In the grand tradition of The Beastie Boys and 3rd Bass, it’s…Jesse Abraham. Who? Never mind – here he is with a new EP and a banger of a single on his hands in the shape of Spiderman On Vitaminswhich comes on like a cross between the Beasties and Wretch 32’s Traktor – see vid. below after the 33 seconds footage of (what I assume is) him rapping as a lil nipper). I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard of Jesse before this but I think it’s safe to say I might pay a little more attention in future if the EP is anything to go by – new school production flourishes and an old school aesthetic – ooh – it’s like hip-hop alchemy!
(PRESS RELEASE) A veteran of the NYC underground scene, with a handful of mixtapes already to his credit (DJbooth.net premiered his last mixtape ), Jesse Abraham released his debut EP “The One Day” today!
