ALBUM REVIEW: California Hip Hop Artist Jamall Joseph Drops Hot New Album, '1271'

 

Jamall Joseph is a cool California artist with a sound that blends the smoothness of R&B with a twist of hip hop's realness. He just dropped a new album entitled "1271" on streaming platforms, and I had a chance to check it out. Just imagine 90s R&B summer jams, sex, soul, and romance.

"1271" is in a category of what I call foreplay music. I think of groups like Immature, Pretty Ricky, Jodeci, and singers like Trey Songs and Usher. But this usually becomes baby making music. And these kinds of songs can play forever. That's the feel of Joseph's new 9 track project. 

A couple standouts include the opener, Red Velvet. It's all seductive and soulful vibes on this track which also features Shyloh Grey. Another dope song on the album is City of Angels ft.. It's Mar & Symba. It's an easy, breezy song that he delivers on vocally with a catchy hook. Jamall Joseph's vocals really shine on this track. And the rap verses add a crispy edge to the song. Definitely worthy of a smooth rap playlist selection. 

"Drippin on your body is my potion."
On Truth Hurts, Joseph enlisted rapper, Young Rome, from the late 90’s group IMX, first known as Immature. Rome spits off a fire verse where he raps, "I miss coming home to your pretty face, but I rather dip cuz I don't need a case." The song also features movie producer and R&B singer, I Rich. Together, they make the song a whole vibe.




I really enjoyed the versatility of the sound and the uniqueness of each track--this is highlighted with features from some of California’s hottest underground hip hop artists and R&B singers.
