yU – On The Corner
Fresh on the heels of his solo debut release, Before Taxes, yU of critically acclaimed Diamond District is back with his latest remix, “On The Corner,” featuring EyeQ. Produced byDJ Lord Jazz from Lords Of The Underground, yU’s funk infused remix features a boom bap saxophone creeping up on a straight drumbeat, all while maintaining his classic hip-hop vibe. Complimenting the rhythmic beats, yU explains, “EyeQ and I both liked the sample, ‘Standing on the corner,’ so we decided to build the track’s concept around that.” He continues, “We painted the picture of all the things you’d see.”
EyeQ attacks each verse with his hard-hitting rhymes, followed by yU’s southern drawl to bring the two together for the catchy chorus. The perfect track to play on repeat in your car, yU and EyeQ narrate a drive down the streets of the DMV. The duo throws a curveball as “On The Corner” comes to a close with an a cappella chorus and sirens blaring — better stay off those corners, the police are out on the prowl.
