Brainfeeder's Jeremiah Jae has been in our ears since '10, before his Rappayamatantra EP. It was love at first listen on his mix-up DXNCE EP. While there's plenty of deserved praise being tossed in Chicago's direction lately, Jae has gone overlooked in his hometown, possibly due to his signing to Flying Lotus' west coast based label.
In preperation of Jeremiah Jae's summer full length, he dropped the “Money” single today. Jae has a special knack for twisting old Stax 45s into the brainfed warpings synonymous with FlyLo's label without sacrificing their hot buttered soul. On “Money” he tries to convince his baby that money is makebelieve with a soft croon, but as the codiene flow lament creeps in it is the brutal truth smacking Jae out of his dream state.
Jeremiah Jae's Raw Money Raps is out July 24 on Brainfeeder.
