Yuk - Music Is My Life EP (For The People Ent.)
Yuk a.k.a. "Mr. Live Wire" is an artist on For The People Entertainment, which I profiled in the City Paper a few months ago, and has in the past primarily performed as a member of the duo Yuk & Cut. He's got a full-length album due later this year, but this first solo project is just an EP -- 6 songs on the tracklist but 3 more hidden tracks, including some familiar ones from previous FTP releases like "Lower Than Yours" with Ace and Lil Shank. So it's just kind of a little sampler but it's enough to really get a sense of his voice and personality that you might not entirely get from the Squadre Committee or Yuk & Cut material. I'm supposed to be getting some more new FTP releases from Cutthroat and Bear soon, looking forward to those. Check out Yuk on MySpace.

People hate on later Van Halen but fuck it, I kinda like some of that Van Hagar shit. They picked a cool bit of "Right Now" to loop up for this track, not too obvious but still works as a hook.
