Yo Dot - The Separation

Posted about 3 years ago
Tags: Yo Dot
Producer:
Lib Gibson

When ranking emcees, one finds that many of them are interchangeable. The difference between them often seems minimal or nonexistent. The Separation between Yo Dot and your average emcee? Let’s just say just say you’d need a sizable bridge to span the distance between them. Just listen to his command of the mic and tell me he isn’t light years ahead of the competition. As Lib Gibson’s poignant beat, driven by a sped-up vocal sample, blasts, Yo Dot gets introspective, sharing a gritty look at life in the Milwaukee streets. Despite the serious subject matter, his approach is hardened, exhibiting a tough-as-nails delivery and a commanding, gritty flow. The Separation is not part of the project, but those who like what they’re hearing are highly encouraged to check out Yo Dot’s DJBooth-hosted Sherman Park Memoirs LP.

Update: The Separation is no longer available for stream.
