Jabee joins us with his new EP titled “Good.”
OKC-based rapper Jabee is proud to announce the release of his new EP “Good” produced entirely by Grammy award winning producer Conductor Williams. The five-track EP includes features from Boldy James, Blu, and Scoopay. “Good” is the third EP from Jabee’s full length forthcoming album “Am I Good Enough” due out in 2023.
On “Good,” Jabee showcases his talented lyrical ability over Conductor Williams intricate and masterful production. Jabee on working with Conductor Williams, “I’ve known him for years , and we worked together in the past. I’m humbled that he’s down to fit me in while working on so many projects with way bigger names.”In addition to providing stellar production to the project, Conductor Williams also provided direction when it came to Jabee’s songwriting. He explains, “Songwriting was organic because Conductor Williams would give directions or themes in the samples or beat titles, so I followed his lead.”
Jabee will share his full-length LP “Am I Good Enough” in 2023. Several years in the making, “Am I Good Enough” compiles four EPs of brand-new music (22 tracks total), each recorded entirely with a different producer. EP’s “Am” produced by Derek Minor, and “I” produced by Blu were released earlier this year with Conductor Williams-produced “Good” as the latest EP. “Enough,” the last EP of the series is produced by Havoc and will be released in February 2023. Each project, unique in tone, could stand alone as individual works, but when combined make one of the most powerful and compelling artistic statements of Jabee’s career.
Jabee explaining the rollout, “My last album “This World Is So Fragile and Cruel I’m Glad I Got You” came out in the middle of Covid and I felt like I missed an opportunity to make a bigger impact, so I wanted to release something in 4 parts to spread out throughout the year.” As for the inspiration behind the title Jabee states, “After all I’ve done and the release of my last album feeling like I’m so close to reaching a new level each time but not getting there. I don’t know if it’s one song away, one verse , a release, a write up or cosign away from reaching the next level. I’ve been asking myself “Am I good enough.”
