Rass Kass, El Gant, J57 To Release Debut Album As Jamo Gang DJ Premier Contributes
Jamo Gang consists of Los Angeles legend Ras Kass, NYC’s El Gant and J57 on the beats. The trio’s debut album “Walking with Lions” is set to be released on May 8th via Fat Beats Records. The album features DJ Premier, Slug from Atmosphere, Sid Wilson from Slipknot, Sick Jacken from Psycho Realm & Slaine from La Coka Nostra. J57 handled all of the musical backdrops except for “The 1st Time” which was produced by DJ Premier, one of Hip Hop’s most accomplished producers.
El Gant said “We were al in the studio hanging out with Premier one night, and Preem played a few things he had in the chamber. We really liked the vibe to it, and the rest is history. J57 thought it was the perfect song to ask Slug to be a part of and he was with it. It is really exciting for us to have these two together for the first timeon one of our songs.”
J57 added “This song means a LOT to us. This is my first time rhyming on a DJ Premier beat and working with Slug, two people I’ve looked up to for many years before becoming friends with them. This is is perfect. Premier even brought in legendary piano player, Tyler Kimbro to bless the track, which was also an honor.”
