The iLLustrious music recording artist, MeRCY, drops off his latest “Featured Presentation.” The album is full of guest appearances by Nature, Planet Asia, Skyzoo, Dave East, Havoc of Mobb Deep, and Sean Price just to name a few. “Featured Presentation” should keep his fans satisfied while we await the release of his new studio album this summer. This 10 track project is solid with the very first song “Charisma” being one of the stand outs. Make sure you follow MeRCY on Twitter.
Switching up the mood, Bishop releases “Open Letter” which is one of his most personal songs to date. According to Bishop, “I wrote this record hoping the message wouldn’t be lost behind the story. From one father removed to many others, this is the often untold story, the other side.” With production from Abstrak, the two combine to make a statement for other father’s who may be facing a similar situation.

[NEW YORK] After having Kojazz made his appearance on the NikkiJoMazing Couch, then releasing his Change The Subject EP, and constantly working with his other affiliates from the iLLustrious group. Currently, KoJazz released another collective project entitled the Jazz Daniels EP. The nine track EP is solely produced by Solidified. According to KoJazz “Journey through 30 minutes of liquored up tunes and cheers to good times sponsored by shots of good ol’ Jazz Daniels…Listen Responsibly”. And that’s what I’m planning on doing, I’ll be reviewing the project and pick out my favorite tracks.
[HONEY ON THE ROCKS] This track definitely sets the mood right and demonstrates a night of influence. Kojazz is setting the tone over this sweet Solidified beat. Kojazz is very descriptive and describes heading to a bar and fighting his demons. His flow lands perfectly with the beat.
[THE BREWERY] Kojazz collaborates with JuG the ILLEST and Rell Burgundy. This track sets the mood for the afterparty. Everyone has bars and I think its pretty dope there’s a Flash line hidden in the track. The hook is mad catchy! THE BREWERY can definitely be played at clubs I can sense the crowd to really be feeling this one.
[POUR DECISIONS INTERLUDE] After a night of binge drinking, you can only imagine the poor decisions you’ll make under the influence. One of them like driving under the influence. I really like the samples and skit at the end. Showing you the effects of driving drunk and getting pulled over.
[ALCOHOL POISONING] I feel like this is the climax track to the Jazz Daniels EP. Everyone on the track Christyle, MeRCY, and Kojazz get rowdy on this one. I really like Christyle’s verse, she’s brining it to the table.
[GENTLEMEN JAZZ] time to slow down the night and unwind with Kojazz and YoAmanduh. Even though Kojazz may seem tough but he can get romantic on the track. YoAmanduh brings that late night vibes with her sultry voice. Nice way to end the 30 minute journey.
This concludes my review on Kojazz’s Jazz Daniel’s EP. Shoutout to everyone who was apart of the project Solidified, Bishop, MeRCY, Rell Burgundy, JuG the ILLest, Christyle, & yoAmamduh. If you’re diggin’ the EP as much as I am, you gotta follow and stay in the loop with Kojazz.

MeRCY & KoJazz sound great together, they we’re both able to illustrate their lyrics, through the power of words. Take it back and press play and get iLL Minded.

Check out the latest track from KoJazz titled HIGH STANDARDS featuring Bishop. I’m really diggin’ the track. It’s an all out feel good vibe to it. It’s all about getting everything because you deserve it. From getting high, money, woman, and get fly. HIGH STANDARDS is produced by Shag. Love the flow and charisma. KoJazz’s Change the Subject EP is almost set to release in the near future.
This is god given, bars in the stars written
Margins a large difference
Hardships and hard living
Road to riches you oughta hop in the car with him -Bishop
