Yesterday was a good day to be a rap fan, as we were blessed with the arrival of three very strong albums from across the board. One of those was the reunion album from L’Orange and Jeremiah Jae, as they returned to the studio to build on the successful foundations of their 2015 offering, The Night Took Us In Like Family.
Supporters of that album will no doubt be very happy to hear that the follow-up, Complicate Your Life With Violence, continues in much the same vein but with a touch more edge to it. It’s predominantly similar in terms of sound, thanks to L’Orange’s sample hunting which again is heavily comprised of 1940’s detective films, but the resulting beats stray into slightly more intriguing areas, as with the previously released, Borrowed Brass, featuring Zeroh and Lojii. Overall the features are incredibly strong, with some stellar contributions from billy woods, Chester Watson, as well as Jae’s own pen game which retains the mystique and attraction of his previous works. The album can be heard in full below and you can grab a download over on Bandcamp.
