Watch JPEGMAFIA Perform “Thug Tears” on COLORS
As we reach the final weeks of 2018, it’s a perfect window of time to look back at some of the artists who truly turned some heads and pushed the ball forward over the past 12 months. With this in mind, one act that must be mentioned is Baltimore’s own JPEGMAFIA, as he raised hell with one of my favorite projects of the year, Veteran. As abstract as JPEG gets, he’s an incredibly creative and ambitious artist, and today, this is put on display as he lets loose an energetic performance of the Veteran standout “Thug Tears” at COLORS Studios. With a tremendous supply of mic presence and an endlessly entertaining personality, this performance is definitely one of COLORS’ wildest to date. The budding talent lets out every bit of aggression that he feels in front of a smooth purple backdrop, and the result is a must-watch video for fans both new and old of Baltimore’s own. Notably, this video arrives just weeks after JPEGMAFIA’s new, Kenny Beats-produced single, “Puff Daddy” — be sure to stream the song here and watch the man himself perform “Thug Tears” at the link below!
