Feel Real Swag has been working with Jabari Kiongozi (JK) since the beginning, and today we bring to you his highly anticipated project, The False Start. This dope new mixtape is a collection of tracks Jabari has recorded (and some released) in the past year. Each track stands on it’s own, but together they tell the story of JK’s development as an artist over that time. This mixtape has something for everyone with Jabari jumping on everything from Zeds Dead to the James Bond-esque sounds of Audiodoctor. The final track is producer by HunkE, whom he plans to work with more in the near future. By being relentless, versatile, and striving to always improve as an emcee, JK has shown that he has what it takes to make it in this industry. As always, FRS is proud to sponsor and support this young artist on his grind, so make sure to do the same by downloading his new project. Enjoy!

It’s been a while since I’ve heard some new material from Cam Meekins, but his newest track “Cut Me Off” reminds us that the kid has some serious talent. Definitely a solid use of sampling here, using Gotye’s hit track “Somebody That I Used To Love.” Give it a listen..
