If you tuned in for last week’s Booth countdown on Don Cannon and DJ Infamous’ Infamy Radio, you’ve already gotten a taste of Put My Cape On, the new single off J The S’ recent, DJBooth.net-sponsored Wish You Were Here mixtape. Today, those who haven’t been keeping up with the Boston buzzmaker finally get to hear what the fuss is all about. This hard-hitting jam finds beatsmith Cory Bold blending crunchy synths and stomp-clap percussion as Jake the Snake delivers bars packed from top to bottom with out-of-this-world braggadocio. Change hookman Franco once again fills the role of sidekick, contributing a slightly angstful (It’s so hard to fly, with broken wings…”), but undeniably catchy chorus and bridge. Will the superhuman skills Jake and his collaborators showcase here add up to a mainstream radio hit? For now, we can only speculate. Either way, though, you won’t want to miss out on the freshness contained on the artist’s latest street album, released March 10, and available here for streaming and free download.
