There are some truths that are so obvious we rarely comment on them, except to illustrate the concept of obviousness: the sky is blue, one plus one is two, JD Era goes hard, you get the picture. On You Know That, the inaugural leak off his forthcoming Th1rt3en mixtape, the Toronto up-and-comer informs listeners that, though a new decade has begun, he himself hasn’t changed one bit: “Still underrated, still one to fear, still don’t like rappers, n*gga get the f*ck outta here.” Fellow T-Dot native Beat Merchant backs the track with a tension-fraught blend of organ chords, synth-arpeggios, and choral background vocals, lending Era’s hard-hitting rhymes an ominous edge. Is this track’s openly aggressive style a better look for JD Era than the laid-back vibe he brought to his last feature, Champagne Nights? You be the jury. Either way, fans of the Ontarian up-and-comer can hear more on his new, DJ DAX-presented street album when it drops early next month.
