Yo Dot - Never Shines

Tags: Yo Dot , Lyrical

Thanks to the short winter days, Yo Dot‘s hometown has been looking a little gloomy lately. But the Milwaukee rhymesayer isn’t tripping—after all, he came up in the streets where the sun Never Shines. On this newly-released loosie, an outtake from his forthcoming EP, the artist reminisces about a childhood on the wrong side of the tracks. With Regular Joe Productions’ icy keyboard loops as his canvas, Dot describes his growth from a young’n stealing bikes on the Southside to a full-fledged (and eventually incarcerated) hustler. On the back, he offers a few words of hope and encouragement to friends who are still in the joint. While Never Shines, as mentioned above, won’t be included Dot’s next project, it should leave fans even more excited for what did make the cut. Featuring November’s reader-acclaimed I’m on It and much more, A Winter’s Ration is scheduled for digital release January 22.
