Diamond District's Oddisee is the kind of guy to see things through.

yU, one-third of the celebrated group Diamond District, recently released a new solo album, Before Taxes, released April 13th via Mello Music Group.
Constantly bombarded with what every artist/manager/publicist hopes is the next thing, I'm always looking for and listening to a healthy dose of boom-bap that may not agree with everyone's tastes. But I think anyone who listened to Diamond District's In The Ruff last year will cosign how thorough it was. Right on the heels of the group's critical acclaim, one part of the DD team, yU, has released his solo effort, Before Taxes, and it's ripe with similar sound patterns but perhaps more gritty & conscious lyrics.
We'd be slacking if we decided to do a series of showcases in the capital of the Peach State and not invite Donnis, the Atlanta Brave with the rugged flow to hold court with us.
