For five minutes over Jazzy Jeff’s emotional production, Jordan rips bars sharing his story of making it as an emcee all the way up to the point of recording with the legendary producer. From working at Foot Locker and meeting one of the people who gave him the confidence to selling his shirts outside fitting rooms to meeting Lupe Fiasco, Jordan’s “In Progress” shows in career is that and some. With bars, confidence and passion like the ones he delivered, this won’t be the last time you hear him.
In the song’s new visual, the emcee starts sharing the history of his parents and what they did in the city before his ridiculous bars are played over images of Philadelphia and moments he mentioned in the song, like meeting Lupe.
Watch the video for “In Progress,” off his Memoirs of Dayne Jordan out July 21, above.
