Supergroup Jamo Gang, which consists of the legendary Ras Kass, rapid-fire emcee El Gant, and producer extraordinaire J57, have been on a roll lately promoting their upcoming project, Walking With Lions, expected May 8th via Fat Beats.
Today, Jamo release their fourth single off their LP titled “Runyon Canyon”. This new single comes with an unexpected feature by Sid Wilson aka DJ Starscream of the iconic metal group, Slipknot, produced by both J57 and PJ Katz.
Here’s J57 speaking on the creation of “Runyon Canyon”:
While I was in LA I linked up with close Jamo Gang friend, Sid Wilson aka DJ Starscream of Slipknot. I played Sid the Jamo Gang album, which was 99% finished at that point. I showed him the last song we were working on (which later became “Runyon Canyon”) and told him it would be dope if he hopped on that record & we keep it as a surprise from Ras Kass & El Gant til the song’s finished. Sid was down with that idea, but he and his band Slipknot were leaving in 2 days on a huge world tour. So, Sid brought his gear with him. He did the scratches and his vocals in his hotel room in Amsterdam while on FaceTime with me.
