I2G chilled with the supergroup, Jamo Gang, for a exclusive interview. We discuss their new self titled EP, plans of dropping a full length LP and much more so check it out.
I2G is here with Jamo Gang, how’s it going?
It’s going great, thanks! Our EP is out and we’re loving the great feedback.
Tell me a little bit about how you guys came together as a group.
We linked up very organically; originally just making some songs together for fun. With the push of a lot of our friends, including DJ Premier, we realized that this should be a real group and really focus on that. Great decision
You dropped your new self titled EP which came out today. Tell me a little bit about the EP and how it came together for you.
We originally created a full LP over the course of 2016 and a little of 2017. Once we were finished with it, we decided to cut some songs and turn it into a strong EP…and THEN we’ll finish up the official LP / create a ton of new songs for it. We stuck with that gameplan and now we have an EP out / we’re finishing up our debut LP! Download the EP here: https://jamogang.bandcamp.com/album/jamo-gang-ep
Do you have any more upcoming videos?
We currently have a music video out for ”All Eyes On Us” .. a video for ”Welcome to the Golden Era” will be dropping next week or the week after that, followed by a video for ”Go Away”.
Any plans for a full length LP in the future and if so any DJ Premier collaborations?
The LP should be coming out by the end of the year. We dont want to give away any surprises!
What are your current thoughts on the state of hip hop?
I think it’s dope. There are a lot of really dope hip hop artists out there right now, making really incredible music.
What is currently playing on your playlist musically?
The Jamo Gang EP has been all we been listening to lately. I dont listen the music I create a lot, while I’m creating it (there’s a methodology to it) so I’m currently binging the EP ha!
Do you have any shows or tour dates?
US tours, Canadian tour, European tour – all happening this year. Dates will be announced soon!
