Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) April 21, 2014 -- The hip hop artist known as Jay.En.P has released his debut EP record, "You Figure It Out." The album is the first in a series of releases titled "You Figure It Out" planned for release through 2014 and 2015. It has been released on the Circle Road music label. A contemporary hip-hop record with elements of old-school and new-school rap styles, "You Figure It Out" showcases razor sharp production and flawless performances across six original Jay.En.P titles.
An official video for "Born to Rise" (Track 4) which features appearances by featured performers Kurious and Sadat X has also been released.
In addition to the considerable skills of Jay.En.P himself, "You Figure It Out" also features the talents of a great many popular performers. This list includes Raydar Ellis, Baxter P. Wordsworth, John Robinson, Sadat X, Nick Hakim, D.O. Ceasar, Ruste Juxx, F.T., Kurious, G.O., and Shelene Thomas. This montage of creativity adds an enormous amount of texture to Jay.En.P's already remarkable album, providing depth and tonal complexity to his straightforward, no-nonsense style of songwriting.
Jay.En.P began his music career as an emcee, then studied jazz piano while learning to produce music for the hip-hop genre. He cites as main artistic influences DJ Premier, The Beanuts, Pete Rock, Outkast, MMW, Herbie Hancock, and in his own words, "countless others." The hip-hop producer from West Virginia moved to New York City in 2007 and has worked with a bevy of brilliant musicians since. His flagship debut singles, "Delusional" and "Pythagorean" were published early in 2014. The latter appears as the third track on "You Figure It Out."
Jay.En.P has also hinted that there may be more projects in store for his fans over the course of the next few months, though his main body of work will continue to be the "You Figure It Out" line. The rapper has not provided details of these plans except to mention them as "several other projects slated for release through 2015."
"You Figure It Out" by Jay.En.P is available online worldwide. Get in early.
