J57 – Legacy ft Katiah (I’m the J57)

We’ve got a new video to share from Brown Bag AllStars member J57. Here is the video for Legacy ft Katiah and Matt Stamm, taken from his debut solo LP.

Around a year ago, J57 released “I’m the J57” free album. If you can’t remember CLICK HERE for the promotional videos we shared at the time. One of the singles from that album was Legacy ft Katiah and Matt Stamm. Why are we just seeing the video now? I hear you ask. It’s simple. The album is now available on CD, and J57 will be donating 100% of money earned from sales to helping with the Flint Water Crisis.

Tenacity – Get Down ft DeeJay Element and J57

• May 31, 2017
Tenacity - Get Down ft Deejay Element and J57

Tenacity – Get Down ft Deejay Element and J57

LA-based rapper and producer Tenacity has teamed up with Deejay Element and J57 for his latest single “Get Down”. Exile is also called upon for production.

When speaking about the collaboration, “Exile sent the beat and Tenacity & J57 (very drunkenly) wrote and recorded the entire song together at J’s studio in Brooklyn. They then brought in DeeJay Element for the cuts at the end.  This is a fun track where Tenacity and J seamlessly boast back and forth line for line over some excellent Exile production!”

Tenacity is not only multi-talented, but is the MC/producer/engineer from House Shoes’ “Street Corner” label. It’s unclear at the moment whether the single will be part of an upcoming project, but we’ll be keeping your posted with any developments or updates we receive. In related news, J57 is continuing to work with Jamo Gang (El Gant x Ras Kass x J57) on their upcoming project, and both he and DeeJay Element announced that the Brown Bag AllStars are back in action. We fully expect to hear some more music from the group soon.
You can listen to Tenacity – Get Down ft DeeJay Element and J57 (produced by Exile) on the soundcloud player below.

Jamo Gang ft Mean Joe Scheme – Straight No Chase

• May 3, 2017
Jamo Gang - Straight No Chase ft Mean Joe Scheme

Jamo Gang – Straight No Chase ft Mean Joe Scheme

Following the formation of the new super group Jamo Gang, we have a new single featuring Mean Joe Scheme titled Straight No Chase.

Hip-Hop Kings may feel that Straight No Chase feels a little familiar. You would be correct. We posted a live version of the single which Jamo Gang performed in April (last month) during the live show at The Mockingbird. As explained previously, El Gant owns the club, which made the perfect venue for Jamo Gang to make their debut. Mean Joe Scheme (who’s signed to J57’s “Five Seven Music” features on this version, which will also be part of the debut Jamo Gang LP to be released later this year.

We’re excited to hear more about the debut Jamo Gang album and will share the news as soon as we receive it. In the meantime, please feel free to search for Jamo Gang in the Hip-Hop Kings archive to see what we’ve already posted. Straight No Chase is just a taster (pun intended) of what to expect from the trio in the forthcoming weeks and months. You can listen to Jamo Gang ft Mean Joe Scheme – Straight No Chase on the soundcloud player below.

Da Villins FOH Pt 2 ft Prodigy (Mobb Deep) (J57 Remix)

• February 8, 2017
Da Villins FOH Pt 2 ft Prodigy (J57 Remix)

Da Villins FOH Pt 2 ft Prodigy (J57 Remix)

This is the brand new single from Da Villins FOH Pt 2 ft Prodigy (Mobb Deep) which has an official J57 remix.

Da Villins were working with Sean Price before his passing, and had already begun work with J57 before this official single has been released. Their link with Prodigy has resulted in Da Villins FOH Pt 2 ft Prodigy, which J57 has officially remixed for his birthday. We are expecting to hear more music from Da Villins and J57 as we progress through 2017, but news on an official collaborative project is yet to reach us.

J57 is of course working with Jamo Gang (J57 x Ras Kass x El Gant) which Hip-Hop Kings announced were an official group last month. The first track with Big Twins was blogged and met with a positive response, and fans are looking forward to more music from Jamo Gang, along with the highly anticipated album with Koncept which we will hear later in 2017.

You can listen to Da Villins FOH Pt 2 ft Prodigy (Mobb Deep) (J57 Remix) on the soundcloud player below.

Introducing Jamo Gang (Ras Kass, El Gant and J57)

• January 9, 2017
Introducing Jamo Gang (Ras Kass, El Gant and J57)

Introducing Jamo Gang (Ras Kass, El Gant and J57)

When we talk super groups in Hip-Hop it feels there aren’t enough. Today one was born. Hip-Hop Kings are delighted to be introducing Jamo Gang (Ras Kass, El Gant and J57).

