Single: yU ft. Dev Duff - I Believe (prod. by Charlie Ross)

MLK Day came and went, I spent most of it toiling through university courses I should've completed well over a decade ago... yU spent it blessing us with a track off his new album "The Earn" that you need a copy of...like now...

Track that features excellent talent all around in Dev Duff and Charlie Ross on the beat and strikes a certain, special cord with me lyrically.. Below you'll find some words from yU on the great man that inspired to let this one loose and continues to inspire him now:

Today’s a special day in remembrance of a man that resembled the spirit of a leader at a time where many just followed suit & went with the tide. Another example of how powerful the spoken word can be, changing the lives of many by something as simple as a thought; amplified by the tone of his voice. When iIm onstage, sometimes I think of Martin & Malcolm. I think of how they fueled their supporters with inspiration to push forward. I wrote “I Believe” at a time when I myself was going thru a lot, and was trying to fine tune my focus. Somehow after talking to my creator, & Charlie Ross (who lived in Okinawa, Japan at the time), I was given the music & this is what came from it. – yU
