J-Live is back with a new project titled At The Date Of This Writing (Vol. 2). The 14-track EP consists of six interludes and eight actual songs, including standouts “Money and Power” and “Roll Tide.”

“I do the EPs as Bandcamp exclusives so there’s something for people to purchase and subscribe to outside of the main full length albums I put on all platforms,” J-Live tells HipHopDX. “At The Date of This Writing as a series is a kind of lyrical personal journal of thoughts and experiences for the season.”

The former English teacher continued, “I made the interludes in-between separate tracks so that once purchased, people can opt to keep them in a playlist or not. I get tired of interludes at the end of songs personally.”

At The Date of This Writing (Vol. 2) serves as the follow-up to 2016’s At The Date of This Writing (Vol. 1). The veteran MC/producer will return with a new full length album in spring 2020.
