Jabee is getting ready to release his new album “This World Is So Fragile And Cruel I’m Glad I Got You” on May 22nd.
For the project’s first single, “Checmate”, Jabee has combined the talents of Lil B and Slug (of Atmosphere) to rock on the Statik Selektah-produced cut.
“The concept really came from Lil B,” Jabee reveals. “I was in NY at Statik’s studio and heard the beat. I did my verse and sent it to Lil B to peep and what he sent back really changed the direction of the song. “At the same time I was also talking to Slug about a track and he really liked the Statik beat and it all came together from there. I identify with both Slug and Lil B in different ways and that duality really shines through on this track.”
