We’ve had San Francisco’s The Jealous Guys on our radar ever since they properly entered the scene early this summer with the alarmingly mature and accomplished Ballad, off their upcoming ‘The Love Mixtape’. Here they seem to have married the glitchy, ethereal aesthetic that has had groups like Main Attrakionz knocking in people’s earbuds, with a gutsier, meatier groove and flow that feels nostalgic but undeniably current.

This release also marks yet another unexpected, but assured move by the label you just can’t pigeonhole. With a roster that includes The Pack, Killer Mike, Big L, Messy Marv, Stevie Joe, Erk Tha Jerk and Duke Da God, the only thing SMC could be accused of is having impeccably good taste in music.
