If you read DG Yola’s official bio (found on his MySpace page), it states that his forthcoming debut album, Gutta World, will not simply be a “trunk rattling collection of hot beats and tight rhymes,” but rather “a handbook for self-determination.” Though plenty of artists probably feel the same way about their individual projects, not many have been shot in the face just months before their debut album was supposed to be released (well, besides one notable exception). On the new single, I Know U Like Dat, Yola does as his bio states and rhymes over producer C-Note’s ‘trunk-rattling beat,’ but lost in his hyper-flow is the first chapter of that handbook. The long-awaited release of Gutta World will take place on May 15.
