L.A. rapper on the rise drops his highly anticipated debut album, featuring Denzel Curry, Ty Dolla $ign and more

After a massive 2022 that saw him receive widespread acclaim and praise, attention-grabbing rapper JELEEL! has finally dropped his energetic & in your face debut album of genre-blurring hip hop sounds.

Across seventeen tracks, JELEEL! covers a lot of ground as he injects elements from hyperpop, r&b and even punk into his unique brand of modern trappy flavour, bringing the likes of Denzel Curry, Ty Dolla $ign and Chow Lee coming along for the ride on a feature each. Citing heavy inspiration from both the late great DMX and wrestling icon Jeff Hardy gives a decent idea of the larger than life vibes to expect from the record.

With his debut album now out to the world, we can only assume JELEEL! will continue his rise, which is all the more impressive considering his backstory. The Nigerian Rhode-Island born artist found himself homeless living on the streets of L.A. before making his first forays into music in 2019, blowing up with last year’s single DIVE IN!, and now dropping his album.
