For most emcees, holding down one city is responsibility enough. Jeff Chery, on the other hand, has taken it upon himself to rep not one, but three ‘hoods—four, if you count his birthplace. On his latest single, making its world premiere right here on our front page, the perennial Booth fave compares his set of loyalties to a Cerberus-like mythological creature: “Born in Haiti, raised in Brooklyn, moved to the A, took trips to L.A… call those the Three Headed Monsters.” Funkybeats’ pensive, piano-laced instrumental, while not exactly funky, is a fittingly cinematic accompaniment to the artist’s lyrical pilgrimage. Due out in September, Chery’s next studio album currently lacks a title. While you’re waiting for further details, why not check out his last street release, the free, DJBooth-featured Jetset Vagabond LP?
