The G.A.W.D.S make their SpitFireHipHop debut with “Jaffe Joffer Jr.” featuring Copywrite.
Baltimore hip-hop quartet G.A.W.D.S has returned with new heater “Jaffe Joffer Jr.” Composed of Regulus (aka Reggy Runt), Pinpoint, L3 and DJ Rocky Styles the members bring that raw boom-bap to your ears with additional firepower courtesy of guest Copywrite.
Speaking on the track Regulus (who also produced the track revealed: “This was actually the last joint we recorded for our album (Gloria) so it has a raw and rushed quality to it but that’s the way we liked it. The album title is actually in reference to Pinpoint’s mom, who passed a few months before we recorded and my grandmother (both who were named Gloria). Pinpoint busted out the lyric about ‘I copped my pops some pumas, call me Jaffe Joffer Junior’ about supporting his dad and we ended up making that part of the hook. We wanted someone to jump on the third verse and kill it and always wanted to work with Copywrite. We have some mutual acquaintances and got in touch. He was actually pretty excited to lay his verse and tagged us on IG after recording.”
G.A.W.D.S (which stands for “Going At Whoever Don’t Surrender”) formed in late 2016, though all the members were active in the Baltimore hip hop scene for years prior. In 2017 they released their For Gawds Sake mixtape, followed by the self-titled release of their debut LP in 2018. This was soon followed by the Say Grace EP (also in 2018) and The Other Side in 2020.
