Product Details


Music is an exchange of ideas. This album is something for those exhausted with the shuck and jive of pop culture, who believe in the purification rituals offered by hard snares, funky drum kicks, soul-coughing bass, and deeply rooted vibrations.

Steadfastly infusing their songs with spirituality and positivity, yU and Slimkat are everymen with preternatural talent. Over the years, they've tirelessly built a rep in the DMV, collaborating on yU's The Earn and Before Taxes, which OkayPlayer called "one of the best hip-hop albums released in the last few years." In 2009, yU released In the Ruff as the philosophical heart of super-group Diamond District, a record hailed by MTV as "arguably the best hip-hop ever released in D.C."

Slimkat supplies the beats that make the blood rush to your head. Named one of the best producers of 2010 by, he's dished countless production dimes to the likes of Muhsinah, Eric Roberson, Diamond District, and more.

The People of Today is a seamless and head-spinning record. It's hard-boiled beats and raps laced with wisdom and virtue. The sort of record that you can sit with today and tomorrow, and any time you need to be reminded that we're all in this together.

Comment: Straight up an amazing album. It just feels like music. Hard for me to explain, but sometime these days it's like guys are putting decent beats and raps down, but it doesn't feel like music. This record though comes on and feels like something anyone can like if they are in the right mind frame. Heavy work, I think it will prove itself to be a personal favorite.

Comment: This album is hip-hop on a high level, if you are into hardcore, punch you in the face raps, complex raps, this may also fit your description. Even though it's not hardcore, it hits hard and yU is a good spitter, spits with a message and ZERO preachiness, just focused hip-hop.

Comment: LOL!!! UGHH wrote in the description that some are calling this AOTY! HUH?!?! Are we listening to the same sh*t?? There isn't ONE, I mean ONE banger on this whole album! I listened to this and immediately threw it in the trash after! Sh*t is horribly average!

Comment: Coming in I knew this was going to be solid, but wow I'm totally blown away by this release. Slimkat's beats meld perfectly with yU's high intensity flow. However, the album comes across as a very laidback and complete effort. Some of the best hip-hop this year, without a doubt.
