As if juggling a full-time job as a label head, A&R, producer/beatmaker, rapper and collaborator wasn’t enough, DopeHouse O.G. J57 also balances time putting together many various side projects with both old and new friends.
Those who follow him on social media may have witnessed the Brown Bag AllStar teasing yet another new project under the cloak of the name The Aware Wolves — a brilliant double entendre of a name if I ever saw/heard one.
Comprised of J57 and longtime friend Thomas Phenomas (again, another clever name), the two will be soon releasing their The Aware Wolves EP 1 later this summer. A little info on Thomas: a multi-instrumentalist musician, rapper and singer from Queens, New York, who was around in the early days of BBAS, who has toured with the likes of El-P, Yak Ballz, Cage and more.
Listen to the first single, “13 Ghosts & How I Lost My Mind” below.
