Planet Asia and Jay-Ef join us today with the new visual for “Waterfront Video.”
In perhaps the greatest hip-hop heist duo since Camp Lo, west coast emcee Planet Asia and east coast turntablist Jay-Ef join forces. New single “Waterfront” (Produced by IzzNyce) is out now for digital purchase/stream and gives you an idea of the deft cuts and lyrical barrage in store. Check the accompanying video (below) for a visual display of the skills for any boom-bap head.
This is the first leak from the Cash Or Caskets LP (Anazach Records) which officially drops on 4/1 and will also be released in a variety of physical formats as well as with official merch. More info: https://cashorcaskets.com/ speaking on the album title Jay-Ef revealed there is a heist theme throughout the album via skits “so it’s a get rich or die trying analogy.”
Friends for over twenty years, the duo first linked up in 2000 when Jay-Ef caught wind of this up-and-coming emcee from California and decided to bring him over to record a single with Talib Kweli (“Don’t Let Up”) for his Mona Records label. That trip being Asia’s first trip to the Big Apple. Most recently Asia returned the favor appearing on a track for Jay-Ef’s debut EP Believe It Or Not (2021).
