We've been riding for DG Yola basically forever, had pretty much accepted that his album would never come out, and were keeping the music we do have on repeat and watching the Youtube videos of dude having more fun freestyling than like 90% of rap to keep us happy. Luckily, the rumor mill tells us the album still has legs, and now we also have Mr Singh, who has been throwing events that pair dudes we like to put on our covers (Killer Mike and Sleepy Brown) with go-go bands. Last week Yola performed with the XO Band and it sounds like he decimated the stage. if you're skeptical, download some of the live recordings below or watch the rehearsal video we posted about here, and hit the next event this Friday with Joe Scudda, Joi, PJ Morton, and the XO Band at Django (495 Peachtree St.) in Atlanta.
