Up-and-coming hip hop producer J57 from Brooklyn (by way of Long Island) steps out from behind the boards and jumps into the sound booth. Not limiting to just production, J57 has teased us a few times already, showing off his vocal skills on hooks and guest verses. Last year, the acclaimed producer secretly recorded a rap album with only the people involved knowing about the project. Tonight, we’re lucky to premiere his first full rap album, “Wax Poetics” featuring guest appearances from ATR, Denmark Vessey, Tenacity, Virtue, Mike Maven, Katiah, Akie Bermiss, Co$$, Johaz and Choosey with production from the artist himself, Exile, PJ Katz, Wally Sean and DeeJay Element. And if you’re unfamiliar with J57’s work thus far, he’s produced for his hip hop collective Brown Bag AllStars along with other notable acts such as Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Joell Ortiz, Homeboy Sandman, Sene and many more.
