from Usef & yU called "Flying High." Disturbed also features vocalist B.Jamelle - who was able to match the songs mood perfectly, with some haunting oohs & ahhs. She is also finishing up an EP w/ yU's 1978ers' partner Slimkat78.

URBNET Records Press/Radio Update - October 28, 2011
This press release is in 3 parts.
i. D-Sisive | Run With The Creeps | available November.15.2011.
In the beginning, I set out to make a commercial record. I wanted to be on the radio. I wanted to see my name on charts. I wanted to receive Socan cheques higher than $8.00. I didn't want to be rich, but...I wanted to be rich. And famous. I made a list of catchphrases that would make amazing call and response choruses.
.Talk To The Hand. .News (not the weather). .One Day At A Time. .A Friend With Weed Is A Friend Indeed. .When I Say ___, You Say ___!
I wrote songs directed towards DJs about DJs playing my favourite songs so I can dance all night.
It was all coming together. Then I accidentally hit delete and it was all gone. As usual, I was depressed again. Then I wrote this album.
Prepare to be depressed with me on November 15th.

While Saukrates remains hard at work putting the finishing touches on a string of new music and singles, which will culminate with the release of his album Season One, early next year, the Canadian rapper/producer is excited to have partnered with Nike, lending his song "Say I" to the sportswear brand's Always On campaign, a six-episode video series aimed at highlighting the lifestyles of select Nike athletes. While other artists involved include Vado, Stalley, and more, Saukrates and his "Say I" single provide the soundtrack for a day-in-the-life of Montreal Canadiens hockey player P.K. Subban.
Only one full season into his professional career in the NHL, P.K. Subban has already earned a reputation as one of the sport's most exciting young talents, and it's more than likely that the defenseman's road to success followed a storyline very similar to the one told in Saukrates' "Say I." The song, driven forward by beating drums and ambient piano keys, plays as an anthem for perseverance as Saukrates sings on the hook, "I can do what I wanna/ And make you a believer, hear you say I/ From stadium to street corner/ I'll make you a believer, make you say I." The verses follow suit, with Saukrates weaving tales of hard work and dedication, all with the single-minded goal of self-improvement. "That little kid get a pass/ He do it on the field, and he doing it in class," begins Saukrates, "See his homeroom teacher always put him on blast/ Saying, 'Hard work'll pay off, lay off ain't an option."
