JAY ROYALE - "EBONICS"


"EBONICS" IS A REMAKE OF HARLEM, NEW YORK HIP-HOP LEDGEND BIG L'S TRACK OFF HIS "THE BIG PICTURE" ALBUM RELEASED AUGUST 1ST, 2000 ON RAWKUS RECORDS. BALTIMORE, MARYLAND EMCEE JAY ROYALE CAME UP WITH THE IDEA WHILE WATCHING A VADO FREESTYLE VIDEO. ROYALE PAYS HOMAGE TO THE CLASSIC BY USING THE ORIGINAL RON BROWSE INSTRUMENTAL. LINE FOR LINE HE DISPLAYS HIS WITTY WORDPLAY AND LYRICAL ABILTY WHILE BREAKING DOWN B'MORE SLANG. ROYALE'S GRITTY GOLDEN ERA HIP-HOP SOUND IS CLEARLY MISSING IN TODAY'S MAINSTREAM MUSIC.

CHECKOUT "EBONICS" AND JAY ROYALE'S PRIOR PROJECTS "THE DECLINE" AND "THE COLLAB WORK" EP AVAILABLE ON SPINRILLA.

FOLLOW JAY ROYALE (@JAYROYALE) ON INSTAGRAM AND BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR HIS FIRST ABLUM ENTITLED "THE IVORY STOOP" COMING SOON TO ALL DIGITAL PLATFORMS.
