One of the label’s longest-tenured JAMLA artists, Oakland’s GQ will release his first project in years, A Midsummer’s Nightmare, on September 18.
A seven-track EP, the project will be produced in its entirety by 9th Wonder. “A Midsummer’s Nightmare, ironically symbolizes the time we’re in as a country and world,” GQ explains. “But also defines the thoughts and moments of myself at this moment in my life. Almost like living a world within a world. Beyond being inspired by the music itself, the inspiration came from life itself and just my current mental space. It’s always fun and an honor to work with 9th. So to do an EP with him was special.
He has also shared the EP’s first offering, “Big Lutha.” Get into it below.
