yU Instrumental 2-Pack "Almost Time" And "Lunchin'"

In Celebration Of Vinyl And Instrumental Release yU Leaks A 2-Pack Of Instrumentals From Before Taxes

The Songs:

After the success of his solo album, Before Taxes, yU of Diamond District is proud to release two instrumentals from the album for consumption, "Almost Time" and "Lunchin'." Following the trend of many artists, yU wanted to give aspiring rappers the chance to spit rhymes over a couple of mastered tracks. "Almost Time" serves as a standard for rappers with a straight drumbeat, swelling horns, repeating guitar vamp, and spoken ad-libs inserted to push the song forward. "Lunchin'" requires a more interpretive verse with its spoken introduction, popping drums, electronic sounds, and synthesizer induced vamp. The Before Taxes album is available in vinyl through Fat Beats, with a bonus track from fellow Diamond District member, Oddisee, and a digital copy of Before Taxes Instrumentals is available for purchase on iTunes.

Don't forget to get your copies today via Mello Music Group.
