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
