After releasing Before Taxes as a free project in April 2009, yU revisited the album and changed things up a bit when he offered it as a proper release. Sound familiar? It should. He, Oddisee, and XO did the very same thing for their Diamond District record, In The Ruff. And now, the Maryland-based rapper-producer is again offering Before Taxes for free. But this time it’s the proper version of the album that dropped on Mello Music Group last year. Consider this a way to get prepared for his forthcoming sophomore release, The Earn, that’s apparently due out this fall.
