Breaking off from his Diamond District – the trio also comprised of Oddisee and yU – duties, DMV-bred rapper XO has a solo mixtape (and album, but we’ll get to that later) lined up, and today, he serves up the first sample. Inspired by the dialect of his home region – for which he represents throughout the song – XO gifts “Errybody”, a clunking and forceful number which throws punches at your eardrums through both the instrumental and the emcee’s punishing bars.
This new track also boasts some accompanying visuals, which pastes together footage from his trip to SXSW earlier this year, and includes cameos from the likes of Nipsey Hussle, Killer Mike, Danny Brown and Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg.
“Errybody” will feature on XO’s The Color Gray mixtape (out October), which serves as a precursor to his studio album, Colour de Grey, which will arrive in January 2013 via Mello Music Group. In the meantime, enjoy the new sounds and visuals below.
