JPEGMAFIA Releases “Millenium” and Announces Tour

JPEGMAFIA has been making weird industrial rap music since 2015 and has steadily built up a career as a wry, insightful rapper making political and social commentary through the language of an internet obsessive, pushing the boundaries of the Lil B-type cloud rap that led to the most recent Soundcloud era. In 2018, he released his album Veteran, an extremely lo-fi and punkish collection of experimental rap music that smart and funny in equal measure.

Today JPEG has released “Millenium,” a leftover from the album that sees the rapper interpolating both Ghost Town DJ’s “My Boo” and the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” in a bleak, nightmarish rendition with dreamy synths and deep, suffocating drums. JPEGMAFIA also shows off his talent as a singer, tenderly belting out the classic Backstreet Boys’ record as earnestly as it was originally intended. JPEGMAFIA will be embarking on his “The Reverse Christopher Columbus” tour across North America and Europe this fall. See show dates for the tour and Listen to “Millenium” below.
