Nearly a decade and a half after Y2K, JAWN Life is still in a pre-millennial state of mind. On his latest single and debut DJBooth feature, the up-and-coming rhymesayer links up with fellow 90s Babies and The JAWNS members Moolah Manz and DottieO to pay tribute to the era that made them the artists they are today. A classic industry beat by DJ Premier backs the collaborators as they chronicle their paper chase in bars liberally laced with 1990s pop-culture references (even Blanka from Street Fighter gets a shout-out). This throiwback banger is just one of many quality cuts to be found on JAWN’s Pay Homage mixtape, set to drop digitally March 26.
This is the first song featured on DJBooth from this artist. If you would like to hear more, be sure to rate and comment!
