Another smooth hip hop groove from the Jamla camp as their compilation album, Jamla Is The Squad, is shaping up to be something serious. It looks like 9th is reaching out to all his close connects in the game for some dope collab. Earlier this week it was Talib Kweli, eLZhi, & Phonte for “No Competition”. Today, it’s Pete Rock, Lecrae, and Rapsody linking over a Khrysis production for “Be Inspired”.
Pete Rock’s chill tone is the nice first match to the beat that may lull you in. I thought Lecrae picked up the energy next to keep me tuned in, as the alliteration he starts with is my favorite part of the song. Rapsody bats last and does her thing too, making sure this record is a complete one. Look for the full compilation project on January 28th.
