“Tol’ U So” F. yU, Oddisee & Fat Trel

    Uptown XO, who previously went by just X.O., is slated to release his latest project, Monumental II, at the end of the month. If it’s anything like his previous efforts, we can expect a well-executed mixture of bravado and intellect. “Tol’ U So” is a fine example of XO’s ability to blend subject matter and, just as important, pick good-ass beats. This one comes via frequent collaborator AB the Pro, who laced the posse cut with strings and sporadic vocal samples. As if that wasn’t enough, XO is joined by his Diamond District cohorts, yU and Oddisee, and fellow D.C. resident Fat Trel.
