Jamo Gang drops another single off their debut release Walking With Lions, this time releasing one of the more anticipated cuts. The 1st Time features piano driven production from the legendary DJ Premier and an appearance from Atmosphere lead man Slug and Tyler Kimbro.
Check out what JG members El Gant and J57 said about the track and working with Primo:
El Gant on the new Jamo Gang single: “We were al in the studio hanging out with Premier one night, and Preem played a few things he had in the chamber. We really liked the vibe to it, and the rest is history. J57 thought it was the perfect song to ask Slug to be a part of and he was with it. It is really exciting for us to have these two together for the first time on one of our songs.”
J57 rhyming on a Premo beat for the first time: “This song means a LOT to us. This is my first time rhyming on a DJ Premier beat and working with Slug, two people I’ve looked up to for many years before becoming friends with them. This is is perfect. Premier even brought in legendary piano player, Tyler Kimbro to bless the track, which was also an honor.”
