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.

“I got a Passion, man..” – Haroldy

“Baker baker baker” – Wordsworth

“Aye, one time for Walter Gaybe. He’d be proud.” – Dirk Berkelson



death is a heavy thing so we had to keep this light. i have put off writing anything public about the loss of my friend mostly because it’s hard for me to put these feelings into words. we put this out because the chan man would want everybody to have a good time. this tape is dedicated to josh chandler. jota ese on the beat hoe and that bastard menace on mic. lil bro. dude came thru and spit this all first take and promptly left for a 2-week bender.

shaqueef o’chan was a huge part of the original day old crew. he loved skateboarding, wu-tang clan, and hats. josh chandler was a dependable buddy who was always down. he is my friend and i will always miss him.

“baker!” – wordsworth
