Ikey – “Return Of King Jaffe”

blame it on Meka May 11, 2015

After making his well-received arrival at the DopeHouse with his EP Green Card, Nigerian-bred and DC-reared aspiring super-emcee Ikey returns with a new offering.

“I’m really just flexing on the record,” says the Criminal Justice graduate of the compelling track that has echoes of a J.Cole with an African twist. One thing; is this a track dedication to James Earl Jones in Coming To America? “It’s kinda dedicated to James Earl Jones,” he laughs. “I used to rock a dope fur hat back in the day that kinda looked like the hat James Earl Jones wore in Coming to America. Since I’m African, people used to call me King Jaffe. I dropped a project Coming to America back in the day too so the joke just stuck. James Earl Jones is definitely the Gawd tho.”
