Brooklyn Emcee/Producer JK1 presents “Overstood” Visual

Brooklyn emcee/producer JK1 presents “Overstood”, the new single from Hip-Hop Doesn’t Love You Back, his forthcoming debut solo album featuring A.G. of D.I.T.C. and Roc Doogie. Currently residing in Tampa Bay, FL, JK1 released three volumes of his 1st Come 1st Served series (Bandcamp) and produced the bulk of Queens emcee Truth’s 2016 album From Ashes To Kingdom Come (watch the music video for “New Type Of Something” featuring Sean Price). JK1 is a former member of Connecticut-based underground collective Antfarm Affiliates, and his former crew Phenetiks landed a spot on the Rawkus 50 in 2007. “The title Hip-Hop Doesn’t Love You Back started off as a joke that came from a conversation with a close friend,” JK1 says. “Basically talking about all the work we did together years ago, and the love we did it with. Fast forward a bit, and now it’s less of a joke and more of an acknowledgement of where things are with my personal relationship with music, and my surroundings. Last year I lost my wife and partner of 14 years to stage 4 cancer. I wasn’t going to finish this project, but after losing my wife… it’s one of very few things that kept me going. She’s my inspiration for everything I do going forward.”

EyeonEyez releases new single “Bruce Wayne” with Rich Lugar & NYY Brim

Mysterious and original, masked musician EyeOnEyez burst onto the scene with a fresh new sound that’s aggressive yet cerebral and haunting at the same time. A lot is yet to be learned about this figure EyeOnEyez, but his artistry and ability to bring hot new artists together with rap legends is something the industry has been craving for a while.

One can only assume he has spent years underground crafting his unique style of sound, informed by an eclectic taste in jazz, electronica, trap and hardcore hip hop. His aggressive production and infectious rhythmic style deliver a visceral listening experience with every track.

In 2017, Eyez and his team connected with Hip Hop Legend Prodigy to record “Out Queens.” Sadly, Prodigy passed prematurely soon after. Just like his other work, this final track “Out Queens” utilizes EyeOnEyez signature sound: lush synths, haunting melodies, kamikaze trap drums and melt-your-face-off 808’s.

EyeOnEyez teases a full length album featuring Wu Tang Clan, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, as well as a few up and coming artists from his own label.

EyeOnEyez draws on his vast and deep musical influences and voracious trap-inspired drum sound to deliver an aural landscape that transports you to another world. Power producer and label boss, EyeOnEyez cuts through the noise like a laser beam, combining his unstoppable instinct for innovation with one-of-a-kind sound design and otherworldly visual imagery.
