Looking to bridge the gap between both the conscious and cool, DMV native Jay IDK is currently prepping the release of his highly anticipated debut body of work, SubTrap. #SubTrap, short for Suburban Trap is paradox for trap music with substance. Loosely based on the life of the London born emcee, the forthcoming album gives an unbiased account of life on both sides of the drug game. Personified through the characters: Chris, Jon Jon, Matt, Ed and King Trappy III (pictured on the LP’s artwork) who you should already be familiar with if you’ve listened to the albums 1st single “The Plug”, which was liberated back in March via COMPLEX.
Mixed by Delbert Bowers (Yeezus, Long.Live.A$AP, The Marshall Mathers LP2), the projects artwork was crafted by graphic artist Nicky Chulo (GoldLink, Chaz French, REVOLT TV) while production duties were split between in-house instrumentalist Lo-Fi, TDE frequent collaborator Skhyehutch (Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city hymn “I’m Dying of Thirst”), Tobari, GameBrand, The Glitch Mob, Noose, Mister Temptation, The Watcherz and Jay himself. #SubTrap releases on August 25th via iTunes.
