Hailing from the small country town of Wexford, Ireland is Rob Kelly — an emcee/producer closely affiliated with La Coka Nostra’s Slaine, also of Irish ancestry.
After initially making his name known around these parts last month with his Kel Jefe lead single “Eff Mitch Green,” Rob gloves up for another round of shadowboxing in the studio on the album’s title track, “Kel Jefe.”
Set off by dialogue sampled from the 1973 film High Plains Drifter starring Clint Eastwood, the dusty, dystopian sounds of “Kel Jefe” (a play on the Spanish word for “el jefe” or “the boss”) gives Rob the perfect backdrop to commence a nearly 4 1/2 minute session of soundbwoy microphone killin’ where no one is safe, and anybody can get it. Don’t believe us? Listen to the Tony Mahoney-produced banger for yourself below.
Pre-order Kel Jefe on iTunes, out June 10th via Soulspazm Records.
