YDot GDot Crowns Miss Universe

When he isn’t touring the country as a dj, setting the vibes for a party, or hosting the most positive events in the city, YDot GDot is doing what made him an entertainer in the first place: music. Overnight, Chicago’s favorite nerd delivered another anthem for the ladies entitled “Miss Universe.”

“Miss Universe” is a fun, uptempo, feel good track. YDot GDot joined forces with FBG Young and Josh Arce over a Malcolm Flex beat and the result sounds a lot like spring break.

In typical YDot GDot fashion “Miss Universe” is nothing like what’s on the radio. Shying from the ever popular interlude length songs currently dominating airwaves, “Miss Universe” is more than three minutes long.

DJ Frankie French – Africa

Producer and DJ Frankie French teamed up with Two Gully and YDot GDot for his latest release entitled “Africa.”

A three headed monster based in Chicago, DJ Frankie French, Two Gully and YDot GDot are quite the combination. An ode of sorts to black girls, “Africa” is just more than two minutes of fun. As if being a black woman isn’t already lit leave if up to DJ Frankie French to make theme song for them.

Listen to Africa now.

Emone Quadeem Brings Death To The Race

Tay-K’s “The Race” is a song about being on the lam, released while the artist was actually on the lam. A viral hit, that catapulted the 17 year-old fugitive into stardom, “The Race” is paced to take over the summer. However, Chicago based rapper Emone Quadeem has a message for Tay-K and all the other rappers who covered “The Race.”

Last night, EQ unveiled is own cover to “The Race,” cleverly entitled “Death To The Race” and the lyricist opens with the phrase “It’s a marathon, not a race.” Certainly, one of the truest statements in life, Emone Quadeem made a valid point over a beat that made a kid The New York Times called “a violent fugitive” famous.

“Death To The Race” is hosted by Chicago’s favorite nerd YDot GDot’and features fantastic cover art by none other than God Henry. Undoubted, he made a point, but the question here is did Emone Quadeem kill “TheRace?”

Listen now and decide: Death To The Race

It’s About Time: Ydot Gdot’s Debut Album

Overnight, Ydot Gdot delivered his highly anticipated debut album It’s About Time. The performer, DJ, activist and new father put together 11-track effort over the last three years and it was worth the wait.

A masterpiece of minimalism, Ydot shied away from tons of features a big name producers. The album gives fans more of an inside look into who YDot Gdot is as a man and an artist. The “Turn Up God” took a step back from partying to record songs like “What It Took”.

The Anti-Chiraq founder has always been known for his positivity and life of the party demeanor and that shines through on his album. Track after track, Ydot Gdot delivers the kind of music the world need. Admittly, largely experimental Dotty’s debut album features sounds never previously explored by the Chicago native. 

Self-proclaimed and proven “Chicago’s Favorite Nerd” supplied an album befitting of his clout. Nothing like the music the world expects from Chicago, but everything they should expect from Ydot Gdot. All that being said is it’s about time.
