JPEGMAFIA – “Millennium Freestyle”

Earlier this year, the Baltimore-adjacent, LA-based rapper JPEGMAFIA released Veteran, an album that made murky lo-fi rap exciting. It landed on our Best Albums Of 2018 So Far list and today he’s shared an outtake from those sessions. “Millennium Freestyle” twists the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” into a hazy cloud punctuated by stray samples and a riff on “My Boo.” Listen to it below and check out JPEGMAFIA’s just-announced tour dates.
