Jeremiah Jae - 'Raw Money Raps' Out In July

"I think it's safe to say Jeremiah Jae is one of my favorite artists of his generation. For years now I've been a witness to the incredible progression of his craft. This album has a complex dedication and honesty that I search for in myself with my own art. Underrated and understated, Jae is ready to show these muhfuckers what's really good. Believe in Jeremiah Jae". - Flying Lotus

It’s truly apt that Raw Money Raps opens with Jeremiah Jae hazily reminiscing about awakening from an especially chimerical journey. After a kaleidoscopic grip of beat tapes, EPs and mixtapes that have sent wi-fi connections rumbling, as well as a move from windswept Chi-city to the home of his Brainfeeder crew in LA, Jae unveils his sprawling debut full-length release. More than just an album, this is an all-encompassing Pynchonian, Tumblr-feeding, social networked art-rap fever dream. Across it’s span, the album touches on fractured, cautionary headbangers (“Rover”), string-laden classicism (“Cat Fight”) and deeply psychedelic futurism (“Hercules Versus the Commune”) and in the process, ignites the brightest rising star of 2012.

Raw Money Raps’ first single, “Money” is a where-did-my-cash-go-mid-afternoon summer jam for hot cloudy days ahead, accompanied by an upcoming, suitably tweaked video directed by fellow renaissance man Flying Lotus. “Money” comes paired with another album standout in “Money and Food”, which takes trap rap’s unhinged synths and 808 kicks and filters them through Jae’s prism. Prepare yourself for Jeremiah Jae’s journey.

Raw Money Raps is released 23 July. The single Money is out 14 May and can be pre-ordered now at the Ninjashop.
