Let’s begin with the obvious: Jay Hype is who you need to know, what you need to breathe, and who you need to be following as she re-releases her debut EP, NEA, through Kolbat. “NEA” is an acronym for “Not Emotionally Available”, a mood this rapper wears quite well.
We were first introduced to young Hype in 2014 when the legendary Kanye West popped up at an open mic event in New Jersey to support her. And in 2016, when West mysteriously tweeted a link to, Who Did It Better, the predeceasing project to NEA. This tweet caused quite an Internet frenzy as West fans begged to know who this rapper was.
Before then, you may have not known much about Jay Hype, but this year the 20 year old is on a mission to claim 2018 as her own as she gears up for the re-release of NEA.
With this EP, Hype delivers an assortment of unforgettable tracks, combining the pulsating sounds of EDM, and groundbreaking aura of Hip-Hop as she describes navigating through the trials and tribulations of life, drugs, women, and newfound fame.
NEA starts with a brisk awakening “Lost” then follows through with a melodic ballot “Lines”; capturing her urge to be the “best out”; ending with “People”—a cocky, yet rebellious track where she silences her opposition.
Through and through, NEA offers a certain cynicism, a refreshing break from today’s “mumble rap” generation. There is not a moment where Hype loses your engagement; each track has a new burst of energy, injecting levels of euphoric sensations complimented with the rapper’s soothing, yet raspy tone.
In a world where the distribution is key, NEA is definitely the perfect playlist to stream for your every day mood.
