Diamond District’s yUthe78er has been one of Mello Music Group’s best kept secrets. As a soloist, yU made one of the best Hip-Hop songs about Native American heritage in “Natives,” and gave Heads hope in “Fine.” In “Never Burning Out,” one of the rare songs released by the Washington D.C. MC/producer in 2014, he immortalizes his late father with class and style. This is powerful Hip-Hop…

With the song, the leader of the 1978ers wrote, “I dedicate this song to my father, Michael Willingham Sr., who just passed on Fathers Day. The song kinda reminds me of how he’d break things down to me. Of how he didn’t exactly understand my world, being 18 years older than I, but by principle, we still found things that we could relate on. As people, we all are different, but still very similar when u get to the root of things.”
