Deathbomb Arc, 2018
Cassette Tape

Genuine post-regional/digital-native rap from Brooklyn-via-Alabama-via-Baltimore-via-the-Air-Force-via-the-internet rapper JPEGMAFIA. Following a string of extremely underground cassette-only releases, his latest reveals an artist who is fully immersed in both internet and hip hop culture in all of their many intersecting forms, but who never allows himself to defined by any one of them. He jumps back and forth between lithe Soundcloud beats and abrasive Death Grips type squall, he name checks fallen message boards and threatens to beat up yuppies in the same breath, he buries his tongue so firmly in cheek with all that mecha meta troll humor but proceeds to rap his ass off.
