Fresh faced literal Los Angeles backpacker Jake Kost has just released an 8 track EP titled Niggativity. Despite the deceivingly happy title (/sarcasm), it’s the kind of solid MC’ing that tends to coming out of the heavy underrated Cali rap scene. It’s as if between the long reign of southern hip-hop in the mainstream and NYC insistence that they still matter has forced them to go harder in everything they do to get attention. Here Planet Asia steps out and gives the new kid a hand. You can catch the song for his video “Bad Man Ting (RNS)” below, and his ep here.
