Ye Ali has officially released his long-awaited project, TRAPHOUSEJODECI. The album process began over a year ago during a time where Ye was discovering his melodic style while sharpening his skills as a songwriter by penning records for up-and-coming artists throughout the Los Angeles area. Yet as his juxtaposition to success changed, so did Ye Ali’s sound–eclipsed with a passion for hook-driven production with swells of influence stemming from the likes of Sade, Elton Jon, and Jodeci.

The most recent transformation is poignantly captured in the 12-track offering that the world is receiving now. The project comes complete with a handwritten note from the artist himself: “To my fans: Thank you for waiting so long for me. I spent countless nights recording for THJ. I hope this album makes you as happy as it makes me.”
