The project features feature production from Grammy Award winning producer Symbolic One 88 Keys, Statik Selektah and also guest appearances from Wale, Slug (atmosphere) and Lil B ThaBasedGod
With the announcement of his new album, Jabee also released the projects first single â€œChecmate,â€ which features Slug and Lil B. The track is produced by Statik Selektah.
â€œThe concept for â€œChecmateâ€ really came from Lil B. I was in NY at Statikâ€™s s studio and heard the beat. I did my verse and sent it to Lil B to peep and what he sent back really changed the direction of the songâ€ Jabee recalled. â€œAt the same time I was also talking to Slug about a track and he really liked the Statik beat and it all came together from there. I identify with both Slug and Lil B in different ways and that duality really shines
