The Two Sniper Gang Emcees Connect on a Track from the Upcoming Jackboy Album; Tracklist Revealed Below.
Holding it down for the South Florida rap scene, Jackboy is emphatically making a name for himself as one of his region’s most inventive emcees. Connecting with his Sniper Gang chieftain Kodak Black for a woozy banger, Jackboy shares “Like A Million.” Close friends since growing up together in Pompano Beach, Kodak and Jackboy were an inseparable duo and verbal sparring partners–Jackboy worked up the confidence to start his rap career with the help of encouragement from the ascendant Kodak. On “Like A Million,” the duo displays the innate chemistry that earned them tens of millions of views on songs like “G To The A,” annihilating the ethereal Tay Keith instrumental with croaking melodies and percussive flows. “Like A Million” is a highlight track from JACKBOY, the artist’s upcoming self-titled album, hitting the internet on April 24th via Sniper Gang/EMPIRE.
Marked by production from Kid Hazel, Go Grizzly, TNTxD, and many others, JACKBOY reflects the artist’s wide-ranging tastes (he listens to Adele and Ed Sheeran more than he listens to any rapper), with instrumentals that range from the minimalist percussion-driven “Zombie World” to the East Asian tinge of “Freedom Of Speech” to the snaking guitar lines of recent single “Cleaning Crew.” The new project showcases the 23-year-old rapper’s versatile vocals, which oscillate between clipped cadences and pained operatics at a moments notice. Earlier this week, the rapper shared “Pressure,” the album’s emotional and defiant opening track. Featuring appearances from his friend and Sniper Gang boss Kodak Black, and an all-star lineup of guest rappers including YFN Lucci, Casanova, Blac Youngsta, Coi Leray, and Warhol.SS, JACKBOY is currently available for pre-order.
JACKBOY is the first project in a busy 2020 for the Pompano Beach, FL rapper. Last year, Jackboy released two projects, including the acclaimed Lost In My Head project, which dropped in September and included popular singles “Not A Clone” (5.3 million views) and the JetsonMade-produced “Bipolar” (3.5 million views). After building momentum with the release of “Freedom Of Speech” (1.1 million views) and collaborations with YFN Lucci and Louisiana rapper TEC, Jackboy recently earned a nomination from XXL for their Freshman 10th Spot.
