This weeks Sunday slow jam comes courtesy of J-Live. Last month he released his album S.P.T.A. (Said Person of That Ability) as Producer, MC, and DJ. A real triple threat who see’s help on the production front from Diamond D, RJD2, Nicolay, and Marco Polo. Make no mistake though, J-live’s own productions sit perfectly with the other producers in what is a timeless throw back with modern day lyrics.
The Stand out track ‘The Authentic’ (produced by Marco Polo) shows why J-live is regarded so highly by other Mc’s and his cult like following. His capability to throw a conversation effortlessly back and forth with himself is also something to be applauded. With lines likes “Yo your shit is crack/ in so much as that I never fucked with it and never will/ Never used, Never deal/ Never chopped, never cooked/ and I really don’t feel the appeal/ How he get a record deal, for real?” its no wonder S.P.T.A is a Long Player soon to be regarded as classic, you just haven’t realised it yet. Make sure you buy the album in its entirety from itunes, or any of the other big digital outlets/record stores.
