Jamo Gang Drops A New Single—EP Coming Soon

The Jamo Gang EP is expected to arrive on 1-30-18 and comes with a bonus track from DJ Premier

2017 was a year full of unexpected and surprising collaborative efforts that real hip-hop heads could be excited about. Only one week into 2018, and we’ve already been given something to look forward to. The super lyrical one Ras Kass — who just last month dropped Year End Closeout, a dope playlist of new music — and MC El Gant has joined forces with producer J57 of the Brown Bag All-Stars to form Jamo Gang.

NOW, to be clear this isn’t left field; DJ Premier dropped a teaser video co-signing the trio last year around this time, and a few loosies were dropped, but a full project failed to materialize until now.

 
Earlier this week they dropped the first leak from their self-titled EP via HipHopDX, and — as expected — it’s a bucket of flame emojis.

I’m a huge fan of all three of these guys; Gant and Ras have worked together a few times, and I’ve always thought they’d sound great with a more substantial more focused body of work. I’m also still here for single producer projects, and J57, who is so dope that cats fully couldn’t distinguish some of his beats from Premier (who he worked with heavily at one point), is the icing on the cake.

AAHH mainstay ReachingNOVA is back with a brand new single titled “Keep Rolling,” featuring Geo The Architect (which whom he produced the song), and Switch’D. The song is a much-needed dose of motivation on a Monday morning,

“Gotta go get it is what I’m saying now, we go get it you waiting for life to play it out,” NOVA raps on the song’s second verse. The beat and verse — as they do with most of his songs — have an anthemic feel to them, blended with the often retrospective bars. “Giving you examples from my life, I ain’t trying to preach things,” he says as his verse comes to a close.

NOVA consistently has a sense of authenticity and real-world experience interspersed with music that gives it an edge, and “Keep Rolling” is no exception. Give the track a spin, below.
