Bay Area emcee J.Lately teams up with fellow Bay Area Pop-Reggae outfit Lot 49 for this feel good Alt Hip-Hop / Pop-Reggae track.
J Lately and Lot 49 team Up for “Shouldn’t Do”
Over funky and upbeat bass driven production provided by West Coast Trey with bass guitar by Justin Kastner, the two artists drop some playful bars about a life on the go. The perfect weed and liquor fueled road trip anthem. This is the fifth stand alone single released by Lately this year, following his 2022 album ‘Breakfast’, which included features from Cam Meekins, Mark Battles, Locksmith, Blimes, and more.
J.Lately distinguishes himself as an emcee with his soulful style and laid back flow. A true appreciation for music along with the unique ability to put everyday life into a relatable perspective has allowed him to flourish in the Bay Area scene and beyond. His music possesses the rare ability to make you contemplate and vibe out simultaneously, finding the perfect balance between the conscious and the stoner. Coming from the small town of Sebastopol, and having split time between Oakland and Southern California, his influences are eclectic and mesh together effortlessly to form his own individual style. A relentless drive has kept Lately on tour across the country with artists such as Zion I, Andre Nickatina, Locksmith, and A-Plus of the Hieroglyphics.
