JPEGMAFIA Completes ‘EP!’ with “SUPER TUESDAY!”
Such a turbulent year requires some turbulent music, and who better to deliver than experimental artist JPEGMAFIA.
The rapper/singer/producer has been putting out content all year, sporadically releasing singles, music videos, and episodes of his HTBAR series on Youtube. He’s since compiled the singles into a brief 26-minute project, EP!.
The nine track offering includes previously released songs “BALD!,” “ROUGH 7” featuring Tommy Genesis, and the “BALD!” remix with Denzel Curry. The project is capped off with a new track, “SUPER TUESDAY!,” with tough, surprisingly reflective bars over a vintage soul melody complete with JPEGMAFIA’s signature array of glitches.
On top of the release of EP!, the rapper affectionately known as PEGGY teased in an Instagram post that a follow-up to the project, EP2!, is already finished.
In an appearance on The Zane Lowe Show, PEGGY claimed he’s “ready for a reset” and has a lot of new stuff on the horizon, adding “you know, I didn’t release a project this year, in 2021, I’m going to be doing a lot of sh*t. That’s just all I got to say.”
Keep an eye out for EP2! and expect a possible full-length project from JPEGMAFIA in the upcoming year.
