It's been an enjoyable

time following

the movements

and releases of Chicago

artist Ajani Jones.

The rapper linked

with producer

Banks the Genius

at the end of 2016

for their collaborative EP,

Astrals. It was one

of the first posts

on this blog

and I've been

trying to keep up

with Jones ever since.

We've heard loose

singles, Sofar Sounds

performances, a full-length

tape, Eternal Bliss,

and now this:


The six song EP

is a cohesive rap

release featuring

only one vocalist

(Kweku Collins)

and production from

BoatHouse, Noah Sims,

Banks the Genius,

X-Ray, and Sebastian Kamae

(aka some of Chicago's

finest beatsmiths).

It's a cold first release as part

of the Closed Sessions

team and it's a welcome

new chapter to a rapper

with a strong background

and plenty more

on the way.
