London rapper Jay Prince has released his new Smile Good project. The eight-song release includes the early-Kanye-aping ‘Father Father‘ plus a collaboration with Michael Christmas on ‘Squad‘. Across the remaining six songs, the British artist calls on Danny Seth, Raheaven and Jordan Rakei for help as he offers a sermon on developing your talents and mind to bring out of dark or stagnant places. The tape blends gospel and jazz elements with a more modern hip hop milieu, and serves as a perfect addition to any playlist.
In a press release accompanying the project, Jay describes Smile Good as follows: “With this mixtape I wanted to highlight the hard times in my life, my background, my upbringing, relationships I have been in and also my religion. All the pivotal moments that have made me who I am at this moment in time“.
Jay Prince will support Chance The Rapper on his upcoming tour dates in Europe. Stream the project below, and cop the mixtape on iTunes
