Holy shit! This is super dope! I am highly anticipating this album from Jamo Gang, Walk With Lions, even more so now! The combination of El Gant, Ras Kass, and J57 seems like an unstoppable force and you and this cut is a prime example. This track defines ferocity. J57 puts together a head nodder that infuses a rock rhythm into some boom bap and Gant and Ras Kass put on a verbal demolition for all of us to hear.
Album drops on April 10th!
So here is a list of my favorite EPs from 2018. I easily could have extended this list to 25 projects and been really comfortable about that. However, I really wanted to showcase what I consider to be the best projects in a year where there was so much greatness to consider. In the end, there were no votes, judges, or etcetera. This was simply a matter of personal preference. I hope you enjoy these projects as much as I did.

I am going to start featuring one album from the previous week every Monday because there is so much good music that I believe is going unheard. And this album from French producer, Astro Vandalist, is something that you guys need to be made aware of. It’s 17 tracks of unadulterated and potent hip hop. The beats really hit hard and you can see by this lineup of emcees that there are some heavy hitters on here.
Check out and cop the whole thing as it is worth every penny, but here are my favorite tracks if you want a sampling!
Are Jamo Gang (Ras Kass x El Gant x J57) responsible for the best EP of 2018? I am going to say yes. These guys are monsters in their profession. Their self-titled EP is nothing but bangers and this track is just a piece of the pie. Plus you get visuals from Skrewtape. This is a win for hip hop fans of all ilks.
Ras Kass, El Gant, and J57 are giving the kids a glimpse of the Golden Era on their latest single from the incredible Self-Titled EP. Remarkably, the project is available for FREE. I mean, I would have bought this project like five or six times over, so the fact you get it for free should speak volumes.
This project is impeccable.
Last single before the Jamo Gang EP drops on January 31st. You know that shit is going to be flames…and no…not lighter flames. Like California Forrest Fire type arson! J57 laces ANOTHER incredible uptempo banger, that accomplished wordsmiths, El Gant and Ras Kass stake claim to another bout of verbal armageddon. Does that sound over-dramatic? Not really.
Here’s the video for the recently released single from Jamo Gang (El Gant x Ras Kass x J57), All Eyes On Us. I’ve already told you how I feel about this song. This beat surrounded by this lyricism just makes for an incredible track.
The EP is coming in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait.
It’s early, but this track from Jamo Gang (El Gant, Ras Kass, J57) could be one of the toughest tracks of 2018. Good lawd! That bass line, the scratching, the bars, all the way down to the additional vocals makes this joint a legitimate threat to anyone’s ears. This song was so dope to the senses I almost suffered stigmata.
Jamo Gang (El Gant x Ras Kass) rip over a J57 banger flexing their lyrical stylings. This could easily be an anthem for all of us who endeavor to a higher level of hip hop. El Gant and Ras Kass are a potent duo. Ras Kass is a legend and one of the all time greatest wordsmiths to do it, and while El Gant might not have the same notoriety, he is not to be bested. He spits bars with an equal measure of tenacity and venom.
Look out for the album this summer! It’s going to be one to remember!
Some new music from DJ Ready Cee featuring El Gant and J. Blanc, hit the inbox and when that happens, it’s always worth sharing. El Gant spits some gasoline over this fire production from Ready Cee. I love the sounds he cultivated on this joint, in particular that horn sample!
Always good stuff!
