On his latest song “Survival”, Warp Records emcee/producer Jeremiah Jae links up with past Bad Jokes collaborator Oliver the 2nd. Here, the two ruminate on the struggles of growing up on the streets of Chicago and California’s Inland Empire, respectively. “Staring at the stars to remember we started,” they spit, while looking back how they broke free from their drug- and crime-ridden neighborhoods. Unlike last fall’s ghoulish and harrowing “Fun”, this one’s a decidedly more tamed, introspective, and soulful joint. Listen in below.
“Survival” is off Jeremiah Jae’s forthcoming mixtape, Good Times, due out soon.
