Sonic Boom Bap ft. DJ Mark Ski (Prod. J57)

from by J57



A lot of fun facts about this track, right I'll list them:
- I originally used the main part of this song for my old group The Kill World on an unreleased BANGER we had. Figured I'd reflip 12 yrs later (which was like, 6 months ago) for fun, and it came out TOO dope. I was originally going to feature El Gant & DJ Starscream from Slipknot on this but felt like they'd make more sense on another track (or tracks) on my next LP.

- I featured my homie DJ Mark Ski on this. His cuts are awesome as hell, as always. I kinda just wanted to feature him on a track, so that's why he's on it. Dude is dope and a good friend, so I'm glad I made that decision. #fivese7enmusic

- This is the title track, but originally the EP was going to be called "Same Old Jimmy" till I realized in my sleep one night (a week ago when I decided to put this EP out) that, that title wasn't good for an EP; it felt corny, 'been done' and unmemorable. <--- well, thats what I gathered in my sleep.. I wasnt able to make that decision / see it from an outside perspective while awake.

- When I decided to put this EP together / release (a week ago, like I've said), I was like, "I need some dope artwork for this one." So, I jumped on my homie D.Catalano's instagram to look at photos he's posted recently and this was one of them. Go to to see his incredible work (and please listen to his music, too, I promise you'll be impressed).

- Last fun fact: these are all songs that didn't make it on to my next LP "We Can Be Kings" which drops next yr, but they were too good to scrap. I have 11 songs that didnt make the cut for the next LP; these 8 were the cream of the crop of those 11 (well, there was a 9th song but I had a sample issue so the owner of the sample and I decided that it's best that the song isn't on'll all make sense in the future, though ).
