JOTA ESE’s suprises everyone with the quickness of his new tape, 24 HOUR DICK. Featuring the most exciting lineup thusfar, the tape clocks in at 20 min of pure lo-fi bliss. Guest features include T.I., Andre 3000, Rich Homie Quan, Desiigner, 50 Cent, Richard Swift, and more! Trilobite Donuts’ bagmen Terry and Gary Larkin, along with associate Dirk Berkelson, are all here in signature form; it swings, it slaps, it forms a circle..might lose my jacket and hit a solo. Who’s Dick, you might ask? Well I’m not sure, JOTA said it wasnt about anybody in particular. It could be someone who’s a jerk all the time. It could be a penis; or it could be the soundtrack of a crazy day-in-the-life of #RichardHarper. It’s likely we’ll never know (unless JOTA comes unhinged on twitter again) and, yeah, I guess this means Paid In Steak is still on the way. S/O Ric at Deathspan Studios for the album artwork.

Here it is, folks. Virgo Season is here and JOTA ESE has given us another reason to celebrate. Completed over a year ago, U SAY PROBLEM / I SAY PASSION has been sitting in limbo for no good reason other than that JOTA was saving it for something. I know I said Paid In Steak was coming soon, and it still might be, but right now we get this one. Fair. For the first time in a while, JOTA has seperated all the tracks (due to some pressure from DJ Diamond Nights and your’s truely). The new tape features guest appearances from Juelz Santana and Max B. S/O Tyler Davis for the artwork assist! Download/stream for free.

JOTA ESE comes from left field with a short tape he calls “EXOTIC DAVE.” Featuring guest appearances from Boosie, Kodak Black, and Marshawn Lynch (!), this is the prequel to the long awaited PAID IN STEAK tape – coming later this summer. In classic JOTA fashion, the production is assisted by OG Terry Larkin and was recorded at Monsta Island and Day Old Studio B. Dedicated in loving memory of Bob Goldstone. Download/stream the mini-tape for free. S/O Deathspan Studios for the cover!
“Who’s Dave?” – Curtis Jenkins
“Louuunted as always, looking forward to that Steak tape tho…” – Wordsworth
America’s Most Lounted is back! JOTA ESE presents SUPER DANK V, featuring an all-star lineup that includes Young Buck, 50 Cent, T.I., Gucci Mane, Sean Pablo, Harold Hunter, Mobb Deep, Raekwon, Kanye West, and more. SUPER DANK V is 20 minutes worth of lo-fi beats, mostly created on the SP-404 and BOSS-202 samplers at very late hours. S/O Ric Dad for the cover art (courtesy of Deathspan Studios).
“KING JOTA” – Curtis Jenkins