The collaboration comes as quite a surprise at first, but the story starts with Ras Kass and El Gant working together and travelling to J57’s Brooklyn Studio. The three started recording as fun which quickly turned into a serious project. Plus, when you have DJ Premier publicly supporting you, it’s probably a winning combination. The three have already recorded enough material for an album and today release a single titled “Here We Go Again” ft Big Twins.

J57 oversaw the final stages of the album, making sure his signature sound is present while subtly improving the record. We are still looking forward to the Flight LP with Koncept which we hope will see a release in the first half of 2017. While Ras Kass is still celebrating the release of SOI2 (Sound of Ice 2) which featured the likes of RZA, Onyx, Statik Selektah and Bun B, he had time to lay some serious verses on the new album. Last but not least, El Gant is working on two albums, with executive production by J57 and DJ Premier. If that information doesn’t excite you as a Hip-Hop fan, nothing will.

There’s the article of Hip-Hop Kings introducing Jamo Gang, which we hope will be digested and referred to in the future as the start of something special. Enjoy the first moments by listening to “Here We Go Again” ft Big Twins below.

I’m delighted to share a brand new instrumental single from J57 titled “The Wizard of O.D.D.”. Available to download for free, J57 The Wizard of O.D.D is the latest release from the Brown Bag AllStars member.

The beat (explained by J57 himself) was actually made in 2007.

J57 handles the production for most of these artists, and we’ve featured them on the website in the past few years. Please go ahead and check the Hip-Hop Kings archives for the names mentioned above, along with J57’s previous works.

J57 and Koncept will shortly be releasing “Flight” which is a full-length album which follows “The Fuel EP” which we had the pleasure of hearing last year. Make sure you check out the 25 facts on The Fuel EP given by Koncept and J57. We don’t have the full artwork or track listing to Flight yet – but will post it when we do.

• May 24, 2016
j57 plan A

j57 plan A

Brown Bag AllStars rapper and producer J57 presents the latest video for his single “Plan A”. J57 Plan A has been uploaded to J’s official YouTube page and the single is taken from the free album titled “I’m the J57”.

Directed by: Dood Computer and produced by J57 himself, Plan A (as the title suggests) addresses the distractions than backup plans can create to achieving your goal. With a relentless work rate and a combination of quality music, J57 has inevitably risen in status which has seen recent collaborations with the likes of Method Man (Purple Tape) and Nas (Ghostbusters Design Session). J57 Plan A is simply a reminder why J is considered one of the most highly anticipated rappers and producers in Hip-Hop at the moment.

I’m the J57 is a free album from J, which can be downloaded from the J57 music website, and is released via J’s “FiftySevenMusic” label. Please check out the previous music that we’ve blogged on Hip-Hop Kings which includes a collaboration with Kosha Dillz on “Chump Change”, the track “57th Chamber” with Absolute and “No Future” which is a collaboration with FiftySevenMusic artist F.Virtue.

You can watch J57 Plan A on the YouTube player below.

Kosha Dillz ft Kyle Rapps and J57 Chump Change

Kosha Dillz ft Kyle Rapps and J57 Chump Change

When in-directly associated artists collaborate for great music it reminds me why I love Hip-Hop music. Kosha Dillz ft Kyle Rapps and J57 Chump Change is the brand new single which has been uploaded to Kosha’s official soundcloud page.

Kosha Dillz was quoted talking about the single saying “Financially conscious emcees Kosha Dillz and Kyle Rapps discuss the factors of good saving, good spending, and what constitutes large amounts of money. The J57 boom bap track is suitably titled “Chump change.” J57 handles the production for the single which was premiered on 2DopeBoyz earlier this month. Kosha Dillz ft Kyle Rapps and J57 Chump Change has subsequently been supported by a lot of the blogs and Hip-Hop publications, with good reason.

We are also able to share the news that Kosha Dillz is working on a new solo album titled “What I Do All Day and Pickle”. We’ve been told that we should expect the album to reach us at the end of May / early June via his own imprint “OY VEY” which is part of Soulspazm. We will be posting the official artwork, pre-order link and tracklisting as soon as that information reaches our inbox.

You can listen to Kosha Dillz ft Kyle Rapps and J57 Chump Change on the soundcloud player below (lets also hope for an official video in the near future too!)
