When In Rome...

In anticipation of the release of his third underground album, The Last Days, Boston rapper J the S (short for Jake the Snake) released a “prequel” album, When In Rome…, this past March.  Joining fellow Bay Statesmen Termanology and Akrobatik with his classic underground-style rap, Jake calls on the audience to Do You while he “does him” (please erase all thought of Rocko from your mind).  Fellow underrated undergrounders (Aftermath artist Joell Ortiz and hookman Lee Wilson) contribute to J the S’s message of individuality, while producer Raf Moses sets up an unusually sunny beat.  Don’t feel bad that Do You will likely never get mainstream airplay; the airwaves aren’t the setting for J The S to dwell.
