El Gant (1/3rd of Jamo Gang) owns a venue in NYC called The Mockingbird. Jamo Gang Straight No Chase needed to be showcased. To take advantage of this the group performed live and shared the video.
As explained earlier this year, Jamo Gang (El Gant, J57 and Ras Kass) are a new super-group within the Hip-Hop world. Jamo Gang Straight No Chase is the latest visual offering from the trio, as they prepare to reach the world with their music. The video is just under 3 minutes long and uses footage of the live event in The Mockingbird. The album version of Straight No Chase includes a familiar name in “Mean Joe Scheme” so make sure you buy that when it’s released.

At the start of 2017 we shared news about a new rap crew called Jamo Gang. We now have an official video to share we’ve titled This is Jamo Gang.
The official video has been directed by Rob Levy for Civil Productions and gives further insight into Jamo Gang. This is Jamo Gang is a 2:43 minute video to further introduce the members (Ras Kass, El Gant and J57). The rapper/producer trio have already had the co-sign from the legendary DJ Premier, and new music is on it’s way. The album is done and the promotional campaign is due to start anytime soon. We at Hip-Hop Kings are waiting in anticipation for the new music to reach our inbox. The new video speaks on how the name of the group came to fruition.
For fans in New York, a debut show will be held at NYC – Arlene’s Grocery on 13th April 2017. There will be a live band performing alongside MC’s Ras Kass and El Gant, along with J57 taking his position on the boards. I will also be anticipating some guest appearances on the night, from J57 affiliates and label mates. In the meantime please enjoy the new video introducing Jamo Gang and remember the name.
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.
