Not glimpsed in the Booth since earning a standing ovation for Applaud Me back in September, J.Gunn makes his long-awaited return to our pages with Shiraz Life, a new single selection off his most recent street release. Here, The Jake sets the mood with sliced-and-diced jazz samples as the First in Flight State spitter drops verses packed from bottom to top with self-assured braggadocio. Keith Corbett guests, contributing a soulful hook as well as backing vocals throughout. Craving more? You’re in luck; released back in May, The Earl Manigault Project is available for download from the artist’s official site.
