New Music: Jab Julien – “8oss Up” [EP]
Jab Julien was blessed with a prolific and powerful gift that is uniquely his own. The lyricist-vocalist-songwriter from Newark, NJ uses his pen to finesse lyrics that are uplifting, transparent and stretch across multiple generations.
Relocating to Atlanta in 2017, the rising MC flows with artistic precision over 808 beats on his latest release, the conceptual EP ‘8oss UP,’ which includes 8 tracks about striving to become a better version of oneself every day, trusting the process and advancing towards an infinite vision, which is also the label name. Jab Julien had his hard drive stolen in the midst of the recording process, so the title reflects his own personal journey of perseverance.
A consummate artist, Jab Julien is at the forefront of navigating a movement to alter the landscape of hip-hop with honesty, humor, intelligence and candor.
