With Thunder in Paradise, featured earlier this week, Brown Bag All-Stars member Soul Khan proved that, with or without his reader-acclaimed crew, he’s a force to be reckoned with. Today, fellow Intoxicated Gentleman J57 makes his own entrance into the spotlight with Lights Out, the first leak off his debut solo album. Over his own cinematically gritty sampled production (featuring cuts by DeeJay Element), J spits aggressive bars jam-packed with witty wordplay: “Make you think I did three lines like a haiku / Ain’t no Condoleeza Rice, ain’t lovin’ that white(,) dude…” Brooklyn-based Booth fave Skyzoo handles guest duties, lacing the track’s back end with his own brand of razor-sharp lyrical imagery. One more reason to keep your eye on the Brown Bag All-Stars and each of the crew’s members individually, Lights Out is just one of the fresh underground jams to be found on the emcee’s Digital Society LP, set for digital-only release this Friday via Juno Award-winning label Balance Records.
