genius

Jay Moses is a staple of Champaign-Urbana hip-hop, and I’m happy to stay that. Along with his posse The Gr8 Thinkaz, Jay Moses has built a nice buzz around C-U with a steady amount of shows and releases. Today, Mr. Moses brings us his newest EP, #TheGenius, which Jay tells me was recorded entirely in one day. The tape itself is varied, borrowing some soulful samples and acapella verses which allow for turning up, turning down, or even turning sideways. Look for Jay to be performing throughout the C-U area soon, including a set at Pygmalion with his band The Struggle and another with UPC-favorite Frank Leone on August 29th at Cowboy Monkey. In the mean-time, stream and download #TheGenius below.
