J.J. Jabber – “[Insert Title Here]” EP
J.J. Jabber is a threat. The Milwaukeeland producer-emcee mixes Hip Hop with Rock to create an unmatched twisted Metal sound on his debut EP. While the Grime style has been in The Midwest for a minute, Jabber comes at the records in an even more widely appealing sense on [Insert Title Here]. Tech 9 nem birthed the Midwest Grime but there have been few standouts to follow up until now.
We kicked off the #JabberSeason promo with a deadly “[Girl Next Door]” record that sounded like a walk to the electric chair. The follow up hit just as hard. Jabber smacked the “[White Collar]” beat with a K Dot flow. “Come up round n get lit”, he repeated in that high and tight intonation that we’ve all come to appreciate. Then of course we premiered “[Patterns]” right here on da Basement Made site. The emcee is good at mixing other styles with his own. “I learned all I know from my headphones”, he raps.
No features necessary. This is one of the best produced albums I’ve ever heard outta The 4. Mammyth mixed it. I want to hear the artist rap more about himself, though. There are a lot of general ideas going on here, not enough on his personal experiences.
“This EP is for anyone who has been stuck on the seesaw their entire life. Teetering on the edge of sanity, blinded by perfectionism and self-doubt. While those aspects of my life have been overwhelmingly prominent, I combat my downfall through a confident approach, shown specifically through my art”.
Premiered by Earmilk, who came out with “There is not a lot that I can say about J.J. at the moment, honestly”. And these people call themselves journalists…
