Party Supplies’ Justin Nealis announced yesterday (January 23) that the group has recorded an EP as Jericho, a collective that features Alchemist and Action Bronson. However, Bronson has addressed the discussion about Jericho with his own statement.
“It’s nothing official,” Bronson said in an interview with XXL. “It’s a collective of people—Oh No, Sean [Mahon] who is also in Party Supplies, Tommy Mas. It’s just a collective of people of human beings that make music.”
That music may not be what some fans might expect from the group, according to Bronson.
“Something is gonna come out of it and it’s probably not going to be Rap,” Bronson said. “It’s probably going to be some next level shit.”
The notion of a genre-bending project was also discussed in Nealis’ announcement of Jericho during his interview with HipHopDX.
“We went out to LA with [Bronson] last month—me, him, Alchemist, and Sean [Mahon] recorded an entire EP of material under the name Jericho,” Nealis said in the interview. “Jericho may be a project that we drop, that’s really under-the-table, no one knows about that yet. Jericho may just be like a multi-genre, no label EP that may cross genres from Hip Hop to Electro to ‘80s Pop. We may bridge the gap with that actually, because some of the stuff we recorded for that, one of the songs sounds like a late ‘80s Smokey Robinson record and shit. And then, there’s some Surf Rock on there that sounds like the Beach Boys and Bronson’s rhyming on it. Alchemist made the beat. We rented pianos and keyboards. We rented a Wurlitzer, we rented a bass, we rented a few guitars and shit. We recorded a lot of original material that kind of has a very Electro sound and we’re calling it Jericho.”
