West Coast spitter JAG wants to prove he gets better with each passing year. The South Central native has released the appropriately titled Older The Berry, Sweeter The Juice EP to make his point.

“I can’t rewind time,” he tells HipHopDX. “I won’t ever be one of these 18, 19-year-olds that’s gettin’ signed left and right today, but music — like any craft — takes time, practice and a lot of dedication in order to really be great. So while I’m not gettin’ any younger I feel as though with each year in this game not only am I gettin’ better but sonically I’m in a place where I know I can compete with anybody, even these kids today.”

The 36-year-old MC adds, “People tend to know me best for my bars and I’m proud of that, but I wanna be a pen that niggas in the industry feel they can turn to if they need a single.”
