Music: Japhia Life's New Single "Cloud"

Courtesy Illect Recordings.

The latest single "Cloud" produced by North Carolina up and comer J Rodgers off of Japhia Life's critically acclaimed new LP "Westside Pharmacy", with it's minimalistic and menacing 808 littered instrumental sounds like a blast from past 80's era hardcore hip-hop, while still showcasing a progressive sonic soundscape. The reality of Japhia's artistic self conscious shows up in lines like "See I started rapping in 94, Why you think I sound like I'm from the 90's for". Artistically, a "Cloud" is meant to be slang for a thought or a message in terms of it's meaning. With that said... "Just make sure it's loud, now that's a Cloud. That's real though".

I present to you an album that has made army vets shed tears,
ex-bible school teachers who did heroin share their testimonies, &
made philosophers rethink their way of thinking.
Yet certain bible stores won't carry the CD because its according to the bible!
The "HI" album...
