J57‘s tunes may not be in rotation on your local Top 40 station, but few clued-in hip-hop heads would dispute his Elite Status. On this newly-released EP single, the Brown Bag All-Stars emcee-producer showcases the full breadth of his skill set, delivering peerless rhymes over his own soul-sampled production (with guest cuts by DJ Brace). Garden State flame-spitter Rasheed Campbell assists on the guest tip. The 2057 EP is scheduled to drop, along with another EP release entitled The Ports, May 22. In the meantime, fans can download this record free of charge via Audiomack.
