Thanks to the Dreamville-association, a DJ Khaled placement, and the meteoric rise of J.I.D. and EarthGang, Spillage Villiage has become a powerful force rich with young talent.
With “Outside,” it’s it’s Jurdan Bryant’s turn to showcase the next level creativity and approach that makes SV so special.
I love Bryant’s demonstrative approach. More methodical and resonant, his voice really echoes out atop whatever he chooses to rap over; here, it’s a bass-driven boom-bap effort produced by Nicky Quinn and Spillage Villiage producer (and Bryant’s brother) Hollywood JB. The minimalist beat, combined with Bryant’s stalwart flow is the perfect vehicle for the stark, unflinching look into life “Outside” in Bryant’s hometown, Baltimore.
Bringing the vivid imagery to life, “Outside” comes equipped with a powerful short film directed by Austin-Taylor Richburg (who also played bass on the effort) and Alonzo Hellerbach.
From top to bottom, “Outside” is a striking, can’t miss piece of art.
