I stumbled across the work of this artist and loved it. You can’t go wrong with a hip hop/jazz/soul blend. East London rapper and producer Jay Prince has definitely mastered this genre mixture. The album’s 9 tracks blend well and the production is a throwback while remaining contemporary and interesting. Skipping is not an option as all the tracks are equally strong.
It’s hard to believe that this is free. If you’re a fan of Mick Jenkins, then this album is for you. Listen to ‘BeFor Our Time’ above and check out his earlier work here. When you’ve finished listening watch the accompanying short film, ‘Notes’ below.
