Posted one year ago
Producer:
Flawless Tracks
Album:
The Wake Up

Update: The Asa Davis-directed visuals for Jahzel’s Wake Up single have been added.

Booth readers, do you know what time it us? No need to glance at your cell, because I’m gonna tell you: it’s time for you to Wake Up and start paying attention to Jahzel. Premiered via HipHopDX, this freshly-released single is a fitting introduction to the Black Key Collective rhymesayer, for those who slept through previous features Inner City Kid and Chapters. On this atmospheric jam, the Northside Chicago native chronicles his struggle to survive and thrive in a city whose dangers are all too well-known. Flawless Tracks mans the boards, backing the artist’s bars with an intricate mix of moody synths, vocal samples and sound effects. Fans will be able to find Wake Up and much more on the artist’s LP of the same name scheduled to drop October 7.
