Jay Electronica is something of a rap myth and legend. Over the years he’s produced for Nas, signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation, and released a string of singles and a mixtape.

After over 13 years, the New Orleans born rapper finally released his debut full-length record last spring, “a mystical, distinctive work that nearly lives up to all the lore surrounding the rapper” (Pitchfork).

‘A Written Testimony’ distills Jay Electronica’s cerebral lyricism, singular delivery and profound spiritualism into “a biblical album for biblical times, with enough human flaws to make it imperfect” (CLASH).

Alongside the likes of Medhane, MIKE and Slauson Malone, Gumbani is helping to revive and reimagine the city’s boom-bap legacy. New project HGR Presents: A Thousand Months sees the rapper drop classic flows over sparkling beats that recall the likes of Just Blaze and NYC era Kanye. (CRACK)
