While the name Jamo Gang may ring out as unfamiliar to most of the rap world, the genesis of this trio began in 2015. Comprised of Ras Kass, El Gant and producer-rapper J57 made their official debut with “Here We Go Again” featuring Big Twins.
A few days later, DJ Premier popped up showing his support for the newly minted group — just ahead of the release of their debut album, slated for a later summer release.
In a short video shot captured by Civil Productions, Ras Kass and El Gant explain the origins of the group, revealing how quickly everything came together following their initial sit down with J57, banging out two songs in just a few short hours; with a bottle of Jameson again.
El and Ras run through a couple of songs off the album before shooting a quick and dirty video for “This Is Jamo Gang.”
Jamo Gang is set to release their album in late summer of this year and are ready to start the roll out for the album’s campaign later this month. Their debut show as a group will also be in NYC at Arlene’s Grocery on April 13th, backed by a live band and J57 on the boards as well!
