Happy Veteran’s Day. No better record to spin today.
Now Spinning: JPEGMAFIA - Veteran (2018) [Neon Pink 2019 Tour Edition vinyl - limited to 750 copies]
Damn, Peggy! @jpegmafia is a U.S. military veteran who essentially began his music career during active duty. 2018’s Veteran served as Peggy’s breakout, serving up complex samples and beats complimented by frenetic and impressive rhymes and wordplay. Peggy attempts to shed the stigmas and preconceived notions of what it means to be a veteran over 19 tracks. An absolute banger and one of my favorite albums of the last 5 years.
