We recently had a chat with 22-year old, new school rapper and producer J Molley. He recently dropped new single, Ang’na Stress featuring Yanga Chief and Costa Titch from his upcoming star-studded mixtape All Is Fair In Love and War. The song has a very South African sound, something we haven’t heard from Molley before.
J Molley broke down how the collaboration came about and why he decided to go with Costa Titch and Yanga Chief.
Molley’s upcoming 14-track upcoming project features collaborations with a variety of new school and seasoned hip-hop artists. Nadia Nakai, Riky Rick, Frank Casino and fellow rank-climber and amapiano singer, Focalistic all make an appearance on the tape. Describing his evolution as an artist, especially on this new mixtape, J Molley said:
“What I feel is, I’ve become way more versatile as oppose to what I used to be in the past. But ive still managed to keep my old sound. So this project doesn’t lack the old me”, he explains. He also explained that sometimes fans complain that they want the old artist, whereas on this tape, he encampssed the old him with an updated sound and more room to experiment.
“It’s very similar to my first tape that I dropped which a lot of fans loved, Dreams Money Can Buy, it has that element to it. But at the same time, it’s not just one thing”, he says.
Also known as the Hood Pharmacist, J Molley born Jesse Mollett hails from Centurion. The rising rapper has done exceptionally well in earning his stripes in the industry. He actively built a solid fan base when his music career took off on Soundcloud getting him over 10 000 hits on his first single and he has never looked back.
