As Frederick Douglass once said, “Without struggle, there is no progress.” On his latest effort, a previously-unreleased jam recorded back in December of 2010, Big Apple buzzmaker Jelani fills us in on a few of the struggles that made him into the man, and the artist, he is today. Carl Carr produces, crafting a chill, piano-led backdrop for the emcee’s contemplative rhymes. This joint isn’t attached to any forthcoming project, but those digging it can keep it locked to the Booth for all the latest news and tunes from this talented up-and-comer.
