@j2trippy is only 3 months removed from her debut G.L.O.E., but on Friday she unveiled the the 6 track long Gawd Body, produced in its entirety by Wax Roof. The rising Oakland emcee joins forces with the versatile producer and multi-instrumentalist whose name has been associated with releases from Elujay, Caleborate, and Down 2 Earth, to create a body of work that is more mature and cohesive than her debut. Siri explores feelings of falling in love, having to say goodbye to that love, and needing space to breathe in the short offering.
The growth exhibited in such a short amount of time is promising of the fact that we’ll have a lot to look forward to as the young rapper and singer comes further into her own as an artist. We’ll also have to pay close attention to the moves Wax Roof is making as he proves himself to be one of the architects behind Oakland’s rising new sound.
